I want to believe that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is fighting to make all sports better and clean, but every quote from some figure of WADA makes me crazy. Cyclingnews reports that John Fahey, the successor to infamous WADA chief and current IOC official Dick Pound, states that WADA may recommend that the International Olympic Committee remove weightlifting and cycling from the Olympics because of their history of rampant doping.
Yeah riiiight. Because those two sports are dirty compared to….I don’t know, track and field? I mean, there’s been no history of doping in track and field. And if there has been, it certainly hasn’t led to Olympic medals being reassigned or world records being invalidated.
