Yuri Gannas, head of Russia's anti-doping agency, said – We sent documents to Wada against the ban

Dainik BhaskarDec 27, 2019, 07:24 PM IST Sports Desk. Russia has challenged the 4-year ban of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) imposed on it. Yuri Gannus, head of Russia's anti-doping agency, reported this on Friday. "We have sent documents to WADA today as part of the due process," Ganas said. There is also a notice disagreeing with Bain. He has also sent a letter to Wada, in which he has again clarified his tough stand against doping.
Speaking to the news agency, Gannus said, "It is practically impossible to fight against the Wada ban. He says that Russia should accept this ban and rectify its mistake and bring changes in the system. "However, Gannus' stance on doping has always been stricter. Due to this, they are not getting derailed by their own government.
The Russian President called Wada's action politically motivated. Thirty month, Wada imposed a 4-year ban on Russia for sending wrong samples of athletes. Because of this, he will not be able to participate in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 Football World Cup. Also, he will not be able to participate in Winter Olympics and Paralympics. The Russian President also expressed displeasure over the action of Wada, calling it politically motivated. He had said that Russia would fight a legal battle against this ban. Putin insisted, most athletes are not involved. In such a situation, due to the mistake of some players, the rest should not be prevented from participating in the Olympic or other big sporting events under the Russian flag.
Manasa did not give credence to the data handed over by Russia to Wada in January this year handed over the data of its government doping lab to Wada. It is in Moscow. Russia had said that after handing over this integrated data, it should be excluded from WADA's restricted lab list. However, Wada later made it clear that the data it had received was not reliable. Wada had said that Russia did not follow the institution's standards. Yuri Gannus, the head of Russia's anti-doping agency, also believed that the data sent to Wada may have been tampered with.
The feud over doping between Russia and WADA began in 2015, 4 years before the dispute began. Wada recommended Russia's exit from the 2016 Rio Olympics, considering the Moscow lab's data still suspicious. However, this recommendation was rejected by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Russia suffered in Khamiaja 2018. He was allowed to participate in the PyeongCheng Winter Olympics, but was not entitled to medals.
Russia is the 9th country to be banned in the Olympics; Russia is the 9th country to be banned in the Olympics. Due to doping, the flag of a country will not be seen for the first time. Earlier, Austria, Bulgaria, Turkey, Hungary, Japan and Germany were banned for participating in the World War. South Africa (due to apartheid) and Afghanistan (due to Taliban atrocities on women) have also been banned. Russian players could not participate in 2016 due to doping in athletics, rowing, weightlifting and canoeing. Despite this, Russia won 19 gold medals.
