Russian Federation anti-doping body to 'continue its work' after WADA ban

For representational purposes

Kuwait, Equatorial Guinea and Mauritius had also been found non-compliant by the Board, it added.

WADA's Foundation Board, meeting in Seoul, came to the decision after its Compliance Review Committee recommended that Russia's anti-doping body, RUSADA, "should not be reinstated".

The IOC has said it will decide on Russia's participation at the Pyeongchang Winter Games in South Korea during its executive board meeting being held from December 5-7.

Russian Federation was declared "non-compliant" by WADA following a report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren alleged institutionalised doping culminating at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The independent McLaren report detailed a state-sponsored doping conspiracy from 2011 to 2015, including the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, where the hosts topped the medals table.

"It is a sensitive issue, and we are waiting for IOC's official decision for now".

Google Faces Antitrust Investigation in Missouri
Asked whether his Senate bid influenced his decision to investigate, he said the goal is to "protect the people of Missouri". He says the company hasn't yet received an investigative subpoena issued by Hawley's office.

The finding throws into doubt whether Russian athletes will be allowed to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February.

"Western manipulators are abusing their influence over global organizations and playing on our nerves" by leaving Russian participation in doubt, Mikhail Degtyarev, head of the sports, youth and tourism committee in the Duma, said, according to the Sport Express newspaper. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)'s decision not to reinstate Russian anti-doping agency RUSADA was expected and had been nearly announced beforehand, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS.

The chief of the United States anti-doping agency described the latest development as "another sad moment in this entire sordid affair".

We will remind, earlier on the official WADA website appeared in the results of the meeting of the leadership of the Agency, which accepted the fate of RUSADA.

The report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren accused Russia's secret service and sports ministry of orchestrating a plot that included using a "mousehole" to replace dirty samples at the Sochi doping laboratory.

"RUSADA performs all functions within the World Anti-Doping Code", he said.
