MOSCOW(Sputnik) - The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) experts have finished the investigation of 298 Russian athletes and sent the details to 27 international federations, the organisation said in a press release on Thursday.

"The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announces today that the Agency’s independent Intelligence and Investigations (I&I) team has completed its investigation of 298 Russian athletes that WADA I&I targeted as part of its ongoing ‘Operation LIMS’(1) probe into institutionalized doping in Russia and has provided detailed case packages to a total of 28 Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs), including 27 International Federations (IFs) and one Major Event Organization," the press release read.

WADA Updates Anti-Doping Guidance in Light of COVID-19 Pandemic
Earlier, WADA labelled the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA ) as non-compliant with the world anti-doping code and suspended Russian athletes for four years from competing in major international competitions under the national flag, along with imposing a range of other restrictions, over the agency's alleged manipulations with the data of the national anti-doping laboratory in Moscow.

Since RUSADA notified WADA officially about its disagreement with the decision, the dispute was referred to the Swiss-based CAS. In late-March, the hearing was postponed until June amid the current coronavirus pandemic.
