Russian Federation anti-doping body to 'continue its work' after WADA ban

WADA refuses to lift Russia suspension Winter Olympics ban looms large

"We are preparing for the Olympic Games", he added.

On Thursday, the WADA Foundation Board held a meeting in Seoul.

The IOC executive board will meet December 5-6 in Lausanne, Switzerland, where on the first day it will hear reports from two separate commissions it tasked in July 2016 with probing alleged state-sanctioned doping and manipulation of PED testing in Russian sports, particularly at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The WADA ruling is a "road to nowhere", Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko said, according to the state-run Tass news service. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)'s decision not to reinstate Russian anti-doping agency RUSADA was expected and had been nearly announced beforehand, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS. Russian athletes will be able to take part in the Winter Games if the International Olympic Committee acts in line with its own regulations, he said.

The power of the Semi also allows it to go 65mph (104kph) up 5% grades thanks to its four independent motors on rear axles. Musk has said Tesla is also working on a pickup truck and a lower-cost SUV and negotiating a new factory in China.

Russia's sports authorities patiently continue holding dialogue with worldwide sports organizations for further cooperation with the global Olympic Committee, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

WADA has told Russian Federation to "publicly accept" the report's findings and allow access to urine samples at its Moscow anti-doping laboratory.

"These two demands are obviously political", Russian Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov said in Seoul, Tass reported. The global anti-doping body this week refused to reinstate Russia's anti-doping agency for the third year straight.
