The former president of the World Anti-Doping Agency says Jamaica will be on everyone's radar for dope testing in the future. Richard Pound, who stepped down as WADA president in 2007, said conducting tests in Jamaica can be difficult. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER WORLD ANTI-DOPING AGENCY PRESIDENT CHIEF RICHARD POUND SAYING ON WHETHER HE IS HAPPY WITH THE WAY JAMAICA TEST THEIR ATHLETES: "No, they are one of the groups that are hard to test, it is to get in and find them and so forth, I think they can expect, with the extraordinary results that they have had, that they will be on everybody's radar." Also a former vice president of the IOC, Pound said the doping measures in London are effective. (SOUNDBITE) (English) POUND SAYING ON OLYMPIC DRUG TESTING: "The drug testing that will be done here is first class. We have got a good laboratory and some of the best scientists in the world. I would not expect many cases at the Olympics because if you test positive here you fail not a drugs test but an IQ test." London 2012 is heading into its last day of the games. The next Olympic will be held in Brazil in 2016.
