Doping-Russia says WADA team to return to Moscow for required data on Jan 9

MOSCOW, Jan 7 (Reuters) - World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officials will return to Moscow on Jan. 9 to retrieve laboratory data it required, Russia’s minister of sport Pavel Kolobkov said on Monday.

Access to the lab and data before the end of 2018 was a condition of WADA’s September decision to reinstate the country’s anti-doping agency but extraction from the former Moscow Laboratory has not been completed.

WADA said it will consider sanctions against the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) for not providing the necessary information.

Russian authorities must also ensure that any re-analysis of samples required by WADA, following review of the laboratory data, is completed by no later than June 30, 2019. (Reporting by Maxim Rodionov Editing by Christian Radnedge)
