Russia awaits ban for doping

UNB, Lausanne

The World Anti-Doping Agency began a meeting yesterday to judge the latest allegations of Russian corruption in international sports. There is evidence to show that Russian authorities tampered with a Moscow laboratory database to hide hundreds of potential doping cases and falsely shift the blame onto whistleblowers, WADA investigators and the International Olympic Committee said last month. Russia will likely again avoid a blanket ban from the Olympics, but the country faces having its flag and anthem banned at next year's Tokyo Games and at other major sporting events for the next four years.

Other four-year sanctions proposed by a WADA panel include excluding Russian athletes from major events unless they are not implicated in the evidence and barring the country from hosting, bidding for, or being awarded championships by world sports bodies. “Flagrant manipulation” of the Moscow lab data was “an insult to the sporting movement worldwide,” the IOC said last month. Handing over a clean database to WADA was a key requirement for Russia to help bring closure to a scandal that has tainted the Olympics over the last decade.

Although the IOC has called for the strongest possible sanctions, it wants those sanctions directed at Russian state authorities rather than athletes or Olympic officials.
