Nov 22 (Reuters) - Russia is again facing an Olympic ban after the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Compliance Review Committee recommended on Friday that the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) be ruled non-compliant over inconsistencies found in data from a Moscow laboratory.
WADA opened compliance proceedings again in September after finding inconsistencies in the vast bank of historical testing data finally handed over in January.
A report along with the recommendation has been sent to the WADA executive committee which will discuss the findings at a meeting in Paris on Dec. 9.
If ruled non-compliant, Russia could be excluded from next year’s Tokyo Olympics. (Reporting by Steve Keating in Toronto, Editing by Ed Osmond)
