Craig, at some point in time clean athletes will want (okay, okay – should want) the leaders of their governing bodies to be transparent about what they know with respect to both the financial and performance enhancing areas of their respective sports. Current leaders such as USA Swimming’s Chuck Wielgus should “enthusiastically” open their personal financial doors to forensic auditors; same with Seb Coe.

If they’re clean, then short of a personal indiscretion or two, doing so will help bridge the trust gap; if they’re not then we should also see an increase in resignations…

Only an athletes’ council can hold feet to the fire of greed.

Craig Lord

Just so, Steve
