MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, an investigation commissioned by WADA said in a report that Russia had been running a state-sponsored doping scheme for years. In addition, the report concluded that the caps of bottles containing urine samples of the Russian athletes participating in the Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014 were then removed and reused.
“Once we have the further details we have requested from both parties, the IPC Governing Board will convene for a telephone conference. The Board will discuss the findings of the report and decide what relevant action needs to be taken to protect clean athletes competing in Paralympic sport. This may include provisional measures and sanctions with regards to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games,” IPC said in a statement.
The Committee added that it was " shocked" and "appalled" by the findings provided in the report. The IPC also pledges to analyze the report’s findings in detail to evaluate what impact they would have on the Paralympic Movement and Para Sport.
