The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announced that it had begun to build cases against Russian athletes from raw data retrieved from a Moscow laboratory on Thursday.
WADA's director of intelligence Gunter Younger told the board that the first cases using data from the lab had been turned over to international federations and he expected the work to be completed by the end of the year.
«Now, we... Еще enter to the next step,» Younger informed board members at a meeting in Montreal.
«The strongest cases we have now identified,» the intelligence chief added.
«We will now start with case one we consider strongest, get into the data base get the raw data and with our raw data we go to our lab experts.»
The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) was reinstated last year after fulfilling compliance requirements, including access to the Moscow lab.
