IOC President and WADA President On Landis Charges

From the Associated Press:

The the IOC and World Anti-Doping Agency said on Friday that if Floyd Landis has proof of doping by seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, he should back it up with concrete evidence.

“He has to bring proof that this is true,” IOC president Jacques Rogge said. “These are accusations that need to be corroborated by proof.You can’t condemn without proof,” Rogge added.

WADA president John Fahey said if there is any substance to allegations, either the US Anti-Doping Agency or International Cycling Union should intervene.

“If he has evidence, he should make that evidence available to the USADA or UCI and I’m sure if there is any substance to that evidence, either of those bodies would act,” Fahey said.

Rogge and Fahey spoke after Landis, in a series of e-mails confessed to years of doping after having previously denied cheating.
