British Olympic chief to propose law allowing police to search athletes village for performance-enhancing drugs
Colin Moynihan, the head of Britain's Olympic body, says he is proposing a law that would allow police to search the athletes village for performance-enhancing drugs at the 2012 London Games.
Moynihan, chairman of the British Olympic Assn., says he plans to submit a draft bill in the House of Lords. He is a member of the House of Lords as a Conservative peer.
Moynihan says he wants to bring Britain in line with other countries that have anti-doping laws. The International Olympic Committee wants all Olympic host countries to have anti-doping legislation in place for the games.
