New Wada president calls for sponsor support; International Olympic Committee pledges $10m

WADA confirm they will investigate athletes who worked under disgraced former coach Alberto Salazar

Speaking at the World Conference on doping in sport, Reedie said the Russian doping affair that emerged ahead of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and saw the involvement of a vast number of athletes, coaches and officials was the biggest challenge WADA had faced in its 20-year existence.

Later, WADA's incoming president Witold Banka took a swipe at the scale of the agency's "ridiculous" budget of less than 40 million dollars.

"An average football club has a bigger budget".

A total of $5m of that amount will go towards storing test samples from pre-Olympics testing for ten years, while the other $5m will be put towards stepping up scientific research efforts and strengthening the investigative powers of Wada itself.

He added that the financial contribution from sport's combined stakeholders is estimated at $260 million during the four-year Olympic cycle.

Thomas Bach said on Tuesday that the new doping testing method - Dried Blood Spots (DBS) - will be introduced no later than by the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing. Together we can send a strong signal from Katowice to the athletes of the world and to the general public: "a signal of determination, a signal of cooperation, a signal of credibility", said the German.

It was closed down by Nike last month as the Salazar situation had become "an unfair burden" on athletes on the elite training programme.

"The clear question is did any of the allegations concerning Salazar and his operations result in athletes cheating themselves, which might have influenced their performance and might have involved the winning of competitions", Wada president Sir Craig Reedie told BBC Sport.

Russian Federation handed over data from its Moscow laboratory in January as a condition of its reintegration into the sporting fold after a three-year suspension for a state-sponsored doping programme.

He'll be under the microscope, as WADA deals with a continuing case involving Russian cheating. "We have better company structures, and we know much more about the business", said Reedie, who is also an International Olympic Committee member. "We've been in this crisis for five years now, and that crisis is unfortunately becoming even worse and deeper now".
