Olympic leaders have asked the World Anti-Doping Agency to oversee a global system for tackling drug cheats with an independent body testing athletes and more powers to punish failing organizations.
The IOC says it upheld WADA’s role, after months of strained relations amid fallout from the agency’s call to ban Russia from the Rio de Janeiro Games because of state-backed doping.
The IOC hosted a meeting of world sports leaders Saturday to call for a “more robust, more efficient, more transparent and more harmonized” anti-doping system, and more finance for WADA under the reforms.
