Anti-doping expert hits out at IAAF
London: The IAAF has been accused of trying to "muddy the waters" in the ongoing doping scandal by one of the experts at the centre of the case.
Michael Ashenden, one of two anti-doping experts enlisted by the Sunday Times to analyse leaked data belonging to the IAAF, has issued a response to the world governing body's statement, released on Friday, in which it insisted it had used "every tool available to it to catch blood dopers in athletics and with considerable success".
Ashenden claimed the 38-page document, released ahead of Lord Coe's expected appearance before Parliament's Culture Media and Sport Select Committee next week, failed to answer the key questions.
"The IAAF has released a statement that comprises 25 pages of hair-splitting, plus 13 pages of appendices," his statement said.
