Wada set to uphold Russian Federation ban from winter Olympics

WADA deems Russia remains non-compliant

Countries and sports federations must be compliant with the WADA Code to be eligible for the Olympics with the International Olympic Committee making the ultimate decision on participation. Russia, which avoided a blanket ban at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, though its track-and-field athletes were barred, has said its team will only compete in South Korea under the national flag.

The head of Russia's anti-doping body said Thursday that the organisation would continue "the huge amount" of work it has done in recent months after the World Anti-Doping Agency upheld its suspension of the country.

"This is unpleasant news", Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

"We are preparing for the Olympic Games", he added.

Russian athletes may be only allowed to compete as neutrals at the Olympics due to doping allegations.

WADA's decision, taken today in Seoul, raised the spectre of a possible ban of the Russian team from February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

"We do not agree with this decision, we believe it to be unfair".

The IOC has said it will decide on Russia's participation at the Pyeongchang Winter Games in South Korea during its executive board meeting being held from December 5-7.

WADA has demanded that Russia "publicly accept" the findings of an independent commission, which concluded that the scheme to obscure positive dope-test results involved about 1,000 Russian athletes from 2011-2015.
