The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) met over the weekend to draft a new global policy that will see suspensions doubled for serious cases of doping.

WADA’s executive committee and board met separately in Montreal, Canada, to review a third draft of the 2015 World Anti-Doping code ahead of its approval conference on November 12-15 this year in Johannesburg.
