Drug Free Sport NZ Statement on Russia

Drug Free Sport New Zealand Chief Executive Nick Paterson says “Once more we are dismayed but not surprised that Russia has missed another deadline.

“Despite WADA jumping through each hoop the Russians put forward, and making a team available to go to the Russian lab, it has been clear that Russia had no intention of delivering on the requirements of the WADA deal of September 2018.

“Sadly there is no other option available to WADA but make RUSADA non-compliant once more. The time for negotiation and compromise is long past.

“We hold Kiwi athletes strictly accountable and expect them to comply with the rules. We should do the same for countries. Clean sport and clean athletes deserve our support. It is time to stand strong, and all those involved in the fight against doping to stand together.”
