This would not only simplify the process but also lift the burden placed on Member Federations and reduce the number of legal appeals slowing down the sanctioning process. Our actions must be aimed at protecting the ambitions of the vast majority of clean athletes” he states.

“Now is the time to reinforce our ambitions and build on the many achievements of President Lamine Diack, to recognise that we have new challenges and that we need to show vision and leadership in tackling those challenges. 
We should ensure that athletes are at the heart of our thinking and that we have structures and policies which make our sport attractive for all our competitors. We must also address the interests and energies of young people directly, to shape our sport so that it excites the next generation of competitors, fans and viewers.”
