Australia’s four-times Olympic race walk medallist Jared Tallent has declared the governance of the World Anti-Doping Agency, which last month controversially decided to reinstate the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), as “not fit for purpose”.

Sport Ireland and the Athletes’ Commission of the Olympic Federation of Ireland (OFI) have also joined the international call for an independent investigation into alleged bullying by a number of WADA Executive Committee members at the meeting in the Seychelles where the Compliance Review Committee’s fateful vote occurred last month
