Switzerland: IOC Executive Board three-day meeting kicks off in Lausanne

Switzerland, Lausanne
December 03, 2019 at 10:23 GMT +00:00 · Published

The first day of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board meeting kicked off at Olympic House in Lausanne on Tuesday.

The meeting will focus on a number of reports, with the anti-doping report topping the agenda of this year's final gathering of the IOC ruling body. The summit is taking place just six days ahead of the crucial WADA Executive Committee's meeting, which is expected to announce a decision on the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).

Earlier last week, the IOC released a statement condemning the "manipulation of the Moscow laboratory data before it was transferred to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in January 2019," saying it will "support the toughest sanctions against all those responsible."

Russia's Sports Ministry rejected allegations that state authorities were involved in a cover up, offering its assistance to anti-doping bodies.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board's meeting will run from 3 to 5 December 2019.
