Russia Has Been Banned For 4 Years Both 2022 World Cup and 2020 Olympics

Russia has been ban from all major sporting events by the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada). Russian prime minister Dmitry Medvedev said the ban was part of “chronic anti-Russian hysteria”. It is obvious that significant doping problems still exist in Russia, I mean our sporting community.

It means the Russia flag and anthem will not be allowed at events such as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics and football’s 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fact that all these decisions are repeated, often affecting athletes who have already been punished in one way or another, not to mention some other points of course this makes one think that this is part of anti-Russian hysteria which has become chronic.

Wada’s executive committee made the unanimous decision to impose the ban on Russia in a meeting in Lausanne Switzerland, on Monday. It comes after Russia’s Anti Doping Agency (Rusada) was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data handed over to investigators in January 2019.
It had to hand over data to Wada as a condition of its controversial reinstatement in 2018 after a three-year suspension for its vast state-sponsored doping scandal.

Wada says Rusada has 21 days to appeal against the ban. If it does so, the appeal will be referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).
Wada president Sir Craig Reedie said the decision showed its “determination to act resolutely in the face of the Russian doping crisis”. He also said that “For too long, Russian detracted from clean sport. The blatant breach by the Russian authorities of Rusada’s reinstatement conditions demanded a robust response. That is exactly what has been delivered.

Russia was afforded every opportunity to get its house in order and re-join the global anti-doping community for the good of its athletes and of the integrity of sport, but it chose instead to continue in its stance of deception and denial.” But Wada vice-president Linda Helleland said the ban was “not enough”.
