Doping X-files

Russia is at the center of a major doping scandal that’s entering a new chapter in the run-up to the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo. Fresh allegations of data tampering have appeared, and the prospect of another blanket Olympic ban looms over Russian athletes. The World Anti-Doping Agency, or WADA, is investigating database “inconsistencies.” RTD correspondent Konstantin Rozhkov digs deep into the maelstrom of allegations and meets some of the leading players in the controversy. Russian anti-doping chief Yury Ganus, Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov, independent experts, and Russian Olympians affected by the scandal all provide a perspective that will help paint a fuller picture of the unfolding doping probe.

Watch "Doping X-files" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
