• Athletics faces long battle to regain trust says Coe


    PORTLAND: Athletics chief Sebastian Coe admitted Thursday (Friday in Manila) that his drug scandal-tainted sport faced a grueling battle to regain trust as it embarks on the road to recovery at the World Indoor Championships. Coe said he had no idea how long it would take to win back fans disgusted by months of lurid headlines about drugs and corruption that followed last year’s bombshell World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report into Russian doping. The beleaguered International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) president has faced mounting calls to step down over his handling of the worst crisis in track and field history, with US distance runner Alysia Montano and track legend Carl Lewis both calling his leadership into question.
