Russian riders to sue Wada and Dr Richard McLaren over Rio Olympics exclusion

Three Russian Cyclists (Kirill Sveshnikov, Dmitry Strakhov and Dmitry Sokolov) File Claim Against the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and Richard McLaren

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.

Deaths in Georgia, South Carolina due to Irma
Cooper said five Red Cross shelters are hosting people from Florida and other states who are fleeing the storm. Still, Cooper said he knows Hurricane Irma could turn back toward North Carolina at any time.

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.

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.

"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.
