Ben Hoffman on the Important Role of Nutrition Companies in Clean Sport
This is an excerpt from an article originally published in Triathlete magazine, authored by Ben Hoffman. 
 
As a professional triathlete, I pay close attention to everything I put into my body. My vigilance is partially motivated by a drive to eat clean; knowing that quality nutrition plays a key role in my goals of high-performance. Equally, though, it’s out of a necessity to protect my livelihood and personal integrity. During a one-hour window each day, I am required to be available for an out-of-competition doping control test by our national anti-doping agency. Being a clean athlete is something I take very seriously, and an unintentional doping violation could change the direction of my trajectory in this sport.
