As anti-doping body and athletes bicker, have the cheats won?

(CNN)These are testing times in the fight to keep sport clean, with a number of leading athletes seemingly pitted against the organization that’s responsible for looking after anti-doping.

On Wednesday an emergency anti-doping summit in Washington called for reform of the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) because “athletes and sports fans across the globe” had lost confidence in the organization in the wake of the Russian doping scandal. Two days earlier, leaders of 18 national anti-doping organizations had also called for WADA reform.
That’s drawn a withering response from WADA president Sir Craig Reedie, who suggested the United States anti-doping agency (USADA) should address its own weaknesses.
