The World Anti-Doping Agency has opened compliance proceedings against the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) on exactly what it said were inconsistencies in data supplied to WADA in January this season.
RUSADA is in danger of being declared non-compliant by WADA just months after a suspension was raised, which might put greater pressure to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to exclude Russia from the Tokyo Olympics following season for failing to ensure that its athletes are clean.
The WADA Executive Committee received a report on Monday updating it upon the analysis of information in the Moscow lab which contained tens of thousands of tests undergone by sportsmen and women’s outcomes.
“The ExCO was informed that additional evaluation… of all inconsistencies in Moscow Laboratory information had directed WADA to open an official compliance process against RUSADA on September 17 2019,” WADA said in a statement.
The organisation stated 47 instances had been emphasized and were being acted on.
Chair of WADA’s Compliance Review Committee, jonathan Taylor, presented the data regarding the committee from Tokyo.
Because a 2015 report outlined signs of state-backed doping in athletics WADA was under pressure to bring Russia.
That was amplified when a report by attorney Richard McLaren revealed evidence of doping and analyzing manipulation in Russia across many sports.
Last Septemberthe WADA executive committee voted to reinstate RUSADA before it had fulfilled the demands laid out at a”Roadmap to Compliance”, which included handing over the data from the Moscow lab.
Analysis was performed by WADA investigators before passing to take measures contrary to the athletes after the data and samples in the Moscow laboratory were eventually handed over.
Last month, the International Weightlifting Federation suspended 12 Russian athletes.
The Russian Athletics Federation (Rusaf) remains banned from international competition.
