MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. Russian agent Larisa Mikhaylova, accused of violating anti-doping rules by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), has no relation to Russia’s athletics governing body, Secretary General of the All-Russia Athletic Federation (ARAF) Mikhail Butov told TASS.
"Mikhaylova has no relation to the All-Russia Athletic Federation," Butov said.
A former elite Russian runner and the 1998 European Cup champion at 800 meters, Mikhaylova is the president of the L.M. Elite Runnung Club located in Hebron, Kentucky, that offers coaching and representation of runners for US competitions.
The Associated Press reported that Mikhaylova gave doping to Kenyan runners whose interests she represented. Three Kenyans who worked with the Russian agent have been caught doping since 2012.
The agent entered runners from her team into small US road races where the organizers cannot afford expensive drug-testing. The athletes took part in many races in exchange for a 15% cut for Mikhaylova, according to the report. She has denied ever giving tablets to athletes.
