British Olympic boss slams WADA

10:35 am on 16 November 2011

The British Olympic Association chairman Colin Moynihan has called on the World Anti-Doping Agency to make big changes to the way it operates after reaffirming his commitment to lifetime Olympic bans for drug cheats.

Moynihan says WADA had been unable to achieve its objectives despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars in the 10 years since its creation.

He's urged WADA to reduce the cost of testing, speed up its processes and go after doctors, coaches, and others who aid and abet cheats.

Moynihan says the WADA's systems have failed and the likes of Marion Jones, many cyclists and the BALCO operation are only a few of the cases brought by law enforcement officers rather the agency.
