The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has identified suspicious doping tests in 298 Russian athletes. Studies of 43 athletes have already revised and sent the results to the national federations. This is reported on the agency website.

WADA’s head of investigation, Gunter Younger, noted the ongoing collaboration with international sports federations and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).

WADA continues to make good progress in this long and difficult business. The fact that we have moved to the results management phase means that we are one step closer to bringing to justice those who have deceived [adopted doping]. This is an excellent development for pure sports and athletes around the world.
