“The IOC has no complaints about OCD as an institution. There are no complaints against national federations - this was stated in the corresponding press release. On the part of WADA, in the recommendations that the compliance group submitted to the executive committee of this organization for approval and referral to CAS, there were also no suspicions related to the activities of our organization. That is why the ROC, as a sovereign national Olympic Committee, fulfills its duties and enjoys all the rights set forth in the Olympic Charter. This is our position, and our lawyers will defend it, ”said Pozdnyakov RT.
On December 9, 2019, the executive committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) decided to remove Russia from major international competitions for four years for fraud with a database of a Moscow laboratory. The Russian side appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.
Earlier, the head of the ROC spoke about the chances of Russian athletes to get to the Olympics in Tokyo.
