Statement on The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Decision to Ban Russia from Taking Part in the Next Two Olympic Games:
Finally, Russia’s many doping and obstruction sins will now get some of the punishment they richly deserve. For far too long, Russia has weaponized doping fraud and state-sponsored criminal activity as a tool of foreign policy. Let every corrupt nation that tries to play from Russia’s illicit playbook take heed of today’s monumental decision. When doping conspiracies become a crime under the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act, cheaters will be in U.S. prisons and clean athletes will be better protected.
– Jim Walden, lawyer for Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, December 9, 2019
