Have no plans to throw out the russians from the winter ski world cup

Eight days of overtime is the international antidopingbyrået, Wada, on the way to Moscow once again to attempt to gain access to the database from the Russian antidopinglaboratoriet.

It is the so-called LIMS database (Laboratory Information Management System) from Moscow dopingjegerne are interested in. It is in this database information about any dopingsynder with Russian athletes before 2015 should be.

Access was a condition from Wada to let the russians into the heat again, but Wada chose to look away from it when they took the Russian antidopingbyrået Rusada up as full members again in the fall.

WADA experts return to Moscow

Then there was 1. January which was the russians 'new deadline to give Wada access to the database, but not this time limit was complied with from the russians' side.

No discussions

It has set minds in the boil in the international environment, and several have speculated about the russians now can be banned from the upcoming ski world CHAMPIONSHIP in Austria about just over a month.

Among other things, the IOC-honorary member Gerhard Heiberg.

" I hope that Russian athletes will join, but not under the Russian flag. They demonstrably clean athletes, can participate. During the OLYMPICS it is the IOC flag. Here is the FIS banner. But I hope you find a solution, " said Heiberg the Norwegian broadcasting corporation NRK.

There is, however, not on the stairs.

– Right now in progress, there is no discussion about the practitioner's participation in connection with The access in Moscow, we are discussing only Russian verdenscuparrangører and the chance to host world championships. Since Russia is not on the verdenscupkalenderen in cross-country, nor is there any thing to discuss here, writes communications manager Jenny Wiedeke in the international skiforbundet, FIS, in an e-mail to Dagbladet.

Skipresident Erik Røste, who also sits in the board of directors of the international skiforbundet, confirms to Dagbladet that the Russian participation in the ski world CHAMPIONSHIP is not discussed.

What we are talking about when it comes to the database in Moscow, is first and foremost about the athletes that are not on the starting line today. FIS has a program with extended dopingtesting of the Russian athletes today, and it will also run towards the championship in Seefeld. I think it is because of collective punishment in this case, you also run the risk of punishing innocent athletes, " says Røste to the Newspaper.

– But I expect Wada to follow up this, for we need these data to proceed. Now, though, is all the sincerity, " he continues.

< p> the Door closed soon Norway in dopingopprop against Russia

anti-doping Norway was one of sixteen national antidopingbyråer who signed a petition that enough is enough when Rusada also not complied with the deadline 1. January.

And even though Wada is now on the way to Moscow to make a new attempt, would in any event not Wada-committee which will determine the russians ' future fate had a meeting on the matter before the 14. 15. January.

Seindrektigheten have dropped anti-doping Norway heavy for the chest.

It has been several years now without that it has been cleaned up. Now in september gave WADA them a ekstraomgang that they are not deserved, and it didn't take RUSADA care of. Now, you must soon say that the door is closed. Therefore, it is important that we now say so, said managing director Anders Solheim in anti-doping Norway to NTB.

– the Board of directors will in the short term consider whether Rusada shall retain its status as a full member, " said Wada president Craig Reedie.

But what happens if Wada never get access to the LIMS database in Moscow?

I will not speculate, but for my own part, I have an expectation that this information will come. This weakens confidence in the system, and to date is not Rusada Wada-compliant the way I see it. It is a clear decision on this, and we can't accept it if we don't get access to the database, " says skipresident Røste to the Newspaper.

– Then we'll also have a discussion about the possible consequences if it turns out that we can't get hold of this information at all.
