Doping scandal, Russia off the playground for 4 years

WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, recommended banning Russia's participation in the Tokyo Olympics and the Paralympics by 2020, and Russia has been banned from the playground for four years by the decision-making committee of Wada. The decision has resulted in Russia being excluded from major international events for the next four years, including the Tokyo Olympics 2020, the scheduled Football World Cup 2022 in Qatar and the 2022 Beijing Winter Games.

The Wada's Compliance Review Committee agreed to the Russian recommendation on allegations that Russia changed the data on its players' doping tests and destroyed them. The committee called the Russian initiative a "very serious matter of non-compliance" and The figures cited hundreds of incidents of counterfeiting and extermination, but said that individual athletes who proved themselves to be doping and met other conditions would be allowed to participate in next year's Olympics and Paralympics. ۔
