Will WADA And The IOC Save Or Destroy One Another?
“My impression is that the IOC is nursing a sense of grievance against WADA, of wounded pride and smouldering resentment … I fear that lurking behind the IOC’s subtly scripted summit declaration on remaking WADA, are designs to undermine and supplant it. … If there is any merit to this impression, then I should offer the IOC leadership some simple advice. Not everyone who stands up to you is your enemy, just as not everyone who flatters you is your friend. Ultimately, WADA and the IOC will be one another’s salvation, or undoing. The only people who would prosper from a confrontation between the two institutions would be those who trade upon doping in sport.”
– CEO of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption, Akaash Maharaj, speaking in wake of the recent Olympic summit about the IOC’s lack of support for WADA. She added, “I left those discussions with a sense that the mismatch between WADA’s colossal mission and its pygmy resources is flatly absurd.”
