Sir Craig Reedie Hopes for IOC Nomination for WADA Presidency

By iSportconnect | June 5, 2013

Sir Craig Reedie hopes the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will nominate him for the presidential candidacy at the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Candidates have to be nominated by the IOC and Sir Craig, bronchi who is a vice-president at the IOV, as well as the head of the Evaluation Commission, has previously expressed his interest.

Speaking exclusively to iSportconnect, Sir Craig confirmed he wanted the IOC to put him forward.

“I hope they do (nominate me),” said Sir Craig. “I would be happy to help.”

Sir Craig was the Treasurer for WADA when the organisation was first created and he said that his knowledge of the business side of the operation would make him ideal for the presidency.

At the end of May Sir Craig was in pole position to take over from current president John Fahey, who will be stepping down.

Sir Craig’s only rival Denis Oswald decided to run for the presidency at the IOC and therefore ruled himself out of the WADA presidential race.
