Will World Anti-Doping Agency Restore The Russian Anti-Doping Agency?



The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) at its meeting can still make a decision to restore the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) in rights. This information appeared one day after the Air Force told about the decision of the Compliance Committee (CRC) to recommend not to do so.

As reported by TASS with reference to the WADA statement, during the conference call on the eve of the meeting of the executive committee, the WADA compliance committee examined in detail the letter of the Ministry of Sport of Russia.

“The Committee was satisfied that this letter acknowledges the issues of doping in Russian sports and considers this to be the fulfilment of one of the remaining points of the roadmap for restoring RUSADA membership.

Regarding the second unaccomplished roadmap, the committee adopted a new commitment by the Russian side to provide WADA with access to the data and analyzes of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory through an independent expert. Such a step is sufficient for restoration if the executive committee establishes a clear time frame for such access, “the statement said.

As a result, WADA will consider the issue of restoring RUSAD at a meeting of the executive committee on September 20. RUSADA was found to be inadequate to the WADA code in late 2015 after a doping scandal involving Russian athletics. Since then, the decision to restore RUSADA has been postponed several times.
