Statement from USADA CEO Travis T. Tygart on Russia’s CAS Appeal

USADA

Press Release

20th December 2019

“It’s no surprise Russia has appealed even the light consequences imposed on its proven state-sponsored doping system and cover up, as they have failed to ever take responsibility for these sporting crimes and have shown they will stop at nothing to escape penalty. Yet again, they deny accountability and continue to waste precious and limited resources in an effort to weasel out of the consequences, all the while leaving clean athletes of the world without justice or clarity on their path forward.

Let’s hope CAS has the independence and courage to see through these machinations and finally stand firm and take decisive action that puts in place a complete ban, which is allowed for and proportional to the intentional fraud, deception, and destruction of clean athletes and the Olympic values seen here.”
