LONDON (AP) -- Former Olympic hurdles great Edwin Moses is a candidate to become the next president of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The IOC says the two-time Olympic gold medallist in the 400-metre hurdles submitted his candidacy last week.

Moses is the third candidate to enter the race, joining IOC vice president Craig Reedie of Britain and former IOC medical director Patrick Schamasch of France.

Moses, who won gold medals in 1976 and 1984, has been active in the anti-doping movement since retiring from competition. He is currently chairman of the US Anti-Doping Agency.

The IOC executive board will put forward one candidate for the WADA presidency at its meeting in Moscow on August 9.

It's up to the Olympic movement to nominate a successor to former Australian minister John Fahey, who steps down in November after six years in the job.
