Russia’s hosting games under risk after the ban by Wada

Russia could also be banned from the Tokyo Olympics of next year, as well as the other major competitions, as they were also excluded from winter games of 2018.

Upon finding the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (Rusada) to be non-compliant with irregularities in anti-doping evidence the Wada Compliance Review Committee (CRC) suggested a series of actions.

One proposal is to take the right of hosting an event.

St Petersburg is the venue of Euro 2020 group games.

At a meeting held in Paris on 9 December, the Wada Executive Board will consider the suggestions and make final choices.

The Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs believed the ban was part of a broader global campaign to undermine the government of Russia.

The CRC made its recommendations “in particular” based on a forensic analysis of inconsistencies in a few of the data collected by the agency in January 2019 from the Moscow Laboratory.

CRC’s “strong proposed consequences” include:

Russia cannot host, sell or hold major events for four years.

Russia may not apply for the right to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In no major event over the four year cycle, can the flags of the nation be flown.

Russian athletes and their support staff may only participate in the major events over a period of four years if they can demonstrate that non-compliance does not imply them in any way.

Where Russia is granted the right to host a major event over the last four years, the signatory must revoke that right and reassign this event to another country, except this is not possible legally or practically.

The January 2019 results, which led to a new inquiry, missed the significant findings in 2017, which had the courtesy of a whistleblower.
