Wada clears 95 Russian athletes of doping charges

The judges considered the Russians to be innocent and agreed that the data from the report of the independent Commission of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA), chaired by canadian lawyer Richard McLaren may not be sufficient grounds for disqualification of athletes.

Durand said Russian authorities had appointed Rodchenkov to head the laboratory in 2006 and that laboratories were "responsible for applying for, obtaining, and maintaining WADA accreditation". They allege that they were "unfairly implicated" in a report on state-sponsored doping and that this led to their not being able to compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

WH Vows to Review Protections 'Extensively' Post-Equifax Hack
In January, the consumer bureau accused Equifax and TransUnion of misleading consumers about credit products they had sold them. Company officials said arbitration applies only to monitoring services, not the data breach, according to published reports.

A leaked internal Wada report published by the newspaper Tuesday said the agency found it could not gather enough evidence against 95 out of 96 Russian athletes who it has been probing.

"We've acknowledged that this man (Rodchenkov) himself violated all the WADA rules, regulations and standards", Mutko told R-Sport news agency. RUSADA was declared "non-compliant" with worldwide sport's anti-doping code in November 2015 in the wake of the report by professor Richard McLaren which uncovered widespread doping in Russian sport.

"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.

Three riders who were prevented from competing in the Rio Olympics past year as a result of doping allegations against Russian Federation have launched legal action against the World Anti Doping Agency WADA and the Canadian doping investigator Dr Richard McLaren.

Passionate Bellerin insists Arsenal focused on Cologne and Europa League, not Chelsea
Bellerin is absolutely right to say what he has said but it's not like Arsenal aren't spending big. But when they start playing, they really should get behind the team.
