RUSADA chief: No chance to reverse ban

Secretary-General of the Russian anti-doping body (RUSADA) Yuri Ganus (pictured) commented on Monday on the decision made by the World Anti-Doping Agency, saying that there is zero chance to win an appeal to the ban and reverse the four-year disqualification imposed on Russian athletes.

He went on to describe the non-compliance decision made by WADA's executive committee as a "tragedy" for "clean" Russian athletes.

The ban comes following a series of incidents, including a warning WADA issued in January which suggested that the Russian anti-doping agency had been manipulating lab data submitted for review and might bear appropriate consequences.
