LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND (DECEMBER 9, 2019) (REUTERS) NEWS CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRESIDENT OF WADA, CRAIG REEDIE, SAYING: "The consequences include the banning of Russia from the Olympics, Paralympics and World Championships run by all code signatories for four years and the banning of Russia hosting any of these major events within that timeframe. This is a ban against Russia that protects the rights of Russian athletes by allowing reentry for major events to those that are able to demonstrate that they are not implicated in any way by the noncompliance. The decision is designed to punish the guilty parties and send the message that it will not be tolerated. It stands strong against those who cheated the system whilst protecting those who did not." WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES (DECEMBER 9, 2019) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (English) TRAVIS TYGART, CEO OF U.S. ANTI-DOPING AGENCY, SAYING: "We've heard from athletes around the world and our own athletes who called for a complete ban at least for the 2020 games and the reason is this is now the third time that we've attempted to impose the same consequence to Russia's state-sponsored fraud and manipulation that has robbed clean athletes. You know maybe the first time you can understand and maybe the second time you can understand in Pyeongchang the winter games in 2018 we supported a neutral process for athletes but what we've seen is that has turned into a complete charade and mockery when you have a full delegation from Russia and we know the behavior has not changed. Here again the powers that be within Russia that initially pulled off this state-sponsored scheme continued to violate the agreements they entered into with the World Anti-Doping Agency and the sports community and the Olympic movement and continue to ensure that the coverup of that state-sponsored system still exists and so it simply can't repeat itself and we need to put in a consequence that's going to result in a change of behavior."
