Statement from the WADA Athlete Committee on Russian Compliance Situation
We are extremely disappointed that the Dec. 31 deadline imposed on Russia by WADA has not been adhered to by the Russian authorities.
We now expect that following the process recommended by the CRC that Russia will be declared non-compliant. Only this action will be suitable and appropriate in the view of the athletes.
Anything less will be considered a failure by WADA to act on behalf of clean athletes.
