Putin calls on Russians to play by doping rules for Olympics


 
 
(businessmirror.com.ph) MOSCOW—Vladimir Putin wants Russian athletes and officials to play by anti-doping rules ahead of next year’s Olympics.
 
In televised comments on Wednesday, the Russian president said efforts should be made “so that we don’t give any pretext to those who use sport for political ends, to act against Russia’s interests.”
 
Russia’s team was barred from last year’s Winter Olympics for repeated doping violations, but 168 competitors from the country were allowed to compete as “Olympic Athletes from Russia.”
 
Of those, two were later disqualified for doping, more than any other country.
