    The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) agrees with the findings of the report by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) commission headed by Richard McLaren on alleged Russian doping abuse published on Friday and will keep reanalyzing Russian doping probes, the association said in a statement.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The second part of the report on the alleged doping abuse in Russia was released by the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) commission led by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren on December 9, 2016.

    It contains investigation materials comprising over 1,000 testimonies, including letters and results of tests.

    The report claimed that more than 1,000 Russian athletes were involved in doping manipulations or benefitted from them.

    "The IAAF agrees with Prof. McLaren that it is time that this manipulation stops and with this aim has been working in close cooperation with Prof. McLaren's team and WADA and continues to do so… Russian samples from IAAF World Championships up to and including Moscow 2013 have been, or are in the process of being, reanalysed," the statement said.
