Russia banned from all major sports events

World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) has banned Russia from all major events for a period of 4 years including 2020 Olympics and 2022 World Cup.

But athletes who will prove compliance with anti-doping policies will be able to compete under a neutral flag.

In January 2019 Russia’s Anti Doping Agency(Rusada) was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data handed over to investigators .

Wada says Rusada has 21 days to appeal against the ban. If it does so, the appeal will be referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).
