Witold Banka knows that he was not the favorite candidate of the athletes. Nevertheless, the former Polish Minister of Sport has prevailed in the race for the presidency of the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA. The athletes had, as almost always at the WADA, at the World Anti-Doping Congress this week in Katowice no right to co-determination. Sport and world politics alternately occupy the top position. This time, it was the turn of the politicians who proposed one of their own with Banka, even though the 35-year-old has barely emerged as an antidoping fighter.

Banka knows that most athletes would have preferred to see Linda Helleland at WADA top. Although the Norwegian is also a politician, she was also Vice President of WADA and, as such, one of the most consistent anti-doping fighters. This eventually made her indestructible, since she had accused many colleagues of not having enough to protect herself.
