U.S. anti-doping chief wants more transparency in testing



The chief of the United Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) wants transparency in the run-up to the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“All countries should publish the exact of tests carried , with the name of the athlete, in real time.

“The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)  this data. They should publish it.

“We think that only be fair especially in the of the Coronavirus situation and the doping scandal in Russia.

“Because only in this way do we all get trust in the athletes and the checks made around the world again,’’ Travis Tygart told Germany’s Sport Bild magazine on .

Tygart said there was fear of the great unknown at the coming Tokyo Games this July because it was unfortunately not public who and how often was tested worldwide.

According to Tygart, the 2016 Rio Games 1,913 athletes in 10 sports with the highest doping risk that did not have a single check before the Games.

That something like that happen it’s completely unacceptable. (dpa/NAN)
