Russia gave WADA four years ban on doping scandal



The WADA Compliance Evaluation Committee (CRC) had proposed several sanctions for the Russian Anti-Doping Agency's (RUSADA) failure to cooperate fully during probation in Russian sport.

WADA's Executive Committee decided to uphold the recommendations at a meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland on Monday.

RUSADA now has 21 days to accept the decision or send the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

If the decision is given, the decision means that Russia will not be able to compete in next year's Tokyo Olympic Games. Soccer's world governing body FIFA did not immediately respond to CNN's request for confirmation of how WADA's ruling could potentially affect Russia's involvement in the qualification process in 2022.

WADA's penalty applies to discrepancies in data obtained by WADA in January 2019 from the Moscow Laboratory at the center of the McLaren Report 2016, which revealed a widespread and sophisticated state-sponsored sports doping network.

RUS originally considered incompatible after the release of the McLaren report in 2016. [19659002] On behalf of WADA, the report found that the Russian state conspired with athletes and sporting officials to launch a doping program that was unique in its scope and ambition.

The findings led to sanctions, including the absence of any Russian teams at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, with certain qualified athletes being forced to compete under a neutral flag.

The latest ban leaves the door open for Russian athletes, who can prove they are not ashamed of the scandal, to compete as neutral athletes.
