MONTREAL (AP) - World Anti-Doping Agency President John Fahey will remain the chief enforcer against drug cheating in sports through 2013.
The 65-year-old former Australian finance minister was re-elected for a second three-year term Sunday. He succeeded Canadian Dick Pound in 2007, becoming the first government representative to hold the position. Arne Ljungqvist was retained as WADA’s vice president.
Fahey said in a statement he will continue to seek “enhanced cooperation and sharing of information between governments and sport authorities.”
Also, Johannesburg will host the fourth World Conference on Doping in Sport in 2013. It beat out bids from Dallas and Sochi, Russia.
