Volleyball body wants names of 10 Russians mentioned in WADA report

Moscow, July 20 (IANS) The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) on Wednesday requested the World Anti-Doping Agency to give the names of the ten Russian players mentioned in the report of the WADA independent commission.

The Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) chaired by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren released a report on Monday on the results of a probe into the accusations of doping and manipulation of tests by Russian athletes and officials at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, reports TASS.

The McLaren investigation found evidence that Russia’s Sports Ministry and the Center for the Training of Russian National Teams and the Federal Security Service supported the doping programme in Russian sports.

The commission also concluded that the system of concealing positive doping tests at the Moscow anti-doping laboratory had been in effect from late 2011 to August 2015. Following the report WADA urged a ban on Russian athletes from all international sports competitions, including Rio 2016.
