WADA clears 95 of 96 Russian athletes implicated in McLaren report due to "insufficient evidence"

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has closed its investigation in regard to 95 of the 96 Russian athletes implicated in its McLaren Report as there 'simply may not be sufficient evidence required to sanction', it has told RT.

In an official email response to a request made by RT received on Wednesday, WADA stated, "For many of the athletes identified, the only evidence available is what Professor McLaren could unveil.



Comment: And the only evidence McLaren had was what he created out of thin air. So essentially, there was no evidence of a "state-sponsored doping program" in Russia. It was a politicized witch hunt from the beginning by McLaren, who was used by elites in the West to demonize Russia



Explaining why sanctions could not conclusively be brought against many of the individual athletes identified in the Report, WADA said that there "simply may not be sufficient evidence required to sanction (the athletes), with potential ADRVs (Anti-Doping Rule Violations).

"To date, WADA has received 96 IF (International Federations) case decisions; of which, one case will proceed.
