    This could be interesting to watch.

    Unable (or unwilling) to go after those in Russia behind the systematice doping regime, 3 cyclists go after WADA and McLaren.

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out, as they have already lost a CAS appeal. Filed in a Canadian court.

    " Three Russian cyclists have taken legal action against the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) and Canadian doping investigator Dr Richard McLaren.

    Kirill Sveshnikov, Dmitry Strakhov and Dmitry Sokolov were unable to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympics after Russian athletes were banned.

    The McLaren report, an independent study commissioned by Wada, found evidence ofstate-sponsored doping .

    The cyclists allege they were "unfairly implicated". "

    Why did WADA go after Essendon players but let Russian drug cheats go unpunished?

    IF only the Essendon players had been Russians.

    The banned Bombers players would have been free to play in the 2016 season, and Jobe Watson would have kept his Brownlow.

    The New York Times reporter Rebecca R. Ruiz has revealed how WADA has let 95 Russians get away with doping despite having ‘mountainous evidence of Russia’s doping scheme’.

    Ruiz’s article suggests WADA simply did not have the appetite to pursue the Russian athletes.

    Despite knowing tainted urine samples were destroyed, WADA did not take the next step and look for non-analytical evidence.
