Anti-doping leaders demand Wada overhaul with clean sport 'at crossroads'

An overhaul of the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) has been proposed in a bid to restore trust in international sport.

The leaders of 17 national anti-doping organisations met at a special summit in Copenhagen this week.

The group says the fight for clean sport is now "at a crossroads".

Damning reports into Russian state-sponsored doping, which led to a partial Rio Olympics ban, have shaken the anti-doping community.

The country has been given a blanket ban from competing at the Rio Paralympics, which start on 7 September.

Among the range of reforms agreed was a demand that Wada becomes more independent.

Under the proposals, Wada executives would not be be able to simultaneously hold a policy-making position within another sports organisation.
