Former WADA boss Dick Pound says doping so widespread he no longer has faith in elite sport


Read for instance Mail Online

“It’s pretty clear just from the numbers of people being caught that drug use is rampant, and it’s rampant at the top end of sports.”

“This isn’t people ranked at No 300 taking drugs to boost them up the rankings, it’s the people at the top who have used drugs to get there. I believe it’s happening across sports. It’s clear that cycling, athletics, swimming, tennis and soccer have major problems and are ruled by governing bodies in denial.”
