IOC backs Craig Reedie for new 3-year WADA term

Nov 13, 2016

The IOC is backing Craig Reedie’s bid for a new three-year term as president of the World Anti-Doping Agency, despite the tensions that broke out between the two sides over the Russian doping scandal.

The support for Reedie to continue in his role came after he assured the International Olympic Committee that he would “respect the rules and responsibilities of WADA and its stakeholders,” suggesting the agency will refrain in the future from publicly calling for a nation to be barred from the Olympics, as it did with Russia before the games in Rio de Janeiro.
