Russia banned from major sporting events

Russia has been served a four-year ban from all major sporting events by the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada).

This includes the 2020 Olympics to be held in Tokyo as well as the 2022 Football World Cup hosted by Qatar.

WADA’a executive committee made the unanimous decision in a meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland and comes after Russia’s Anti Doping Agency (Rusada) was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data submitted to investigators in January 2019.

Regardless of the ban, Russia will be able to compete at the Euro 2020; at which St. Petersburg will be one of the hosting cities-as UEFA, footballs governing body, is not defined as a major event when it came to decrees on anti-Doping.

    The Five Eyes countries are extremely good in the following 3 strategies…

    They are sophisticated in hiding their own crimes, pointing fingers at others and dividing the rest of the world.

    Convicts invaded Australasia continent on genocide, but continue to preach democracy and human rights, because they are good in hiding their atrocities, pointing fingers at others and dividing others.
