Police protection should be afforded to whistleblowersin the war on doping in sport, the boss of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Olivier Niggli, said today. He described those who get hidden information out to anti-doping authorities and others so that investigations can be conducted and the truth told as “desperately” needed. A speaker at the Tackling Doping in Sport Conference in London, Niggli said that whistleblowers such as the Russian athlete Yuliya Stepanova* and her husband Vitaly, a former Rusada (Russian anti-doping agency) official were invaluable sources of information in the fight against drug cheats.
