Olympic hurdles champion bids for top WADA job

7:30 am on 1 August 2013

The former dual Olympic 400 metres hurdling champion Edwin Moses has launched his bid for the presidency of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Moses has become the third candidate for the post, joining the former IOC medical director Patrick Schamasch and IOC Vice President Craig Reedie of Britain in the race for the job currently held by Australian John Fahey.

57-year-old Moses, chairman of the United States Anti-Doping Agency since 2012, dominated his one-lap event for a decade, putting together a remarkable winning streak of 122 consecutive races between 1977 and 1987.
