Quote Of The Day
“Our conclusion is clear: while the stated objective of the new Code on penalties is to make longer – and specifically four-year penalties – the norm, there is a significant risk that the specific provisions of the Code will undermine and, in effect, work against the realisation of that goal. ”
“Athletics will do its part, but we believe there needs to be a collective responsibility of the global sports community to move not just rhetorically but in reality to four-year sanctions for serious violations.”
“… It is no good the IAAF unearthing – as we did – a serious case of pre-meditated and sophisticated cheating involving multiple athletes if the CAS Panel is ultimately only going to impose a sanction of two years and nine months. When clear evidence of cheating is presented, four years must truly mean four years.”
– IAAF Council Member and 4-time Canadian Olympian Abby Hoffman speaking for the IAAF at the 2013 World Conference on Doping in Sport talking about how the new WADA code allows for too many loopholes for athletes to get out of the supposed new “minimum 4-year ban”. Under the proposed code, athletes can get a reduction to 2-years simply by saying they didn’t mean to cheat or by confessing. Just say you’re guilty or not guilty and you win.
