Part two of McLaren report to be published on December 9

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced a publication date of December 9 for part two of the McLaren report, while confirming Craig Reedie will serve a second term as president.

Part one of the report - the result of an investigation led by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren at WADA's request - was published in July and alleged doped Russian athletes were protected by a state-dictated system.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) subsequently laid down strict criteria for any Russians wishing to take part at Rio 2016, but stopped short of handing down a blanket ban to the country's competitors.

WADA has now confirmed further information relating to McLaren's investigation will be released next month.

Reedie, meanwhile, will stay on as president for a further three years, having been re-elected unopposed despite recent questions over his future with the agency.

The news was revealed on Sunday at WADA's foundation board meeting in Glasgow, where proposals to seek greater powers to impose sanctions were also announced.

"People have been saying to us that non-serious compliance needs non-serious sanctions - and that serious non-compliance needs serious sanctions," Reedie was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"There is quite clearly a feeling within the athlete community that this should be done. There is much work to be done. It will take massive consultation before we get to the finished article."
