Last quote by Craig Reedie

And the only way to do that is to make sure that the work that is being done by the two disciplinary commissions which have been funded – one is the institutionalised doping, the other the individual athletes – to get them together to finish their work as quickly as possible. We're a long, long way away from PyeongChang. We were four or five weeks away from the Rio Games. I think there is time to resolve that.feedback

The latest quote from Craig Reedie is: “As was quite clear before Rio, the World Anti-doping Agency does not have the power to ban Russia. That's not my call. Don't let anybody believe that it is my call. My guess – and it is an informed guess – is that there will be a very, very intense pre-Games testing programme before Pyeongchang. And the IOC, I'm sure, will be hugely supportive of that and that will allow them to make a reasoned decision. The task force is currently monitoring improvements in Russia but I think it would be difficult for IAAF to remove the suspension of Russian Athletics while Rusada is non-compliant.”. It comes from the Wada president wants quick call on Russia’s Winter Olympics participation article.

Craig Reedie quotes

They have political and economic difficulties. Inevitably, they will affect the games. There are challenges. I think they and we will have to get through it.feedback

I would like to think that things are quietening down and I hope they are. At the end of the day, I'm quite certain science will prevail and we'll come through this.feedback

It does actually remove the apparent conflict that one body is doing two things. I think it could well be helpful.feedback

If we did it, we would immediately be in court, we'd lose the case and that does not make any sense at all.feedback

The situation as WADA sees it is very clear, we do not have that authority. All we can do is declare somebody non-compliant with the code and it is up to our stakeholders to take advice.feedback

It won't be conflicting in any way because whatever the IAAF do will come under the overall heading of the world anti-doping code and WADA regulations. I think the best comparable example is that of the UCI, who have separated their promotion and development area… from its sanctioning body.feedback

I don't blame media for doing what they do; we have to react to it and I think we have reacted to it pretty sensibly, particularly in the creation of an independent commission to look at it. I think it will settle down. Frequently before any championship, there is a sort of seething hotbed of discussion and rumour and then the sport starts. I think it might well be that tomorrow morning's marathon will be quite wonderful.feedback

It's been a little bit of a firestorm; I think the World Anti-Doping Agency has been pretty clear in its views that the allegations were based on data that was questionable from a scientific and a legal point of view. Our scientists and experts have already started working down in Monaco and we await the results of those investigations with interest.feedback

They chose certainty in Beijing. But I don't think anybody would have believed that the result would have been that close.feedback

The progress we make will be reflected in the quality of the top athletes in the Olympic Games and other big events.feedback

It (the construction works) is hugely impressive. And the most important thing that any organising committee can do is to make sure that what is used to build the facilities will be environmentally-friendly, because that is probably more important that anything else. And the facilities are absolutely outstanding.feedback
