MOSCOW, July 25. /TASS/. Members of the Russian Olympic Committee’s (ROC) anti-doping commission will be approved at the next session of the ROC Executive Committee, Russian Tennis Federation President and member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Shamil Tarpishchev said on Monday.
On July 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested to ROC that an independent commission be set up to control doping in sport. On July 25, Vladimir Smirnov, the ROC honorary president, was appointed to chair the commission by the ROC executive board. Smirnov said that representatives to international sport federations, renowned athletes and media representatives will be included in the list of members of the commission.
"The commission’s composition will be approved at the next session of the Executive Committee. No limit on the number of members has been set," Tarpishchev said. "The talks about the list are ongoing but IOC members, (Aleksander) Popov and I have been invited to join the commission."
The ROC independent anti-doping commission is expected to be set up by July 28 when the Russian national team leaves for Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.
