WADA: Russian athletes on the top of anti-doping violations list in 2015

The WADA was founded in 1997 as a multinational, independent agency established and funded by the sporting community and governments worldwide. The WADA is a globally independent agency. Scientific research, learning, anti-doping capability growth and a World Code (the Code) on monitoring are all main activities–a framework harmonizing the strategies of anti-doping in all sports and in all countries.

The world anti-doping body announced in Monday’s third Annual Report that Russian athletes had the largest amount of anti-doping violations in 2015, with Italy second and India sixth.

In the background of the revised world anti-doping code, the Russian Federation had 176 ADRVs, Italy 129 and India 117.

France finished fourth, consisting of Belgium (67), South Africa (59), Turkey (59), the United States (50), South Korea (51), and Iran (48).

The most popular sport in 2015 was bodybuilding, 270 with sports athletics (242) as well as weightlifting (239) as a third.

The fourth runner was 200 and the rest of the top 10 was filled by powerlifting (110), football (108), the rugby union (80), boxing (66) and wrestling (57).

The study included 1,929 infringements of laws, involving people from 122 countries and 85 sports.

The adverse results (positive tests) accounted for 1,649 infringements, while the other 280 came from non-analytical ‘ proof-based intelligence ‘ reports – an improvement in the WADA statistics that was ‘ consistent with an increased focus of the anti-doping campaign on testing, information, and whistleblowing. ‘

“While testing remains vital to doping detection, recent events have shown that work is ever more important as we aim to protect the rights of the world’s clean athletes.”
