COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Former track great Edwin Moses has been voted chair of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's board of directors.

USADA said Wednesday that Moses was selected to fill the chair position at the Sept. 13 board meeting. Moses succeeds founding board member Dr. Richard Cohen, who is rotating off the board because of term limits.

"The use of dangerous performance-enhancing drugs is one of the most important issues facing sport today, and our mission at USADA, to ensure that all clean athletes can compete on a level playing field, is vitally important not only for this generation of athletes but all the generations to come," Moses said in a statement.

"I have been honored to serve on the USADA board since 2010 and as chair I look forward to continuing to support USADA's staff in successfully fulfilling our mission through our commitment to the highest standards of excellence."

Founding board member Dr. Jean Fourcroy and former swimmer Annette Salmeen also are leaving the board because of term limits. Dr. Cheri Blauwet, Robert Raskopf and Dr. Ken Wright are joining the board.
