WADA slammed for 'wimpy' response to China doping revelations which claim Sonia O'Sullivan was denied World medals

The former head of Jamaica’s Anti-Doping Commission has criticised the World Anti-Doping Agency for their slow reaction to investigating doping in China.

On Sunday, Chinese doctor Xue Yinxian alleged 10,000 Chinese athletes used banned substances in the 1980s and ’90s, including every medal winner in every major championship.

On Twitter, Renee-Anne Shirley wrote: “Dr Xue made these accusations in 2012 but Wada did nothing about them then. Guess they only move when ARD TV does a documentary?”

Shirley also criticised the International Association of Athletics Federations, for what she called its “wimpy” response to a letter published in February from Chinese athletes linked to the controversial track coach Ma Junren, whose athletes broke 66 national and world records, which said they had been forced to take performance-enhancing drugs.

Ireland’s Sonia O’Sullivan finished second and fourth in the 1,500m and 3,000m behind Chinese athletes at the 1993 World Championships.
