Tygart calls for more independent tests



United States Anti-Doping Agency president Travis Tygart called for a more efficient global doping control system on Wednesday during a visit to Germany.

Tygart, whose USADA body uncovered the doping schemes of cyclist Lance Armstrong, said at a meeting of the German parliament's sports commission that more independent agencies are needed to conduct tests.

"We want to protect the current athletes for a clean sport in the future," Tygart said.

Tygart said the probes against Armstrong and fellow cyclists Flody Landis and Tyler Hamilton showed that the fight against doping can result in success.
