World Anti-Doping Agency needs 'neutral' leader - ANOC President

World Anti-Doping Agency needs 'neutral' leader - ANOC PresidentThe influential head of the world's national Olympic committees has called for a "neutral" leader of the World Anti-Doping Agency, putting in question the future of current president Craig Reedie, Associated Press reports.

WADA — and particularly its handling of the Russian doping scandal — came under sharp attack Wednesday at the general assembly of the Association of National Olympic Committees.

ANOC President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah says reforms of the anti-doping body will be difficult "unless we will have a neutral chair for the next three years."

The sheikh proposed a resolution seeking a "neutral leadership of the reform of the organization."

Reedie, an IOC member from Britain, is scheduled to be re-elected as WADA president for a second three-year term at agency meetings this weekend in Glasgow, Scotland.
