Ex-World Anti-Doping Agency President John Fahey dies at 75
John Fahey, a former president of the World Anti-Doping Agency and a key player in getting the 2000 Summer Olympics for Sydney, has died. New South Wales state government officials on Saturday confirmed Fahey's death, but gave no details. Fahey was premier of New South Wales from 1992 to 1995. Fahey retired from politics in 2001 shortly after being diagnosed with lung cancer, and had one of his lungs removed. When IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch announced Sydney as the winning bid, Fahey leapt out of his chair, turning to hug McGeoch.
