    Drug cheats face a doubling of their bans for first offences to four years under a strict new code to be agreed at the World Conference on Doping in Sport in South Africa which is set to kick off on Tuesday (November 12). Tougher sanctions, more vigorous testing and a drive to catch the cheats and those who aid them, is due to be ratified by stakeholders, including the International Olympic Committee (IOC), sports federations and national doping organisations.
