The Russian Anti-doping Agency (RUSADA), the agency that aided and abetted doping of its own athletes, which led to the practice of extorting its own athletes who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs claims that their track and field athletes are the most tested of all.

In its latest report, RUSADA said 675 track and field competitors had undergone doping tests in the first six months of 2019.
