Floyd Landis is asking the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to remove Dick Pound as a member and to fire him as chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), according to the Mercury News, a San Jose, California, newspaper.

The newspaper claims to have a copy of the complaint which is to be sent to the UCI today. In it, Landis allegedly said that "Pound violated basic principles of the Olympic Charter by making derogatory remarks about Landis in the media," and that he further "has threatened to interfere in the proceedings and has the influence do to so."

The IOC's ethics commission rebuked Pound earlier this year for comments he had made concerning Lance Armstrong.
