• Russian bank threatens to sue WADA over IAAF sponsorship claims


    MOSCOW: Russia’s state-run bank VTB threatened to sue the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) after it questioned a sponsorship deal with the governing body of world athletics. A WADA independent commission last year released a bombshell report alleging a system of state-sponsored doping in Russian athletics that saw Moscow’s track and field team suspended from international competition. In a second report released in January and focused on high-ranking corruption in world athletics the commission demanded a probe into the legitimacy of a $25 million VTB sponsorship deal with the IAAF.
