WADA: Russia still 'non-compliant' with anti-doping code

WADA: Russia still 'non-compliant' with anti-doping code

"At the summit of the International Olympic Committee, which was held recently, on October 28, it was stressed that the results of the forensic examination from the McLaren report cannot be used to take individual legal measures, since the technique used by Professor McLaren was not developed to determine individual violations of anti-doping rules", Zhukov told the meeting in the South Korean capital.

Russia's anti-doping body remains non-compliant with the global code, putting more pressure on the worldwide Olympic Committee to ban the country from next year's Winter Games in PyeongChang. He said that the findings from the McLaren report are inconsistent and controversial.

The World Anti-Doping Agency on Thursday refused to reinstate Russia's suspended anti-doping agency, RUSADA, saying the country had still not fulfilled two key requirements.

WADA's decision to maintain suspension of Russian Federation was taken in the Foundation Board meeting in Seoul, where it approved the recommendation of Compliance Review Committee to not reinstate the RUSADA, reported Sports24. We regret that RUSADA is not yet compliant. "Such a requirement can not, and should not serve as an obstacle to the full compliance of RUSADA".

USADA chief executive Travis Tygart described the latest development as "another sad moment in this entire sordid affair".

"There was really no other outcome, based on their unwillingness to admit what the flood of evidence proves", said Travis Tygart, USADA chief executive. The IOC is expected to issue rulings on Russia's participation at the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea in December.

An appeal from the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) to be reinstated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was turned down here today.

Nineteen Russian athletes were cleared to compete as neutral athletes at the Rio Olympics previous year after undergoing further doping checks following the IOC's decision not to impose a blanket ban.

Two militants who escaped from J&K encounter arrested
A photograph of the boy brandishing an assault rifle at a sports stadium in the south Kashmir town had gone viral last week. The third, identified as Lashkar-e-Taiba militant Atta Mohammad Malik, is still hospitalised with critical injuries.

The upholding of the suspension raises the spectre of a possible ban from February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Russian President Vladimir Putin responded to news of the International Olympic Committee bans by claiming it is being manipulated by USA interests that want to use doping scandals to embarrass his government ahead of next year's elections in Russia.

"It seems to me now that it is important to have a measured position and reaction to WADA's decision".

"The road map with these conditions were exchanged with the Russians over 25 times in the last 18 months", Niggli.

Progress has been made and WADA has them the right to collect samples.

At a news conference in Moscow, RUSADA's Director General Yuri Ganus called the decision "lamentable".

Russia's ministry for sport has repeatedly denied the report's findings.
