International Association of Athletics Federations President Lamine Diack, right, speaks with a fellow International Olympic Committee member during the 128th IOC session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Monday, Aug. 3, 2015. Three weeks before the world championships, athletics was thrown into turmoil by new accusations of widespread doping and experts denouncing an anti-doping system compromised by leniency. German broadcaster ARD and The Sunday Times newspaper in Britain said they obtained access to the results of 12,000 blood tests from 5,000 athletes. The files came from the database of the IAAF and were leaked by a whistleblower, according to the reports. The IAAF said it was aware of "serious allegations made against the integrity and competence of its anti-doping program." (AP Photo/Joshua Paul)LONDON (AP) — Sebastian Coe tells The Associated Press that the latest doping allegations leveled against track and field are "a declaration of war."
