Wada whistleblower Rodchenkov discards some doping claims against Russia



“I have never given ‘Duchess’ doping cocktail to anyone and I haven’t seen how Russian athletes handed in “clear” urine samples to replace the “dirty” doping tests,” Grigory Rodchenkov, World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) whistleblower said during hearings at the Sports Arbitration Court (CAS).

So from the official source...
The list of the worst offenders was topped by Italy, whose athletes committed 147 violations over the course of 2016. Italy is followed by France and the US, which have 86 and 76 doping offences respectively. Australia, with 75 doping cases, and Belgium, with 73, are in fourth and fifth places in the report. Russia, which has repeatedly been accused of doping by Western countries, tied for sixth place with India, with 69 officially confirmed violations.
1 - Italy
2 - France & USA
3 - Australia
4 - Belgium

:D

WHAT?!?!

His evidence was considered vital to justify kicking some of these athletes out of the Olympics! And now he's effectively saying he made it up? How can he possibly live with himself???

So from the official source...

1 - Italy

3 - Australia
4 - Belgium

:D

May those 75 never be allowed even to touch a green and gold uniform again.

When evaluating information on the Internet today, one must check the source of the information to ascertain whether or not that source is credible.

http://kremlintrolls.com/t/20151213-eadaily.html
What part of the article do you wish to disprove?

Here is the part from the original source for you
317. In his oral evidence, Dr. Rodchenkov stated that he had never: (a) distributed the Duchess Cocktail; (b) seen an athlete take the Duchess Cocktail; (c) witnessed instructions being given to athletes and coaches to use the Duchess Cocktail; (d) seen an athlete give a clean urine sample; or (e) seen an athlete tamper with a doping sample. Dr. Rodchenkov did not indicate whether a benefit/risk analysis of the Duchess Cocktail was ever undertaken.

307. Under cross-examination, Dr. Rodchenkov was asked about a video from 2017, in which he was recorded saying “I do not give a **** about fighting the doping”; it was put to Dr. Rodchenkov that this comment reflected his true beliefs. While accepting that he had made this statement when speaking with a friend, Dr. Rodchenkov stated that it was made “in [an] emotional context”. Dr. Rodchenkov was also asked about a comment he had made about his diary from 2014, specifically, that it represented “millions of dollars in my bag”. Dr. Rodchenkov replied that he was joking when he said this.
Some of McLAren's comments are pure gold, so many inconsistencies.

331. Prof. McLaren added that since Dr. Rodchenkov was under the FBI witness protection programme, he was aware that if he failed to be truthful to Prof. McLaren this could jeopardise his ability to remain in the United States. This was “a powerful incentive to his being reliable and credible”. For all these reasons, Prof. McLaren considered Dr. Rodchenkov to be “a credible witness” whose description of the Sochi sample-swapping scheme could be relied on.

335. The authorities in the United States imposed certain conditions in respect of Prof. McLaren’s ability to communicate with Dr. Rodchenkov and to access his documents. This included the undertaking that Prof. McLaren would not provide access to the electronic data files of Dr. Rodchenkov to any third parties, and that there would not be any transcripts of Prof. McLaren’s interviews of Dr. Rodchenkov. Prof. McLaren testified that he “had to agree” on these conditions and that he “wasn’t in a position to negotiate” them. He did not feel comfortable in answering the Panel’s question as to the identity of the U.S. authorities in question.

338. Prof. McLaren expained that he had not sought to obtain access to the original versions of those 18 pages because he was confident that Dr. Rodchenkov’s lawyers were not supplying fraudulent documents to the investigation. Prof. McLaren confirmed that he had not sought to obtain information about the writing in the diary – for example whether it was written in pencil or ink – and had not sought to have the copies of the diary authenticated since he had decided that it would not be relied on in the investigation. However, the Panel pointed out a reference to Dr. Rodchenkov’s diaries at page 55 of the First McLaren Report, which in particular served as basis for the material statement that the Russian Sports Minister Mutko took part in the alleged doping scheme. Prof. McLaren was not able to explain the inconsistency of his testimony, nor why he used the excerpts of the diaries, of which the authenticity had not been tested, and without review of the full version of the diaries, in relation to the material allegation in the First McLaren Report that, “excerpts from Dr. Rodchenkov’s diary reflect several meetings with Minister Mutko in the month prior to and during Sochi Games. Dr. Rodchenkov’s evidence is that the doping cover up plan for Sochi was discussed at those meetings”.
