Athletics doping: Ban Russia from athletics, says report

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Russian track and field athletes could be banned from the 2016 Olympics after an independent report detailed an apparently state-sponsored doping program.

Commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and carried out by ex-president Dick Pound, the findings uncovered a “deeply rooted culture of cheating at all levels” within Russian athletics.

Asked if it amounted to state-sponsored doping, Pound told a news conference: “In the sense of consenting to it, there’s no other conclusion.”

The report says over 1,400 samples had been “intentionally and maliciously” destroyed by a Moscow laboratory even after a WADA plea to preserve them.

It even suggests the London 2012 Olympics — in which Russia won 24 gold medals — were “in a sense, sabotaged by the admission of athletes who should have not been competing.”

It criticizes an “inexplicable laissez-fair policy” adopted by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) — the sport’s governing body — and recommends five athletes and five coaches are issued with life bans.

The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) was not immediately available for comment.
