League Notes: New WADA President Wants To Test Hair To Identify Drug Cheats

World Anti-Doping Agency President Craig Reedie said that "athletes may soon have their hair tested to determine if they are drugs cheats." Reedie said that a new $10M fund set up by the IOC "should open up new testing techniques to catch cheats."

With this money, the "Spanish Red Cross guarantees that it can provide food for 343 people over the course of a month" (AS, 1/2). ... The Badminton Association of Malaysia will invest RM1,000 ($300) a month "on every potential player earmarked by them at state level."
