(LAUSANNE) JUST IN: #WADA bars Russian athletes from ALL international competitions INCLUDING Olympics and World Cup with part of the punishments, officials in the country are also banned from attending major sporting events and their flag not flying: The committee said it was to punish those who do wrong and not those competing for the right reason ….But this punishes ALL Russian sportsmen and women #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Dec.09: The Executive Committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has unanimously upheld the recommendation to impose sanctions against Russian sports: The Russian Anti-Doping Agency has been deprived of compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code: Russia has been deprived of the right to hold international competitions and apply for them for four years: Russian athletes have been suspended from participating in the Olympic Games for four years Pravda reports

Russian boxers don’t want to go to the Olympics without a flag and anthem, Umar Kremlev, Secretary-General of the Russian Boxing Federation said. According to him, WADA’s decision is stupid and incomprehensible; those responsible should be punished, sports and the country have nothing to do with it: ““Our athletes say they’re going there not for the Olympics and medals; they are going there to win, for the Russian national anthem to play and the Russian flag to be raised. If they want to go, I will support their participation. WADA’s decision is stupid and incomprehensible; what do all sports and the country have to do with it? The leaders of our federation are to blame for this decision because we don’t have our own representative in WADA and the IOC. While there are no representatives, there will be other decisions as well. Russia has always been envied. There is no task to punish athletes; there is a task to say that the country is to blame and to accuse the leadership”, Umar Kremlev said.” @SputnikInt https://ift.tt/354LtcL

The WADA Executive Committee has also prohibited Russian public officials and officials of the Russian Olympic Committee and the Paralympic Committee from visiting international sports competitions for four years: These sanctions have been imposed on account of intentional manipulations with the database of a Moscow laboratory: The manipulations were made last winter before the database was transferred to WADA experts: The investigation revealed that there were changes introduced to the database during 2012-2015 in order to conceal positive doping tests: The transfer of an authentic laboratory database was the key to the restoration of the rights of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).

Thomas Bach, the head of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), earlier stated that his department would unconditionally accept any decision of the WADA Executive Committee: The Russian side has 21 days to appeal this decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.

Russia will also reportedly be banned from hosting global sporting events during the four-year period. And as part of the punishments, officials in the country are also banned from attending major sporting events as well.”The punishment has been met with criticism from some members of the agency, including Linda Helleland of Norway, who is currently the group’s vice president.” https://t.co/K1qNC50btm
