Director-General of the Russian Anti-Doping Authority (RUSADA) Yuriy Ganus warned that if something happens to him, it will be foul play and not suicide.
Ganus made the warning after he and examined a review of RUSADA by the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC), which he discredited.
“We have finished analysing the report of FinExpertiza, which was ordered by the ROC. Nothing but disappointment and anger. From the way our relations developed, I knew that we were not one team.”
The review apparently revealed a number of “significant irregularities in their financial and economic activities.”
Ganus was appointed director-general in 2017 and was the one who managed the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) reinstatement of RUSADA.
That December, WADA approved the recommendation that RUSADA was non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code for failing allegedly tampering with data (after stalling three times) from the Moscow Laboratory’s computer system.
A four-year ban was handed down.
