World Anti-Doping Agency, meeting in Seychelles, ends suspension of Russian agency

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) ended a three-year suspension of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) in a meeting held in Seychelles on Thursday.

Nine members of the executive committee voted in favour of the recommendation of the review committee to reinstate the Russian agency, subject to strict conditions.

Jonathan Tailor, the chair of the compliance review committee, said that Russia has been reinstated on two very clear conditions.

“One, that the analytical data must be provided and the date agreed by the exco (executive committee) was by the end of the year. After that any samples that were required for re-analysis to be provided within six months,” Taylor told journalists after the meeting at Eden Bleu on the outskirts of the capital, Victoria.
