Russian Olympic Committee rejects prospect of 2020 ban

Surjit kumar Dhal, Moscow, Jan 24: World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) has said it wouldn’t ban Russia’s anti-doping agency for missing the deadline after Russia turned over data from the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, more than two weeks after the December 31 deadline,

There is no chance its team could be banned from next year’s Olympics, even though that’s the consequence threatened by a key World Anti-Doping Agency committee if it finds Russia faked key lab data, the Russian Olympic Committee has said.

However, WADA’s Compliance Review Committee has said it will recommend a blanket Olympic ban on Russia for next year’s games in Tokyo if the data _ which was under guard by Russian law enforcement _ has been tampered with.
