Russia facing ban from 2020 Olympics and European Championships

Russia could be set for a new ban from major international sporting events like next summer's Olympic and Paralympic Games over claimed inconsistencies in anti-doping data.

The World Anti-Doping Agency's executive committee will gather on December 9 to consider a formal recommendation from its independent compliance review committee (CRC), which is expected to call for the country's national anti-doping agency RUSADA to be declared non-compliant over the anomalies in laboratory results.

The data in question relates to a period from January 2012 to August 2015 and was obtained by WADA in January of this year under the terms of RUSADA's reinstatement to compliance in September 2018.
