Pound says Russia still has 'credibility' issue ahead of Olympics

Former President of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Dick Pound speaks at the Tackling Doping in Sport 2016 conference in London on March 9, 2016Former World Anti-Doping Agency president Dick Pound said Thursday that it would be “very hard” to trust any Russian athlete at this year’s Olympics Games in Rio should the country succeed in overturning its ban from international competition. It was a report produced by an independent commission chaired by Pound, following undercover reporting by German broadcaster ARD, that led to Russia being suspended from all international competition in November after what the Canadian said was a programme of “state-sponsored doping”. Following the Pound commission report, a WADA “task force” has been sent into Russia with the aim of rebuilding the country’s anti-doping system with the aim of getting the nation back into the Olympics.
