Salazar under scrutiny by anti-doping agency

Salazar under scrutiny by anti-doping agency”

"I am pretty confident that in the short term - you mentioned Tokyo 2020 - a repetition of that situation is unlikely", said Reedie, who will be replaced by Poland's sports minister Witold Banka on January 1. These words which I used at the 4th World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg 2013, are still true today. "It is not a new idea to engage big sponsors as part of their corporate social responsibility", Banka told an global anti-doping conference.

"That will be one of the biggest tasks: to convince the big companies to join the Olympic anti-doping solidarity fund", he added. An average football club has a bigger budget.

Half of WADA's budget of about $40 million a year comes from the Olympic movement, and the IOC's injection of another $10 million contribution is significant.

"By putting the focus more on the entourage, by holding everybody implicated in a doping case accountable in a robust and deterrent way, and by close cooperation between all anti-doping stakeholders, we can take a major step forward to strengthen justice and credibility for the protection of the clean athletes and to drain the doping swamp".

"The athlete is not the only culprit", he said.

In a statement, Ukad chief executive Nicole Sapstead said: "We have been working with Usada on their investigation into the Nike Oregon Project and will work with Wada on their investigation if there is any evidence that relates to athletes or athlete support personnel under our jurisdiction".

The verdict resulted in Salazar's Nike Oregon Project being shut down, though the 61-year-old stated he will appeal his four-year ban.

During the conference, the incumbent Polish Minister of Sport and Tourism Witold Banka will be elected as the new president of WADA, and former Chinese speed skating world champion Yang Yang as the vice-president.

Russian Federation handed over data from its Moscow laboratory in January as a condition of its reintegration into the sporting fold after a three-year suspension for a state-sponsored doping programme.

The head of Russia's rebuilt anti-doping agency pleaded with President Vladimir Putin for support as the country moves closer to a possible ban from next year's Olympics.

"We can not keep raising contributions". "We have to change the people who realized this approach because now Russian sport is in the fifth year of the doping crisis".
