Beckie Scott’s parting words to WADA: put athletes first
Outgoing WADA athlete committee chair Beckie Scott of Alberta, who won an Olympic gold medal in cross-country skiing at the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City, ended her five-year term today at the WADA World Conference in Poland. Her parting words to the organization were a call for “integrity, transparency and accountability” going forward. WADA elected Witold Banka of Poland as its new president, replacing Sir Craig Reedie, who will step down at the end of this year. Banka is currently Poland’s minister of sport.

Scott claimed she became a target for bullying by members of WADA’s executive committee upon resigning from the Compliance Review Committee in the wake of the decision to re-instate the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) before it had fulfilled all the conditions for re-instatement.
It’s official and we’re thrilled!…
