MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier on Monday, WADA said in a statement that nomination of former Russian pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva as head of the RUSADA supervisory board did not comply with the WADA roadmap.
Isinbayeva was elected chairman of the newly-formed RUSADA supervisory board on March 9.
In November 2015, the WADA Independent Commission issued a report accusing Russia of numerous breaches of global anti-doping regulations and recommended the country be banned from international athletics competitions. The WADA also suspended Russia-based anti-doping lab operations run by the RUSADA. Russia has repeatedly denied the allegations of running a state-run doping program. Moscow is making efforts aimed at reforming its sports and ensuring Russian athletes' access to main world competitions.
