Russia must be severely punished for the manipulation of dopingdata, believes the Danish sports Federations like the Wada panel.
An exclusion of Russia in the four years from all the major sporting events are appropriate, after it has emerged that they have been tampered with Russian dopingprøveresultater.
It takes the Danish sports confederation (DIF), according to a panel under the Wada has recommended a number of historic sanctions against Russia's anti-doping agency (Rusada), including the exclusion of four years.
- It is appalling revelations, which confirms all our fears. Russia's got an outstretched hand of Wada and a chance to make a clean sweep. Instead they chose to manipulate again, say, DIF-ceo Morten Mølholm in a press release.
In 2015, rolled the revelations about state-sponsored doping in Russia. Russia has been suspected of dabbling with the athletes ' test scores.
In January, was the Wada given the data from a laboratory in Moscow, but in september it emerged that the russians had tampered with these data.
Supposedly, some test scores, among other have been removed and times on the samples are changed.
9. december Wadas board of directors at a meeting in Paris to decide on the setting on the severity of the penalties must be followed. In that case Russia among other things, to be excluded from the OLYMPICS in 2020 and 2022, and the country must not hold major sporting events.
- It is some unheard of tough sanctions, as recommended by the Wadas independent expert committee, but I think that they are in its place. And I recommend Wadas board of directors to follow the recommendations at its upcoming meeting in early december.
Doping is undermining the sport's credibility and fascinationskraft. Therefore, it should also have extraordinary hard consequences, when there are being cheated and manipulated in a magnitude, as we have seen in this case, says Morten Mølholm.
the Head of Russia's anti-doping agency, Yuri Ganus, expect that Wada will exclude Russia for four years, he said Tuesday to AFP.
