FILE - In this May 18, 2018, file photo, Craig Reedie, head of the World Anti-Doping Agency, speaks to the Montreal Council on Foreign Relations in Montreal. At the same time WADA announced changes to its governance structure, the agency's former lead investigator, Jack Robertson, wrote an op-ed piece arguing its leaders should be replaced, and said the decision to reinstate Russia's suspended anti-doping agency came via a ``cowardly’’ process that betrayed clean athletes. WADA, in a statement to the BBC, dismissed Robertson's analysis as "old and baseless allegations" that are part of a politically motivated campaign against the agency and Reedie.
