Former WADA boss weighs in on BOA's doping ban

International news logo

Former World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) president, Dick Pound has come out against the British Olympic Association's (BOA) lifetime ban of dopers. In a column on the Guardian's website he wrote that the BOA has "put itself in a position of being a rogue" and that its "conduct is unworthy" especially since it will host the 2012 Olympics.

The WADA took legal advice in Great Britain and ruled just over a week ago that the BOA was not compliant with its code. BOA is expected to appeal WADA's ruling to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
