WADA suspects that 300 athletes from Russia had previously taken illegal drugs, and they are all active and are still. This applies to both winter sports and summer, and some of these athletes may compete at the Olympics-2018. Information organization supposedly based on the database of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory in which it is noted that these athletes in the period from 2012 to 2015 passed negative doping tests, reports Inside The Games.

The entire list was transmitted not only to the international Olympic Committee (IOC), but in the 25 sports federations, which will be provided with all the data on these athletes.

Recall that on 5 December at the meeting of the IOC Executive Committee decided to suspend the Russian team from the Olympic games in Pyeongchang, however, some athletes will be able to compete at the Olympics under a neutral flag. This will happen if they will meet all the criteria of the organization.
