April 22, 2013
Time:7-9 p.m.
Description:As the professional cycling community continues to come to grips with doping confessions that have rocked the sport, the College of Communication's Texas Program in Sports and Media (TPSM) hosts its 2013 McGarr Symposium on Sports and Society, titled "The Real Price of Winning at All Costs: A Discussion About Elite Cycling." A panel of cyclists and other experts addresses the importance of fair play, the urgency of anti-doping measures and the rooting out of a culture of corruption in sport.

The event features Greg LeMond, three-time Tour de France champion; Greg's wife, Kathy; Betsy Andreu, wife of professional cyclist Frankie Andreu; Bill Bock, general counsel to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency; and Reed Albergotti, white collar crimes reporter for The Wall Street Journal. Michael Cramer, TPSM director, serves as moderator. The educational discussion will take a closer look at what happens when a culture of cheating and corruption takes over a sport. The panelists will discuss the physical, emotional and ethical costs that elite cyclists have had to face in the recent history of the sport.
Location:Belo Center for New Media (BMC), second-floor auditorium, 300 W. Dean Keeton St.
