LONDON, September 27, 2012
Dr Edwin Moses, the Chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy, is to take an even more significant role in the fight against drug cheats in sport.
Double Olympic gold medal winner Moses has been named Chair of the Board of Directors of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), succeeding Dr Richard Cohen.
Moses has been an active supporter of anti-doping efforts for more than 20 years. He said: “The use of dangerous performance-enhancing drugs is one of the most important issues facing sport today and our mission at USADA to ensure that all clean athletes can compete on a level playing field is vitally important not only for this generation of athletes but all the generations to come.
“I have been honoured to serve on the USADA Board since 2010 and as Chair I look forward to continuing to support USADA’s staff in successfully fulfilling our mission through our commitment to the highest standards of excellence.”
