One of those few times when modern sport journalism feels important

Over the past week we have returned to the favourite interviews of 2012 with the Newstalk sport department hacks. The final offering in the series is my own selection, the Paul Kimmage interview on Off the Ball. The Off the Ball team and Newstalk Sport team made a commitment to keep the issue of doping in cycling on the air, and this interview with Paul Kimmage, in the wake of Lance Armstrong’s shaming in the USADA report, was a wonderful moment of vindication for Kimmage and those who had fought against doping in cycling for so many years.
