1ST LEAD IOC boss Bach proposes overhaul of WADA and CAS By dpa correspondents

Prague (dpa) - International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach on Friday suggested a complete overhaul of work done by the World Anti-Doping Agency and having the Court of Arbitration for Sport as the sole body to hand out sanctions.

Speaking at the assembly of the European Olympic Committees in Prague, Bach‘s proposals also included setting up an intelligence-gathering body within WADA.

Bach said last month, before the affair around Russian athletics and the sport‘s ruling body IAAF, that an Olympic Summit proposed "an initiative to make the anti-doping system more independent of sports organisations."

WADA has agreed this week to look into it, and Bach offered his three proposals as "some food for thought" and that their adaptation would "in one or the other way would lead to a more efficient, more transparent, more streamlined, more cost efficient, more harmonised anti-doping system.

"It would better protect the clean athletes and enhance the credibility of sport," he said.

Bach said "a testing and results management organisation within WADA should be set up independent from the monitoring and regulatory functions of WADA" and that this body would also "coordinate the work of the National Anti-Doping Agencies to ensure a streamlined, efficient and worldwide harmonised anti-doping system."

He said that setting up a professional intelligence gathering unit "would allow WADA to be proactive" and could address compliance issues as well.

The IOC president also proposed a new role for the CAS, which is currently used only for appeals against sanctions imposed by sports federations or anti-doping organizations.

"Sanctions could be pronounced only by CAS. In such a way also the system of sanctions would be centralised, be cost efficient and lead to harmonisation among all sports and among all countries. The current right to appeal such sanctions to a different chamber of CAS would be fully upheld and guaranteed," Bach said.

The current anti-doping system has been questioned for a while, most recently in connection with the latest affair around athletics in which the Russian team has been provisionally suspended by the IAAF in the wake of a WADA report on widespread doping and cover-ups of positive tests.

WADA has suspended the accreditation of the Moscow laboratory and the Russian anti-doping organization RUSADA.

Bach met with Russian Olympic Committee president Alexander Zhukov in Prague and was reportedly told that Russia has taken first steps to be compliant with international doping rules.

The Russian athletics team could miss the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro over the affair.

Looking at next year‘s Games, Bach said that "WADA will lead intelligence gathering funded by the IOC to make testing in the lead up to the Olympic Games Rio de Janeiro as efficient and independent as possible.

"Out-of-competition testing during the Olympic Games will also be guided by this intelligence group from WADA to make it more targeted and more effective."
