Russia banned for four years to include 2020 Olympics and 2022 World Cup

9 December 2019 | Olympics

Russia has been handed a four-year ban from all major sporting events by the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada).

It means the Russia flag and anthem will not be allowed at events such as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and football's 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

But athletes who can prove they are untainted by the doping scandal will be able to compete under a neutral flag.

Wada's executive committee made the unanimous decision in a meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.

2. I agree

He'll tweet something attacking those involved in doing this to Putin claiming they are corrupt. Anything to muddy up anything that'll expose him more today , and this week, and in defense of Putin.
