Doping claims: IOC seeks action against Russian athletes

  • The International Olympic Committee wants disciplinary proceedings to be brought against Russian athletes accused of doping.

    The IOC has urged the IAAF to take action after a report detailing the doping was released.

    The independent commission report by the World Anti-Doping Agency said Russia should be banned from competition for its “state supported” doping program. It has called for life bans against five Russian athletes and five coaches.  

    Olympic champion Mariya Savinova is among those named in the report.
