Tasks: Russian doping tests manipulated
The rope with Russian doping never seems to end. When the athletes are waiting to be released to participate internationally, the next battle will come. Prominent German journalist Hajo Seppelt writes that Russian authorities are suspected of manipulating data and test results from the Moscow lab earlier this year.
Hajelt, who has been a leader in revealing doping data around East Germany, China, Kenya and Russia, was also the one who revealed the doping at the Seefeld Ski World Championships last winter, a process that is still ongoing.
According to Seppelt, the information has led the anti-doping agency Wada to launch an investigation against the Russian anti-doping authority Rusada. Wada will be informed at a meeting in Tokyo next week, something that Sputnik News also writes about.
Earlier this week, nine Russian athletes sued the French newspaper L'Equipe after an interview with Russian anti-doping chief Yuri Ganus, who accused the athletes of using illegal blood transfusions.
Ganus has backed a clue about certain word choices but claims that the spirit is correct and that it is not fakenews.
