SOT, Craig Reedie, WADA President: «This is the letter from Russian authorities to me? Well I hope it is a game changer. We have been exchanging correspondence now for the best part of a year and a half and there have been many different variations of the words. I think this one is probably the most encouraging one that we had. For all of these over the past year and a half, I've signed the... Еще letters, I've had the advantage of advice from the compliance review committee and it's entirely appropriate that if I get a letter I won't respond to it instantly. I think I should get the compliance review committee to look at it first, and then we will respond, but I am encouraged with what we said.» *NO CUTAWAYS AT SOURCE* *JUMP CUT AT SOURCE* SOT, Craig Reedie, WADA President: «I haven't got it in front of me. We have been speaking about how they acknowledge the points that have been made in three different commissions Pound, McClaren and Schmidt, and that is one of the issues. I don't have it here but clearly we will look at that very closely because it's a significant point.» *JUMPCUT AT SOURCE* *NO CUTAWAYS AT SOURCE* World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) President Craig Reedie claimed that a letter from Russian authorities could be a ‘game changer’ in navigating the deadlock with the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), during a press conference in Montreal, Thursday. “I hope it is a game changer”, Creedie said in reference to the alleged letter. “We have been exchanging correspondence now for the best part of a year and a half and there have been many different variations of the words. I think this one is probably the most encouraging one that we had”, he stated. The WADA president explained that he hoped compliance could be agreed at an “early date.” He added, “it is in the interest of the Russian athletes that that happens because if they are not compliant then somebody somewhere will have a comment to make in any Russian athlete that wins a medal.» WADA suspended RUSADA in 2015 after declaring it to be non-compliant following a doping scandal involving Moscow's main drug-testing laboratory.
