WADA has documented more than 1,000 Russian doping cases across dozens of sports, most notably at the Winter Olympics that Russia hosted in Sochi in 2014.

The World Anti-Doping Agency duly obliged, with president Sir Craig Reedie this week indicating the blood and urine samples of athletes could be retested.

During the conference, the incumbent Polish Minister of Sport and Tourism Witold Banka will be elected as the new president of WADA, and former Chinese speed skating world champion Yang Yang as the vice-president. These words which I used at the 4th World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg 2013, are still true today.

The International Olympic Committee has pledged $10 million to fight doping in sports, part of which would go toward storing samples from pre-Olympics testing for 10 years.

"That will be one of the biggest tasks: to convince the big companies to join the Olympic anti-doping solidarity fund", he added. "And we need the same kind" of support. It has reanalyzed hundreds of samples from the Beijing and London Games that have resulted in at least 123 positive tests.

Olympic chief Thomas Bach on Tuesday urged governments to do more to help "drain the doping swamp" by going after the entourage of a cheating athlete.

"Kenya's view of doping resonates with the position of the International Olympic Committee that any successful anti-doping regime must clean up the entire sports ecosystem to guarantee fair play", the CS said.

"What they (WADA) would have learned is that we left no stone unturned (in relation to any athletes)", he said.

Salazar was found guilty of doping violations last month and banned for four years following an investigation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.

"We have been working with Usada on their investigation into the Nike Oregon Project and will work with Wada on their investigation if there is any evidence that relates to athletes or athlete support personnel under our jurisdiction", Sapstead said in a statement released to BBC Sport.

He'll be under the microscope, as WADA deals with a continuing case involving Russian cheating. WADA is investigating why data from the Moscow testing laboratory was manipulated.
