South Korea: 'This scandal is a firestorm' — WADA President on Russia case

The President of the World Anti-Doping Agency, Craig Reedie, and its Director General, Olivier Niggli, held a press conference in Pyeongchang on Thursday, with particular attention given to the Russian doping case. Reedie said that this «scandal has created a firestorm with many anti-doping stakeholders» but he believes that «the WADA system actually works because it did expose wrongdoing on a... Еще massive scale.» Speaking about the conditions Russian authorities are bound to fulfill regarding the cases he said that, «the first of these conditions is an acceptance by the Russian authorities of the outcome of the McLaren report. And the second condition is the provision by the Russian authorities of access to where samples are still under secured protection.» Reedie expressed his sadness over the fact that they have to deal with all the doping cases in the Court of Arbitration for Sport. He added that «we will continue to support the Russian anti-doping agency and the improvements that are has made under its new Director General to make sure that there is proper testing done.» Niggli added that he «wouldn't want to make any comments on a pending case», but said that «we have a process for the revision of the list every year and our scientists are engaged in that process.»
