Russia athletics body to admit to some claims in WADA reportNovember 12, 2015
The Russian Athletic Federation says they plan to admit to some of the charges made by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), who released a report accusing Russia of state-sponsored doping. Their admission means that the country can avoid a ban from athletics, especially with the Summer Olympics coming next year in Rio de Janeiro. Still, Russia’s Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko says even with a ban, the country won’t boycott the Rio Games because, as he put it, “Russia is against political interference in sport”.
