Russia denies tampering with lab data

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s sports minister said on Thursday that concerns raised over a vast bank of Russian doping data being scrutinized for possible abuses were of a purely technical nature and that the data had not been tampered with.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has said it identified inconsistencies in laboratory data provided by Moscow earlier this year, potentially jeopardizing the country’s participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“Nothing was deleted... This is a purely technical question linked to the way the system’s work is organized,” Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov said.

Kolobkov’s comments came after Yuri Ganus, the head of Russian anti-doping agency RUSADA, said the data handed to WADA had been manipulated.
