MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. A commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is starting its work in Moscow, Alexander Zhukov, the head of the Russian Olympic Committee, said on Thursday.
"The WADA anti-doping commission begins its work in Moscow today to determine which international organizations will fulfill the anti-doping control functions during the suspension of the work of the RUSADA (Russian Anti-Doping Agency) and our laboratory," Zhukov said.
An independent commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) delivered on November 9 a report on its investigation into doping abuse allegations involving Russian athletes. This recommended that the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) suspends all athletes of the All-Russia Athletics Federation from international competitions.
After that, the RUSADA and the Moscow anti-doping laboratory suspended their work.
On November 13, the IAAF council voted 22-1 to suspend the Russian federation, which could prevent Russian track and field athletes taking part in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics next year.
