Russia accused of “state-sponsored doping”, possible ban from Olympics

(WIAT) — The Olympic dreams of Russia’s 2016 team may be over. A ban is being considered after Russia was accused Monday of years of “state-sponsored doping”.

Russian president Vladimir Putin reacted to the report by claiming that “accusations against Russian athletes are based on the testimony of one person, a man with a scandalous reputation.”

The Russian track and field team is already banned, but that decision is being contested. A decision is expected by the end of the week.
