LAUSANNE (Xinhua) -- The International Olympic Committee (IOC) expressed its support to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) after the U.S. threatened to cut off its funding for the agency.
The report from the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) concluded that the U.S. was not represented enough in WADA proportionate to its contribution - $2.7 million per year to the core budget of WADA - and that WADA had not made enough efforts in reform.
In a letter to James W. Carroll, director of the office of ONDCP, WADA president Witold Banka said it was "with great disappointment” that he read the 19-page ONDCP report.
Banka’s letter was attached with an annotated version of the ONDCP Report, outlining "the misleading information and inaccuracies and the report contains; and, what the report omits in terms of factual information.”
