“The IAAF did more than others, before the others, but is now criticized by people, who have no insight into the work of IAAF, for not having done enough. Regrettably, I did not hear any criticism against the many sports and anti-doping organisations who have never implemented a robust blood testing programme as part of their anti-doping programme. This is highly unfair to the IAAF, an institution which should be regarded in high esteem for its countless efforts and investment, throughout its history, to tackle doping in athletics in the most efficient and intelligent way."
WADA officials said they "delpore" the method the blood data was obtained and reiterated that values from before 2009 could not be used to determine doping and that one suspicious value doesn't necessarily prove doping.
