  • The World Anti-Doping Agency confirmed Thursday it has sent its case for the exclusion of Russia from international sporting competitions to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
  • CAS, the world’s highest sport court, must decide whether to confirm the four-year ban Wada imposed on Russia last month or consider Russia’s case against the epic sanction.
  • The announcement came exactly one month after Wada decided to impose a four-year ban on Russia over what it considers a state-sponsored doping scheme – prohibiting Russia from participating in such events as this year’s Tokyo Olympics, the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and the 2022 football World Cup.
