World Anti-Doping Agency Lifts Ban on Russia

The World Anti-Doping Agency lifted its ban on Russia Thursday.  WADA declared Russia's anti-doping agency non-compliant in 2015 after an  investigation uncovered  a widespread doping scandal.

That effectively banned athletes from competing under Russia's flag.

Because of that, dozens of Russian athletes  competed under  the Olympic flag at the 2018 games in PyeongChang.  The agency's decision allows Russia to return to worldwide competition, but there are a couple of conditions, including allowing international representatives to audit Russia's anti-doping laboratory.  WADA's decision was expected, but some countries spoke out against it.

The head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency  called the decision  "a devastating blow to the world’s clean athletes."
