Polish sports minister Witold Banka, a 34-year-old former athlete, was chosen Tuesday in Montreal by state representatives at the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to become the next president of the body, announced the States in a statement. This choice will be endorsed at a WADA Foundation Board on 7 November in Katowice.
From the Polish Conservative government, Witold Banka will succeed Britain's Craig Reedie, elected in 2014 from the ranks of the Olympic Movement, the other pillar of WADA. Since its birth in 1999, WADA is subject to a rotation principle of its presidency between the Olympic movement (IOC and international federations) and governments.
