    No Holds Barred: Olympic Doping Ban Dispute, David Howman Teleconference, Combat Sports and Doping 

    On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the teleconference recorded Monday, November 21, of David Howman, the director general of WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency), discusses the current dispute over doping bans between WADA and the British Olympic Association (BOA), and comments on the weak anti-doping measures in the combat sports.

    WADA held the teleconference to discuss with the international media their Executive Committee and Foundation Board meetings, which were held in Montreal on November 19 and 20. At these, WADA decided that they would impose a budget freeze for 2012 because of the continuing bad economic conditions. They also ruled that the BOA was "non-compliant" with the WADA code because the BOA is trying to impose a lifetime ban on any athlete who was suspended for six months or more for drug offenses. There is no doubt this dispute will end up in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

    On the teleconference, David Howman also explained that discussions between organizations running mixed martial arts and boxing in the U.S., and USADA, the American arm of WADA, have "not been very successful to date", although he hopes that public pressure will play a role on the issue of anti-doping policy.
