Following the latest scandal that has engulfed athletics, with two of the sport's biggest stars, Tyson Gay and Asafa Powell, failing drugs tests, the 11-time Paralympic champion urges more must be done.
Grey-Thompson, one of Britain's most successful Paralympians, told Sky Sports: "I think we have to have much more testing of athletes.
"There would be a cost with that but I think it I possible to do it. Every week would be very challenging in terms of time spent travelling and training, but the out of competition testing is what I think we can make a difference.
"I think for sports to prove they're clean I think there's going to be demand for more testing."
