Ban Ki-moon, the newly elected chief of the ethics body at the International Olympic Committee, said Sunday he feels a heavy responsibility taking the job, but will try to improve the transparency of the organization.

"We've also noted as well as a high incidence of ADRVs (Anti-Doping Rule Violation) in global level athletes, there are some countries with a very high level of national level athletes with ADRVs and we want to ensure steps are taken in those countries, and if not a there will be a reduction in their ability to participate in the Games".
