World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) does not agree with International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s decision not to exlude Russia from Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. Liga.net reports this, citing the official website of the organization.
“WADA is disappointed that the IOC did not heed WADA’s Executive Committee recommendations that were based on the outcomes of the McLaren Investigation and would have ensured a straight-forward, strong and harmonized approach,” said Sir Craig Reedie, President, WADA. “The McLaren Report exposed, beyond a reasonable doubt, a state-run doping program in Russia that seriously undermines the principles of clean sport embodied within the World Anti-Doping Code,” Reedie continued.
Committee stressed that any Russian sportsmen that was caught using doping will not be able to participate in Olympic Games, even if he fulfilled his statement.
