NEW YORK -- After Russias widespread violations at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, new World Anti-Doping Agency director general Olivier Niggli says an expanding investigations staff will be on the lookout for state-sponsored cheating in other nations.It has happened in one country. I think it would be naive to think its the only country, he said Thursday during an interview at The Associated Press. We have to have our eyes really open and also make sure we act on intelligence and information we might get.A report commissioned for WADA found state-directed manipulation of drug-testing results at the Moscow anti-doping lab from at least 2011 through the summer of 2013 and said Russias Ministry of Sport advised the laboratory which findings to cover up.More than 100 Russian athletes, including all but one member of the track and field team, were banned from this years Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Niggli, a 46-year-old Swiss lawyer who replaced David Howman on July 1, said WADA will have conversations with FIFA about testing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.Its still sufficiently far away to hope that things will have changed and improved in Russia, Niggli said. Its very important that we be able to work with the Russians to try to set up a system that is called compliant and that will provide some safeguards so that everybody regains confidence in what is going on there.Since the manipulation of Russian drug tests became public, the sample bottle used to collect urine has been improved. The IOC also has proposed that WADA take responsibility for drug testing across sports or establish an affiliate agency to do so.Niggli rejected a suggestion by Russian Vladimir Putin that athletes with therapeutic use exemptions be excluded from major competitions.I dont think its meaningful. I think every human being has a right of being treated for medical conditions, he said.Niggli was hired as WADAs legal director in 2002, added the title of finance director two years later, then left for a law firm in 2011. He returned to WADA two years ago as chief operating officer.He said WADA accepts the Court of Arbitration for Sports decision to cut the suspension of Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova from two years to 15 months. A winner of all four Grand Slam tournaments, Sharapova tested positive for the heart drug meldonium, added to the banned list this year.It was slightly surprising that at that level she wouldnt get warned properly by her entourage, he said.WADA was set up by the IOC in 1999 and has a $30 million budget for next year. It already has doubled the size of its unit that scrutinizes possible violations, hiring former Interpol agent Guenter Younger as its new director of intelligence and investigations. Four additional employees likely will be added to the unit by next year.Whistle-blower is another obviously important thing, Niggli said. Even if we have an investigation department, were not the police, were not law enforcement. We have no legal means of compelling people to talk to us. Its only if people want to bring us information that I will get it.WADA believes maintaining biological passports for all athletes subject to testing will increase obstacles to doping. The passports establish baseline levels for each athlete, used for comparing with testing results.Makes it a lot more complicated for a chemist to get an edge, Niggli said. You would see variations which would be totally abnormal there and would trigger some reaction.He praised Major League Baseball, the NFL and the NHL for their anti-doping programs, which are subject to labor laws and negotiated with their unions. Among the major U.S. professional leagues, there is one WADA is not working with.We dont have too much relationship at the moment with the NBA, he said.Cheap Authentic Ray Ban Sunglasses .

All in all, the Red Sox couldnt have found a better way to end a whirlwind weekend. Lester allowed four hits over seven innings, Ortiz went 4 for 4 with his 20th home run and Boston used a 5-0 victory Sunday to earn their first series win over the Orioles in two years. As a bonus, the Red Sox took a half-game lead over Tampa Bay, which lost to the Yankees. Boston stood atop the division for 60 straight days before a defeat Friday night ended the run. The Rays visit Fenway Park for a makeup game Monday night. Mike Napoli had two doubles and an RBI for the Red Sox, who took two of three from the third-place Orioles. Boston had lost six straight series to Baltimore since a four-game sweep in July 2011. All four hits against Lester (10-6) were singles. He struck out eight, walked two and did not allow a runner past second base. The right-hander improved his lifetime record against the Orioles to 15-2, although he lost his previous two decisions against them. "Theyve always been a tough team to pitch against," Lester said of the Orioles. "Theyve always had a great offensive lineup. Our guys did a good job today with (Orioles starter Jason) Hammel, making him work and giving me a couple of runs, giving me a cushion to work with." On Saturday night, Ortiz shattered the casing of two dugout phones with his bat after being ejected from the game. On Sunday, he opted to take his swings at Baltimore pitchers. Asked if he took a different attitude into the game because of his outburst on Saturday, Ortiz replied, "No, no. Its the opposite. Youve got to make sure you dont get out of your game. Sometime when you get excited it gets worse. Just go out there like I normally do." Ortiz hit a two-run shot off Hammel (7-8) in the third inning to put Boston up 3-0. Big Papi has 12 consecutive 20-homer seasons, the last 11 with Boston. Only Ted Williams, with 16, had more as a member of the Red Sox. Ortiz also had three singles, tying his season high in hits. "After taking it out on the phone ... he took it out on the baseball todaay," manager John Farrell said.dddddddddddd "It was good to see." With Ortiz and Lester leading the way, the Red Sox got a coveted victory. "Especially in this situation where we are fighting with Tampa for first place," Ortiz said. "Its something we need." Hammel allowed three runs, six hits and a career-high tying five walks in 5 1-3 innings. The right-hander is 0-6 with a 5.63 ERA in 10 starts since May 27. "Its obviously very frustrating. I am not doing what I know I can do," Hammel said. "But it could be a lot worse. If I was in my younger years, I would get myself into trouble like that, then you could really implode. So thats not happening." Baltimores Chris Davis went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. He has not added to his major league-leading home run total of 37 since July 14, and he has struck out in 22 straight games -- including 10 in the last four games. It was only the fourth time this season the Orioles have been blanked, tied with Tampa Bay for lowest in the AL. Blame it on Lester, their old nemesis. "You know what youre going to get with him," leadoff hitter Nick Markakis said. "You know its going to be a battle. He wasnt locating his pitches the best Ive seen him. But he was still effective, especially with guys on base." Hammel needed 27 pitches to get out of a rocky first inning. After a two-out RBI double by Napoli put runners at second and third, Mike Carp struck out. Ortiz made it 3-0 in the third with an opposite-field drive to left following a single by Jacoby Ellsbury. In the eighth, Ortiz singled and Napoli doubled before Jarrod Saltalamacchi hit a two-run single. NOTES: In the makeup from Thursdays rainout, Red Sox LHP Felix Doubront (7-4) will face Rays LHP David Price (5-5). ... Baltimore recalled OF L.J.
