Disturbing doping report will shake sport: WADA
World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) chief Craig Reedie has said new accusations of mass doping in athletics will “shake the foundation” of clean sport.
Reedie said at an International Olympic Committee (IOC) meeting here on Sunday that the numbers involved in new allegations had shocked him, reports news.com.au.
WADA said in a statement that it was “very alarmed” by the accusations broadcast by German television channel ARD and reported by Britain’s Sunday Times. Russian and Kenyan athletes featured strongly in the programme, aired just three weeks before the start of the World Championships in Beijing.
“WADA is very disturbed by these new allegations that have been raised by ARD which will,
once again, shake the foundation of clean athletes worldwide,” Reedie said.
