On this Back Story the history of The Olympic Movements attempt to tackle drugs in sport, which led to the establishment of the World Anti Doping Authority, set up by Canadian Richard Pound.
Pound has just retired after decades of fighting the wide spread cheating in cycling, track and field, weight lifting, and in many other sports, not only at the Olympic level but across all sports and throughout nations around the world.
In conversation with Back Story's Dana Lewis, Pound talks about Russia's ban from the Olympics, cycling scandals, challenges with The U.S. threat to remove funding from WADA and he calls The U.S. potentially a rogue state.
Pound also is critical of the call to boycott China's winter Olympics saying it only penalizes other athletes from other countries.
