Russia’s participation in the Olympic games in 2020 was under threat for investigating the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) possible inconsistencies of the Russian anti-doping Agency (RUSADA) world anti-doping code, according to Reuters.

If you declare RUSADA non-conforming anti-doping code, international Olympic Committee may be forced to suspend Russia from participation in the Olympic games in Tokyo.

The head of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Stanislav Pozdnyakov said that the situation around the possible removal of the Russians from participating the Olympics serious.

“Judging by the fact that on the basis of the report of the compliance Committee, the Executive Committee of WADA has already initiated consideration of the question of the status of RUSADA under the accelerated procedure, the situation is very serious,” – said Pozdnyakov.

He noted that Russia has three weeks to refute the suspicion.

“Otherwise, along with the problem associated with the status of RUSADA and the ensuing consequences for the whole of our sport will be threatened and the prospects of participation of Russian Olympic team at the Games in Tokyo in the following year”, – noted the head of ROC.

“We have a large number of diplomatic efforts were spent to restore the confidence of the international sports community and the Russian athletes – the right to participate in the Olympic competition without any restrictions. But now again run the risk of one or other sanctions for reasons that have nothing to do,” – said Pozdnyakov.

Note, only the 26 July it became known that the Russian athletes were allowed to participate in the next Olympic games under the flag of Russia.
