Edwin Moses, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in the 400-meter hurdles, is running again, this time to become the next president of the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Moses submitted his candidacy last week to become the third — and likely final — contender for the job, the International Olympic Committee said Tuesday.
Also in the running are IOC Vice President Craig Reedie of Britain and former IOC medical director Patrick Schamasch of France.
Moses, 57, has been chairman of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency since September.
Moses won 122 consecutive races — including 107 straight finals — from 1977 to 1987. His world record of 47.02 seconds stood from 1983 to 1992.
The IOC executive board will put forward one candidate for the WADA presidency at a meeting in Moscow on Aug. 9 on the eve of the world track and field championships. The nominee will be put up for formal election at the World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg from Nov. 12 to 15.
Reedie is considered the favorite.
