WORLD SPORTS BODIES WELCOME STRICTER ANTI-DOPING RULES

0

JOHANNESBURG: Global sporting bodies voiced wide support for more stringent punishment of athletes who use banned performance-enhancers as they discussed revised rules at a conference on Wednesday. Delegates welcomed longer bans for athletes caught doping intentionally, which will pass from two years to four when the new anti-doping code comes into effect in 2015. American anti-doping agency USADA was also in favor of stringent punishments, a year after it handed a lifetime ban to fallen cycling hero Lance Armstrong.
