The National Anti-Doping Agency (Nada) has requested a new suspension of the corresponding Russian institution (Rusada). “From our point of view, the Russian Sport has not met the requirements of the world Anti-Doping Agency (Wada). We therefore assume that the Wada is now consistently and the Rusada after the meeting of the Compliance Review Committee at the 14. 15. January 2019 for non-Wada-Code compliant declared,“ let the Nada-chair Andrea Gotzmann on new year’s day on request.

This would be suspended Rusada. “For the protection of the clean athletes and doping-free Sport, this clear position of Wada is essential”, reads the statement of the woman Gotzmann. The first suspension of Rusada because of the national doping, among other things, during the 2014 winter games in Sochi had been canceled in September 2018 by Wada, although the Russians had not met two of the Wada conditions: the recognition of the McLaren-report on the organization of the state of Doping and the access to the data Management System (Lims) of the Moscow Anti-Doping laboratory.

From the Lims data, the investigators expect to learn more information on manipulation in the Russian Sport between 2012 and 2016. A group of experts to the Wada had had to cancel their trip at Christmas, because Russian authorities said the use of “non-certified” devices.Wada President Reedie had said in the autumn after fierce protests by athletes against the lifting of the suspension, he was convinced one hundred percent that this step will follow an access to the data until the end of 2018. “It’s time that Wada can no longer play”, had been challenged before the Nada Travis Tygart, the head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency Usada.
