• IAAF attacks ‘naive’ doping experts


    PARIS: World athletics’ ruling body the IAAF on Saturday condemned as ‘naive’ the two blood experts at the centre of mass doping allegations. Australian scientists Michael Ashenden and Robin Parisotto have claimed hundreds of athletes had returned “suspicious” doping tests results. Their allegation was based on the examination of a leaked database provided to them by Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper and German broadcaster ARD containing more than 12,000 blood tests from 5,000 athletes between 2001 and 2012. This week the IAAF robustly denied any negligence in its testing procedure in an affair that has marred the build-up to this month’s world championships in Beijing.
