MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Reedie has been involved in administration of sports activities for years. He was a vice-president of the International Olympic Committee, the British Olympic Association and the International Badminton Federation. The official has been working in the anti-doping agency since its foundation in 1999 and has been its president since January 1, 2014.
"Sir Craig Reedie re-elected for a second term as WADA President by Foundation Board," WADA's press service posted on its Twitter account.
The re-election of Reedie comes after a massive doping scandal, which escalated in July, when WADA presented a report accusing Russia of running a state-wide doping program and urging the IOC to consider a blanket ban on the entire Russian team. The IOC instead opted to let individual sports federations decide on the matter.
In September, Fancy Bears hack team revealed WADA confidential medial records, including Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE). The athletes given TUEs include Rafael Nadal, Venus and Serena Williams and four-time Rio Olympics gold medalist Simone Biles, among others.
