Description The aim of this study was to identify how the athletes feel about doping in track and field. Data have been collected from the online anonymous questionnaire. A total of 76 athletes participated (men and women). The results indicate that the older throwers are better educated than the young throwers. Also, the older throwers don´t believe in clear winning Olympic Games or world championship against the young ones. The critical period for succumbing to the opinion that you can´t win without doping is between 17 to 23 years. In the Czech Republic should be instituted an advisory body for athletes and coaches. Systematic education in courses and discussions on throwing camps could lead to a more aware approach to the issue of doping.
