NEW YORK, November 10. /TASS/. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has reported that the review of the results of the investigation conducted by its independent commission against the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) by the organization’s executive committee is scheduled for November 18 and will take place in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
WADA’s independent commission has released a report on Monday, it which it recommended to suspend Russian athletes from the competitions under the auspices of the International Association of Athletics Federations as well as to strip the Moscow anti-doping laboratory of its license and dismiss its director Grigory Rodchenkov because of numerous violations of the anti-doping rules.
In December 2014 German TV Channel ARD aired a series of documentaries on alleged doping abuse in Russian sports. The ARD’s two-part documentary titled Geheimsache Doping (Secret Doping Case) claimed that Russian athletes systematically took banned substances on instructions from their coaches.
The Sunday Times too alleged that Russian athletes suspected of doping abuse had won 80% of medals for their country at the Olympic Games and World Championships between 2001 and 2012.
