Russian Athletes Cleared of Doping Charges by WADA

Three Russian cyclists banned from participating in the 2016 Rio Olympics filed a lawsuit on September 11 in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against Richard McLaren and WADA, alleging that they were "unfairly implicated" and wrongfully associated with cheaters and doping.

Kirill Sveshnikov, Dmitry Strakhov and Dmitry Sokolov were unable to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympics after Russian athletes were banned.

McLaren's report into state-sponsored doping concluded that they had positive test results covered up by Russian Federation, but the trio have claimed they were 'unfairly implicated'.

The McLaren report, an independent study commissioned by Wada, found evidence of state-sponsored doping.

Now, over a year later, they claim they "suffered great reputational harm", even though they were not personally named in the report. This publication reports The New York Times, citing an internal document of the organization.

In comments e-mailed to reporters, WADA dismissed Mutko's assertions.

Per Mertesacker, Theo Walcott and David Ospina are just three more squad members who could be handed much-needed minutes. They had a hard time too, they lost two games and won several games in the last minutes (against West Ham and Watford).

The World Anti-Doping Agency's decision on clearing 95 Russian athletes mentioned in the report of an independent panel led by Richard McLaren shows that the regulator has sorted out this situation, lawmaker and the world's legendary ice hockey player Vyacheslav Fetisov told TASS.

"WADA would expect the Russian authorities to take responsibility for this deliberate system of cheating that was uncovered by the McLaren Investigation - as is stipulated within RUSADA's Roadmap to Compliance - rather than continually shifting the blame onto others", WADA spokesperson Maggie Durand said.

It is claimed that more than 1,000 Russian athletes were involved in a state-sponsored programme.
