Anti Doping Agency bans Russia from Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Qatar 2022 World Cup

Intro

The World Anti-Doping Agency on Monday banned Russia from global sporting events including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and the Qatar 2022 Football World Cup after accusing Moscow of falsifying data from an anti-doping laboratory.

“The full list of recommendations have been unanimously accepted,” said WADA spokesman James Fitzgerald, speaking at a meeting of the body’s executive committee in Lausanne.

“WADA’s executive committee approved unanimously to assert a non-compliance on the Russian anti-doping agency for a period of four years,” he added.
