Russia thwarts drug-testing efforts

THE push to kick Russia out of this year's Rio Olympics was strengthened yesterday when the World Anti-Doping Agency revealed it had been stymied in its efforts to test the country's athletes for drugs.

WADA said in a report more than 736 tests of Russian athletes had been declined or cancelled between February 15 and May 29 for a variety of reasons, including intimidation of testers and threats of expulsion from the country.

Already banned from competing over systemic doping, Russia learns today whether it will be able to go to Rio.
