The IOC continues to lead the way in pushing for reforms to the system. Already at the Olympic Games Rio 2016, sanctioning was made the responsibility of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), independent of the IOC; and for PyeongChang 2018, we also plan to make testing fully independent from the IOC, as already agreed by the IOC Executive Board in 2015.
As for WADA’s governance, we hope to make it more independent from both sports organisations and governments. We have already offered to elect a neutral President of WADA, but this has not yet been accepted by our partners in WADA – and we are still ready to discuss this once again. We have appointed independent experts for the WADA governance working group to give independent advice on how best to reform the governance of WADA.
