World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has criticised a report by the White House’s Office for National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) that was sent to the United States Congress, describing it as written with a “clear intention to discredit” the organisation.

Loading… As part of its “extensive” response WADA highlights some of the areas where it offers what it calls “key facts and clarifications”, in relation to representation, funding and governance reforms. On the area of representation the ONDCP claimed it had a lack of representation on WADA Governing Boards and committees, when compared to its financial contribution. In response WADA said: “The US is very well represented within WADA – better than any other single nation and has been since WADA’s creation in 1999. “When the full range of committees and advisory bodies are considered, the US still has greater representation on WADA governance bodies than any other nation.” Currently the US has 11 representatives participating in governance roles within WADA. The ONDCP claimed that WADA’s top leadership bodies “should be proportionate to financial contributions”, a suggestion WADA claimed made “no sense”. “To allocate seats exclusively to the highest funders would eliminate the majority of nations of the world from ever holding a seat on WADA’s Board or Executive Committee and would not be in line with international best practice,” WADA write. “If Governments were represented in line with how much funding they provided WADA, it would bar any representation from entire continents, let alone certain nations. “Countries – and not necessarily the ones with the best history of anti-doping – could effectively buy seats on WADA’s governance “WADA cannot be governed solely by the few richest countries.” In the report to the US Congress, the ONDCP said they believed “insufficient progress” had been made by WADA working groups that had been convened in November 2016 to explore options to reform. In response to this point, WADA wrote: “WADA’s governance reform over the last three years has been comprehensive, and, has clearly shown the agency’s willingness and ability to adapt, and yet, the report makes no mention of this progress.” WADA also highlighted some governance reforms that had been implemented. The reforms included the “formation of a Nominations Committee to ensure the right people in terms of skills and independence serve in senior governance roles within WADA, an independent President and vice-president, a minimum of one seat each for both athlete and NADO representation in all Standing Committees, and a limit of nine years in total for all members of the Board, Executive Committee, and Standing Committees, with no possibility of stepping out for a term and returning.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The ONDCP has threatened to withdraw its funding of WADA, warning that the international body needs to undergo serious reform. The ONDCP issued a series of recommendations in a report to Congress earlier this month, criticising the structure of WADA and questioning whether the country’s investment into the organisation was value for money. WADA claimed that the report was full of “multiple inaccuracies, misconceptions and falsehoods”, and has now sent a comprehensive response to the ONDCP. The response, seen by insidethegames, includes a version of the original report complete with annotations, highlighting inaccurate information, as well as additional factual information that WADA claims was omitted from the original version. In a covering letter to the full response, addressed to ONDCP director James Carroll, WADA President Witold Banka wrote: “It is very disconcerting that, although the US has been around WADA’s Board table for 21 years, the report’s allegations have never been raised by US representatives. “In fact, the US approved WADA’s proposed governance reforms in November 2018, and, just recently you personally voted in favour of WADA’s new Strategic Plan for 2020 to 2024. “Quite frankly, the US’s behaviour around the Board table over the past years is simply irreconcilable with the allegations outlined within the report. “I remain convinced that the US Government has an important role to play in protecting clean sport, and, it is my sincere hope that, going forward, we can work collaboratively rather than WADA having to defend itself against unfounded attacks via the media, which do absolutely nothing to advance the global anti-doping programme for athletes worldwide.” In an executive summary responding to the original ONDCP report WADA claimed they viewed it with “great disappointment” writing: “As the US has been a long standing Foundation Board member of WADA, it was all the more surprising that the ONDCP did not consult the Agency on the Report, or at the very least, verify the factual veracity of the allegations being made against WADA. “Instead, in the days before publication, the ONDCP informed WADA of the impending report and asked the agency to verify three paragraphs by a certain deadline and, when we did so in good faith, pointing out numerous inaccuracies and misleading statements, it chose not to incorporate our clarifications. “It is very unfortunate that the ONDCP report was written without due regard for the facts or context and with the clear intention to discredit WADA. read also:WADA wants answers after banned Sun’s ‘Olympic training call-up’ “It is beyond WADA’s comprehension that such a report has been produced when representatives from the US Government have never raised any of these concerns around the Board table over the past 21 years.”
Sanchez’s departure brings to an end his disappointing two-and-a-half-year spell at Old Trafford. After arriving in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Arsenal, he went on to score just five goals in 45 games for United. After confirming Sanchez’s exit, a United statement read: “Everyone at Manchester United wishes Alexis Sanchez all the best in his future career as he joins Inter Milan on a permanent transfer.” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer addressed Sanchez’s move following United’s win over LASK in the Europa League on Thursday, saying: “They’ve liked him, so of course that’s a good move for him. “Wish him all the best. He’s a top player that we want to see play his best football. For whatever reason we didn’t see the best of Alexis, but he’s a top professional and we just wish him all the best.” Sanchez started life at Inter slowly, in part due to injury, but he was one of their most impressive performers after the restart, scoring three goals and assisting seven more as Inter secured second place in Serie A. Manchester United forward, Alexis Sanchez, has left the club on a free transfer to join Inter Milan on a three-year deal. Sanchez, who has been on loan at Inter since August 2019, will receive a small pay-off from United after agreeing to waive the final two years of his £560k-per-week contract.

Incidentally, that is also the number worn by Jadon Sancho, who United are keen to sign from Borussia Dortmund this summer. Speaking in August 2019 upon his move to Inter Milan, Sky Sports’ Gary Neville was brutal in his assessment of the Chilean’s time at Old Trafford… “I thought he would be a forward who would play all across the line, who scored goals and was tenacious, but Sanchez has been an absolute disaster. I have no idea what’s happened to him. There must be two of them. No one could have foreseen the disaster that was about to happen with Alexis Sanchez. “I don’t know what happened to him. That wasn’t the Alexis Sanchez that played at Arsenal. He wasn’t old when United signed him. He’d been proven. We knew United would get only a couple of years out of him, I know his wages were massive. read also:Man Utd agree deal with Inter for Alexis Sanchez “But my point is, no one could have foreseen how bad he would be for the club.” ‘This was no slow decline.

Connersville, IN—The Historic Whitewater Valley Railroad’s annual training classes will be held beginning Saturday at the South Connersville Yard Complex located at 300 South Eastern Avenue, Connersville, Indiana. This course is free and is open to the public and does not require membership to the non-profit Whitewater Valley Railroad.
Press Association “We saw that last year. We started last year brilliantly, after the first two games we had six points, had scored eight goals and conceded none, but after seven games we had eight points. “Suddenly you can win two or three, but suddenly you can lose two, three or four in a row so we just take it easy and see what happens on Sunday.” Both Swansea and Spurs enjoyed handsome European wins in midweek, with Spurs also racking up five goals against Dinamo Tblisi. But Laudrup has cautioned against expecting another glut of goals. “Could it be 5-5? I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t think you can look at it like that. “A game ending 5-5 would be good for the fans but it will be a tough game. “Tottenham already had a very good squad last season but they have bought some very good quality players in Roberto Soldado and Paulinho. “They will, as far as I understand, lose their top player so they may be a different team this season.” Michael Laudrup feels it is far too early to describe his Swansea side as being under pressure to get a result when they face Tottenham on Sunday. Swansea may have enjoyed an excellent start to their Europa League campaign – they are all but guaranteed a group stage spot after their 5-1 hammering of Petrolul Ploiesti – but their Premier League campaign kicked off with a 4-1 hiding at the hands of reigning champions Manchester United. Tottenham may be without Gareth Bale, but Sunday’s trip to White Hart Lane is another demanding assignment for the Swans as they look to handle the duel demands of continental and domestic competition. The Welsh club have been handed a testing early-season run with games against West Brom, Liverpool and Arsenal looming on the horizon before the end of September. But Laudrup does not believe Swansea will be up against it if they lose in north London. “We already knew this is how it would be,” he said. “I am not complaining about the fixtures. We knew we had to play everybody. It’s not like a cup which you can say they are certain teams you would prefer to face. “We have to play the other 19 teams sooner or later and we knew when we saw Manchester United and Tottenham come out as our first two games and Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal as our first three home games. “We know it is very difficult but we have to play them all and I think we are confident. We know what we can do. “We know when we play the big teams it will be very difficult. It is not in these games that we will get our points to reach our targets. “I know in the beginning if you lose people can say you could be in trouble if you lose this game or that game, but the season is 38 games. It’s a long way, a long road.

London: The come from behind win against New Zealand has made Australia look like the all-conquering team of the past, says former captain Allan Border. Australia were under the pump against New Zealand after opting to bat at Lord’s here on Saturday, losing their heavyweights Aaron Finch, David Warner and Steve Smith cheaply to be 46 for three. Yet, like the Australian teams of the past, they found a way to bounce back to post a challenging 243 for nine before Mitchell Starc ran through the New Zealand batting to fashion an 86-run win. Even Trent Boult’s brilliant hat-trick did not do it for the Black Caps.”After a gentle start, Australia now look the real deal and the win against New Zealand has brought back that old familiar feeling that often leads to a World Cup trophy,” Border wrote in his column for the ICC.”This was a very impressive win because they did it the hard way. In this tournament, they have relied on Aaron Finch, David Warner and Steve Smith at the top of the order to get runs but all of a sudden, they had to dig deep – and to come through that is a very good sign.”He was all praise wicketkeeper batsman Alex Carey who made 71 off 72 balls in trying conditions.”He looked like he was batting on a different surface to everyone else out there. He struck the ball beautifully on both sides of the wicket and hit some nice cover drives, which we did not see much of from anyone else. “He is without doubt my man of the match because, without him, Australia would not have got 150.He has turned a few heads in this tournament with his reliable performances. There were a lot of doubts before, critics asking if he was truly our best option. Should we have gone for Matty Wade or Tim Paine? “But he has grown in confidence and it has been nice to watch.” Another stand-out performer was Starc who produced another match-winning performance. “You would have to pick him in your all-time Australia ODI side because of what he does in the big games. There are lots of other options out there but in the big games, he stands up. “He has come to the boil at the perfect time and Australia now look a strong contender to win it, which is unbelievable when you look at how they were struggling six months ago.” Australia might be Border’s favourites to go all the way but he is not writing off India and England.”I am really confident with where this team is at. India and England demand massive respect too and you can never count your chickens – but that old familiar feeling is definitely back,” he added.

(BBC) – Serena Williams feels her level was closer to a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam at this U.S. Open than it was in her four most recent major final defeats.The American was outstanding in the opening set of her semi-final against Victoria Azarenka before losing 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 at Flushing Meadows in New York.She needed a medical timeout for an Achilles injury in the deciding set.“I feel like other times I’ve been close, I could have done better. Today I felt like I gave a lot,” she said.Williams, who turns 39 later this month, has not won a major since the 2017 Australian Open when she was eight weeks pregnant.Since returning to the tour after having her daughter Olympia she has lost four Grand Slam finals – Wimbledon and the U,S, Open in 2018 and 2019.She lost those finals in straight sets, seemingly burdened by the weight of expectation at the final hurdle having put in some dominant performances in previous rounds.And she was denied another chance to equal Australian Margaret Court’s long-standing record as 31-year-old Azarenka impressively fought back to reach her first major final in seven years.However, Williams will have another attempt at the French Open later this month after confirming she will “definitely” play on the Roland Garros clay.Two-time Australian Open champion Azarenka, meanwhile, has a more immediate opportunity of her own to win another Grand Slam title when she plays Japanese fourth seed Naomi Osaka in yesterday’s final.The Belarusian was one of Williams’ great rivals in the first part of the last decade before also taking time off to have a child.Azarenka gave birth to son Leo in December 2017 and her career continued to be stalled by a lengthy custody battle.“I don’t know how she stayed positive, to be honest,” Williams said.“That’s a good lesson for all of us. No matter what, you just got to keep going. Hopefully she keeps living her dream.”
