Anti-doping leaders: IOC moves at summit 'not sufficient'

The Institute of National Anti-Doping Organizations called conclusions from this weekend's Olympic doping summit "not sufficient" to protect clean athletes.
The 59-member agency released a statement Sunday underlining weaknesses from the International Olympic Committee's anti-doping summit held the day before in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Key downsides, according to iNADO: the IOC's refusal to explicitly mention state-sponsored doping in Russia, despite two investigations that found it existed; and the IOC's framing of conclusions from one of those investigations as "mere allegations" and not "demonstrable facts."
At the IOC summit , sports leaders backed the World Anti-Doping Agency and said it must be bolstered, both financially and through beefed-up authority.
INADO CEO Joseph de Pencier applauded that but said "the IOC only comes part way to restoring its credibility for the clean athletes of the world."
