Dick Pound's Report For WADA Finds Major Drug-Testing Failures
Canadian IOC member Dick Pound in a new report for WADA found that "anti-doping programs are failing and drug cheats are getting away scot-free because of a lack of will among sports organizations, governments and athletes." Pound "called out sports federations, the IOC and WADA itself for not doing enough to catch serial dopers like Lance Armstrong." He added that the "whole system" is "undermined by bickering among different groups, political interference, conflicts of interest and lack of incentives for nabbing drug offenders." Pound was WADA's first Chair from '99-08 (AP, 5/15).
