Russian flags will not fly over the next two Olympic Games. — AFP/VNA Photo LAUSANNE — The World Anti-Doping Agency on Monday banned Russia for four years from major global sporting events including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar over manipulated doping data. WADA's executive committee, meeting in Lausanne, handed Russia the "robust" four-year suspension after accusing Moscow of falsifying data from a doping testing laboratory that was handed over to investigators earlier this year. The toughest ever sanctions imposed on Russian state authorities will see government officials barred from attending any major events, while the country will lose the right to host, or even bid, for tournaments. "For too long, Russian doping has detracted from clean sport," WADA president Craig Reedie said. "Russia was afforded every opportunity to get its house in order and re-join the global anti-doping community for the good of its athletes and of the … [Read more...] about Russia banned from Olympics, World Cup over doping
