Olympics: Russia’s appeal against its four-year ban from all major sporting events will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport from today. In December 2019, Russia’s Anti-Doping Agency was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data handed over to investigators the previous January. The World Anti-Doping Agency had controversially reinstated Russia in 2018. But Wada’s executive committee made the unanimous decision to impose the ban, which bars Russia from competing in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics and football’s 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
