Rus­sian Anti-Dop­ing Agency (Rusada) can now plan and co­or­di­nate test­ing, the World Anti-Dop­ing Agency said yes­ter­day. Rusada can use its trained dop­ing con­trol of­fi­cers, un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Wada-ap­pointed in­ter­na­tional ex­perts and the Bri­tish Anti-Dop­ing Agency, a Wada state­ment said. In 2015, the Rus­sian agency was branded non-com­pli­ant, and Wada said in May Rus­sia would re­main an out­cast un­til four key de­mands are met. Chief among them was Ye­lena Is­in­bayeva’s re­moval from Rusada and her re­place­ment with an in­de­pen­dent chair­per­son.
