Statement by WADA President John Fahey Following Coach Trevor Graham's Ban

"The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is satisfied with the decision announced on July 15 by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to impose a lifetime ban on track and field coach Trevor Graham. This decision is a strong reminder that those who may assist, encourage or force athletes to cheat will be pursued, and that evidence garnered from law enforcement investigations may be used by anti-doping authorities to sanction athletes, coaches and other individuals involved in sport with sporting sanctions under the World Anti-Doping Code."
