Poland’s Bańka re-elected as World Anti-Doping Agency head

Poland’s Witold Bańka was unanimously re-elected on Friday for a second three-year term as president of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) during a Foundation Board meeting in Montreal.

Speaking before his re-election, Mr Bańka said that while there has been much progress during his first term, there is plenty more that needs to be accomplished in the fight against doping.

“The anti-doping system still needs to be strengthened and this will require the full attention of the whole anti-doping community,” he told the meeting.

WADA vice president Yang Yang was also unanimously re-elected for a second three-year term. He and Mr Bańka will both begin their second terms on January 1, 2023.
