GENEVA, July 18. /TASS/. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will take toughest sanctions against organizations or individuals involved in covering doping use, IOC President Tomas Bach said on Monday.
"The findings of the [WADA] report show a shocking and unprecedented attack on the integrity of sport and on the Olympic Games. Therefore, the IOC will not hesitate to take the toughest sanctions available against any individual or organization implicated," Bach was quoted as saying in a statement on the IOC website.
"The IOC will now carefully study the complex and detailed allegations, in particular with regard to the Russian Ministry of Sport," the statement says.
"In the immediate short term, the IOC Executive Board (EB) will convene in a telephone conference tomorrow to take its first decisions, which may include provisional measures and sanctions with regard to the Olympic Games Rio 2016," IOC said.
Earlier on Monday the World Anti-Doping Agency released a report accusing Russia of having a state-sponsored doping system.
