Former WADA Investigator Blames WADA President Craig Reedie For Russian Mess

Former WADA Investigator Blames WADA President Craig Reedie For Russian Mess

In what appears to be a bit of a tell-all with Pro Republica, former World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) chief investigator, Jack Robertson, claims that WADA’s president, Craig Reedie, dragged his feet in dealing with allegations regarding the Russian doping situation “leading to the 11th-hour debate on whether athletes should be allowed to compete in the Olympics.”

If Robertson’s allegations are correct this would mean that WADA has known since last August that they would need to do an independent commission report but chose to wait.

According to Robertson,

We knew since last August and WADA waited until May to name an independent commission to investigate all Russian sport and the lab. In November, after the first investigation press conference, [Olympic cross-country ski champion and chair of the WADA athletes’ committee] Beckie Scott demanded that WADA investigate other sports, not just athletics. [WADA president Craig] Reedie said he’d take it under advisement, and he blew her off. WADA waited until the 11th hour, only once it was exposed to the public by ’60 Minutes’ and the New York Times, and so the IOC could say there wasn’t enough time.
