” On the situation with doping control in the Russian Federation Armwrestling

Against the background of doping scandals Athletics Federation and the Moscow laboratory wish once again to talk about the situation with doping control in the Russian Federation Armwrestling.
Serious measures to combat doping, we have begun to take two years ago. Then the Russian arm wrestling was on the brink of relegation from the International Federation for numerous violations of anti-doping rules. These measures proved to be quite effective and as a result – in the last two years we have had virtually no problems with doping in the international arena. By the way, answering those who think that it is impossible to win without doping, note that its leadership, in spite of this, our team has not lost.
The results are certainly positive, but too early to relax. The fight against the use of illicit drugs in the Russian arm wrestling will continue. At the moment we are negotiating with RUSADA to conduct doping controls in the upcoming championship and the championship of Russia and on the number of doping tests.
Russian Anti-Doping Agency, in turn, also has been working to strengthen the fight against doping in order to avoid similar doping scandals in the future. For example, in the past year it has been increased period of ineligibility (now the first period of Ineligibility is 4 years). In addition, the State Duma a bill on criminal liability of athletes and their coaches for the use of illicit drugs and, given the way our government likes to tighten the screws, it is likely that such a law will be adopted.
You can have different attitudes to these initiatives, but, I think, it is better to speak pure than to stake his entire career, and perhaps even freedom.
I wish you all a fair fight and victories in 2016!
