• WADA suspends Russian anti-doping agency


    COLORADO SPRINGS: Russia’s anti-doping agency (RUSADA) was suspended by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila), raising the possibility of Russian track stars being barred from the Olympics if the country does not fall back into line with accepted international rules. WADA’s foundation board unanimously passed a recommendation from a committee which found RUSADA non-compliant with the global body’s charter. RUSADA had been heavily implicated in the scandal and was accused of destroying samples requested for analysis by WADA.
