The Case For Taking Anti-Doping Out of FINA Hands & Heading The Hunt Down New Path

Give everything, take nothing: Nada's welcome presence was unavoidable as Berlin hosted the European Championships in the former East 25 years after the fall of the Wall in 2014 - though someone forgot the box marked EPO when it came to anti-doping tests for the meet and FINA refused to ratify some world records established in Berlin until told to do so by the CAS

Editorial: Hard to know where to start as we rummage through the anti-doping flotsam and jetsam. Where the search ends is clearer: time for FINA to hand over anti-doping control to others and for the fed and event organisers to feel the Nineties pinch once more. If you want clean sport, stand up for it – and let us know if anyone out there tries to stop you

Compelling argument to remove anti-doping testing powers from FINA. I would be keen to understand the monies involved here. I suspect that any attempt to hand power over to WADA will be met with resistance from the IF. 1.) because it removes power, which we all know they treasure and; 2) a WADA-led, comprehensive process utilising a retrospective invoicing method will not enable the IF to top slice money somehow.
