MOSCOW, July 25. /TASS/. The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) is going to submit a request for the names of Russian players mentioned in the recent report by the global anti-doping organization’s Independent Commission on alleged widespread doping abuse in Russian sports, IIHF President Rene Fasel told TASS Monday.
Asked whether the IIHF had plans for requesting the names of 14 Russian ice hockey players from last week’s report by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Independent Commission, Fasel said "this is for sure."
"We will do it…, at least if we find out they tested positive we will of course suspend them," Fasel said in an interview with TASS.
The WADA Independent Commission, chaired by Canadian law professor, Richard McLaren, released a report on July 18 on the results of its probe into the accusations of doping and manipulation of tests by Russian athletes and officials at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
According to the details, the commission claimed it had found evidence that Russia’s Sports Ministry and the Center for the Training of Russian National Teams and the Federal Security Service had covered up a doping program in Russian sports.
The McLaren report also stated that 14 Russian national ice hockey players had used banned performance-enhancing substances.
After a conference call by its executive board on July 24, the IOC urged international federations for winter sports events to suspend preparations for major competitions in Russia. The motion will be in effect until December 31, 2016 and may be reviewed at a session of the IOC executive board in December.
