WADA to probe Russian doping allegations related to 2014 Sochi Olympics
The broadcast featured former Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) employee Vitaly Stepanov, who claimed that numerous Russian athletes had doped at Sochi, including four gold medalists.
"WADA has not yet been able to independently verify these allegations, but will now conduct further inquiries into the allegations without delay," an official WADA statement reads.
“WADA will probe these new allegations immediately,” said WADA President Sir Craig Reedie. “The claims made in the program offer real cause for concern, as they contain new allegations regarding attempts to subvert the anti-doping process at the Sochi Games,” added Reedie.
