LONDON (AP) - Britain's Olympic body has urged the World Anti-Doping Agency to introduce mandatory four-year bans for drug cheats as a minimum.

The current WADA code has a provision for four-year bans, but few federations opt to impose sanctions beyond the standard two years.

The British Olympic Association has submitted its proposed changes to WADA for the revision of the code which sets out drug-testing rules and sanctions across all sports and countries.

The BOA says in its submission that "athletes globally are calling for tougher sanctions to rid sport of those that choose to cheat. WADA should listen and act accordingly. "
