    WADA committee recommends wiping Russia from the sporting map for four years due to d


    Russia may be wiped from the global sporting world for four years if the recommendations of a World Anti-Doping Agency compliance committee are accepted by WADA's executive.

    It is alleged the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) removed what may have been positive samples from its database as well as deleting and/or altering other files dating back to 2015, the peak of a state sanctioned doping program exposed by Russian whistleblowers and resulting in Russia being banned from a number of events, including the Rio Olympic Games.

    The Moscow data was handed over to independent WADA investigators as part of a "road map" for reinstatement.
    In a 26-page report written by WADA's Intelligence and Investigations department it is also alleged fabricated evidence was planted in the database to discredit Dr Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of Russia's anti-doping laboratory now living in the US under a witness protection program.

    WADA's Compliance Review Committee's recommendation of a four-year ban for Russia includes that:

    • No Russian Government officials or representatives are to sit as members of boards or committees on any code-compliant organisations (such as Olympic sports, FIFA, etc);
    • Russian Government officials or representatives may not participate in or attend any major sporting events, including January's Youth Winter Olympic Games in Lausanne, the Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar;
    • Russia be prevented from hosting any major sporting event within the period;
    • Events already awarded to Russia (such as UEFA 2020 matches) be withdrawn unless it is legally or practically impossible to do so;
    • Russia's flag be banned from all major events
    • No senior officials (President, Secretary General and CEO) of the Russian Olympic Committee or the Russian Paralympic Committee be allowed to attend any major sporting event; and
    • Russian athletes only be allowed to compete if they can prove they are not implicated in any way by the non-compliance findings. .
