WADA President Vitold Banka re-elected for a second three-year term

MOSCOW, November 18 – RIA Novosti. Vitold Banka has been re-elected President of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). reported on the official website of the organization.

On Friday, the WADA Council in Montreal, Canada, unanimously re-elected the Bank for a second three-year term. Alongside the Bank, Yang Yang, the organization’s vice president, was re-elected for a new term. The second terms of the Presidency and Vice Presidency will begin on January 1, 2023 and will run until the end of 2025.

The bank has been chairman of WADA since January 1, 2020.

In December 2019, after a series of doping scandals surrounding Russian sports, the WADA executive committee declared the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) non-compliance with anti-doping law and banned Russian athletes from participating in major international competitions for four years. Including the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Having received a notification from RUSADA that it did not agree with the decision of the executive committee, WADA applied to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS). On December 17, 2020, CAS relaxed WADA sanctions and reduced the suspension to two years: Russian athletes cannot compete in major international competitions under the Russian flag until December 16, 2022. Within two years (or earlier, in agreement with WADA), RUSADA must meet a number of conditions, including an audit, to restore World Anti-Doping Code compliance status.
