Bubka wants 'faster, more efficient' system against doping

LONDON (AP) -- IAAF presidential candidate Sergey Bubka says athletics must improve the speed and transparency in the system it uses to identify and sanction dopers.

Bubka says the structure "is too complex and takes too long," and "to become faster and more efficient we need to deploy the best research and science to ... keep a step ahead of the dopers."

His comments come after German and British media reported leaked files from the IAAF containing suspicious blood tests among 12,000 samples involving 5,000 athletes.

Bubka, a vice-president at the IAAF, is standing against Sebastian Coe to replace Lamine Diack as president at an election in Beijing in two weeks.
