Two-time Olympic 400-meter hurdles champion Edwin Moses submitted his candidacy for the World Anti-Doping Agency presidency last week, according to The Associated Press.

International Olympic Committee vice president Craig Reedie of Britain and former IOC medical director Patrick Schamasch are also in the running to replace Australian John Fahey, who is stepping down after six years in November.

The IOC executive board will submit one candidate for WADA president on Aug. 9, according to the AP.

Moses, who won 122 straight races from 1977 to 1987, is currently chairman of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and was elected the first chairman of the Laureus World Sports Academy.
