WADA to announce new report on Russia doping investigation

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to publish a new McLaren report on the Russia doping investigation on Friday
McLaren report: More than 1,000 Russian athletes involved in state-sponsored doping

The first McLaren report discovered that Russia has run a systemic and state-sponsored doping program for several years, including in the run-up to the Sochi Games. The report caused ban of hundreds of Russian athletes from 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The WADA investigation is examining allegations made by the former head of Russia’s national anti-doping laboratory Grigory Rodchenkov.

The Russian team was also banned from competing in the Rio 2016 Paralympics, following the scandal.

The new report has been published on Friday.

It should be recalled that WADA has criticised Russia for appointing former Russian athlete Yelena Isinbayeva the head of the new Supervisory Board of the Russian anti-doping agency (RUSADA) without preliminary consultations with the head office.
