And here is what we end up with – the World Anti-Doping Agency, International Association of Athletics Federations, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the 2016 Rio Olympics, Canadian Dick Pound (Richard William Duncan “Dick” Pound), Craig Reedie from Britain, the WADA President, New Zealander David Howman, Director General of the WADA who currently resides in Canada, British Sebastian Newbold Coe, Baron Coe, CH KBE (Lord Coe), American Travis Tygart, USADA’s CEO, Canadian Richard McLaren, a member of the special committee to investigate the allegations of doping use in Russian sports, and Puerto-Rican Richard Carrión.
