Russia responds to doping allegations….

Vitaly Mutko

Russia’s sport minister, Vitaly Mutko, has denied all allegations, while the RusAthletics, the Russian track and field federation, has accused WADA of circumventing established protocols for dealing with doping. “Any suspension should be discussed at the meeting of the IAAF [International Association of Athletics Federations] in November,” the acting head of RusAthletics, Vadim Zelechenok, told R-Sport channel. “It should be proven that any violations were the fault of the federation and not individual sportspeople. We should be given a chance to clear our names.”
