    Sport is in a crisis friends... A drug-fuelled crisis.

    We've come through the Cycling and Lance Armstrong sagas... but now we lurch into a much bigger crisis. Athletics.

    Athletics of course, is the umbrella term for a ton of individual sports.

    This article is food for thought.

    The main worrying point being that the authorities were completely aware of the what was going on.

    Dick Pound will today submit his report that relate to IAAF’s ‘unbelievable’ corruption levels.

    This is the same Dick Pound who said that tennis has a problem.

    Corruption was "embedded" in the world athletics body IAAF and its leaders had to be aware of doping scandals in Russia and other countries, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has said in the second part of its report into doping and corruption in athletics.

    "Lord" Sebastian Coe has been identified as the man to clean up athletics.... but this guy was on the council when the cover-ups were happening. His superior Lamiane Diack is under police investigation for taking money to cover up failed Russian dope tests.

    Jo Pavey, the European 100m champion said the whole governing body should be disbanded and started again from scratch.

    It would appear Athletics has been riddled with doping, cover-ups and corruption.
