WADA: 15 international sports federations carry on with doping probes in regard to Russia

Two International Federations have officially closed cases

MOSCOW, April 17. /TASS/. Fifteen international sports federations carry on with anti-doping investigations in regard to Russian athletes, Insidethegames sports web portal cited World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) President Craig Reedie as saying.

"It is a very complex investigation," Sir Craig Reedie said. "What we can see so far is that many International Federations are overstretched with the complexity of the data."

"Two IFs (International Federations) have officially closed cases. Four have processed cases. Seven have requested details on forensic analysis," Reedie said. "Four have requested re-analysis of WADA-received samples."

"We have to finish this because sport will be diminished, the fight against doping in sport will be diminished and the reputation of IFs in sport could be diminished as well," the WADA president added commenting on the ongoing anti-doping probes in regard to Russian athletes.

In mid-December 2017, the WADA Intelligence and Investigations Team met with over 60 representatives from international sports federations, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and other Anti-Doping Organizations to share information from the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) database of the former WADA-accredited Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory.
