INDEPENDENT COMMISSION – REPORT 1
In December 2014, WADA launched an Independent Commission (IC) to investigate the validity of allegations made by ARD’s documentary titled ‘The secrets of Doping: How Russia makes its winners?’. The documentary alleged doping practices; corrupt practices around sample collection and results management; and, other ineffective administration of anti-doping processes that implicate Russia, the IAAF, athletes, coaches, trainers, doctors and other members of athletes’ entourages; as well as, the accredited laboratory based in Moscow and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).
The attached Report, which was released on 9 November, summarizes the IC’s findings.
