The saga of Russia’s anti-doping tribulations has taken another turn. Officials from the country now concede an extensive doping operation has been used to benefit its Olympic athletes. However, there are still denials that the Russian state, including President Vladimir Putin, were aware of the existence of the program.
The New York Times on Tuesday published a story headlined “Russians No Longer Dispute Olympic Doping Operation.” It includes an abundance of information highlighted by comments from Anna Antseliovich, the acting Director General of Russia’s national anti-doping agency, admitting the country was involved in an “institutional conspiracy” that covers “years’ worth of cheating schemes.”
Although doping is an issue that is present in many avenues of high-level athletics across numerous countries, Russia’s entirely unethical involvement with its athletes in relation to drug testing become a global news story in the lead-up and fallout of the recent Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
