Jared Tallent Talks Bribes And Drugs In Sport

Former CEO of Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, Richard Ings, weighs in on the report that has shaken the athletics world and could see Russia excluded from the 2016 Rio Olympics. 

‘There are multiple allegations, one that samples collected  were destroyed by the Moscow laboratory which has since been de-certified, in fact a second time that laboratory has been de-certified,’ Mr Ings says. 

But even more troubling, allegations that the Russians ran a secret laboratory which would pre test samples, determine if they were positive or not, and intercept ones that were positive before they got into the WADA controlled analytical space,’ he added.
