WADA president: Alberto Contador is a ‘cheat

Updated: February 7, 2012

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The president of the World Anti-Doping Agency says Alberto Contador should be considered a “cheat” now that he has been found guilty of doping and stripped of his 2010 Tour de France title.

WADA President John Fahey says anyone found with a banned substance in their body “is a cheat. It is as simple as that.”

Fahey, who was speaking Tuesday in an interview with The Associated Press, says that Monday’s ruling against Contador by the Court of Arbitration for Sport was “clear.”

The Swiss sports court held the Spaniard responsible for his positive doping test at the 2010 Tour, which he won. It rejected Contador’s claim that eating a contaminated steak caused his failed test.
