Anti-Doping: Nonsense, if the russians can play the WORLD cup

Michael Ash believes that it will be to dilute the concept of exclusion, if the russians can participate at the WORLD cup in football.

The International anti-doping agency (Wada) executive board ruled on Monday Russia from international sporting events of the next four years, because the country has tampered with the doping.

the OLYMPICS in 2020 and the winter OLYMPICS in 2022 will be without Russia as a nation, but russians, who can prove their dopinguskyld, can have the opportunity to make up under a neutral flag.

A hot topic on Monday and been, whether Russia can join the football WORLD cup in 2022 in Qatar.

At a news conference Monday afternoon, said Jonathan Taylor from the Wadas executive committee, a team, representing Russia, can not participate at the WORLD cup in Qatar.

Players can, however, seek to make up under a neutral flag, but in a way associated with Russia, said Jonathan Taylor.

The possible cat flap find no understanding of Anti Doping Denmark's director, Michael Ash, which otherwise is satisfied that Wada has awarded a penalty that sends a strong signal.

- It will be a dilution of the concept of "exclusion", if Russia was allowed to put up at the WORLD cup just under a different name, says Michael Ask.

He is referring to the winter OLYMPICS in 2018, which the Russian practitioners despite the exclusion of Russia stood as the "olympic athletes of Russia".

- It was what happened at the winter OLYMPICS in Pyeongchang two years ago. So I want to see as a watering down of the resolution that has come now, says Ash.

He believes that if punishment must be felt, then one must expect that it will in general be the exception rather than the rule, which allows the Russian practitioners to participate in international competitions as a neutral practitioners.

- Takes you to the football, so make one up as a nation and play against another nation. It will in my opinion be pure nonsense, if you asked under a different name or without a name.

- I do not know how to do it. I do not think that there is a precedent in the history of the world that it should be done, says Michael Ask.
