WADA again in Russia
World Anti-Doping Agency WADA has sent back its five-member independent team, led by Anton Pascual, to take a stock of doping samples of sportsmen from a former laboratory in Moscow for further analysis. The team should also gain access to the database of this (currently closed) workplace. The first attempt by the WADA experts, which was due to take place in accordance with the resolution of its Executive Committee by 31 December 2018, failed.
Making all materials made available from this laboratory is a prerequisite for Russia to be declared a country that works in full accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code and its standards, so that their athletes can participate in any sporting event without restrictions, including the Olympic games, other championships and world cups. Russia would also have the chance to ask for organizing major sporting events in its territory. In the event of a positive verdict of the WADA Executive Committee, the Russian anti-doping organization RUSADA would then start its activities in full.
Change in the appointment of the Expert Council
For the outgoing Mgr. David Opatrný became PaedDr as a new member on 13 December 2018. Ladislav Malý.

On November 24, 2018, at the age of 78, she died of a long-term director of anti-doping laboratories in Prague and also a former member of the Council of Experts of ADV ČR MUDr. Růžena Šlechtová.
Honor her memory!

Olympism in Action Award
Vice-Chairman of the Council of Experts and Ombudsman of WWTP JUDr. Alexander Károlyi took over on 10 December 2018 from the chairman of WWTP Ing. George Kejval's award for sport and Olympics.
JUDr. Károlyi has been a sports official for more than 40 years, and his activities are most associated with football, where he has been working for more than 30 years in the Disciplinary Commission and later as its chairman.
Doping in Kenya
Independent investigators led by Gunther Yoon from WADA after a more than two-year investigation confirmed a long-known presumption that Kenyan runners at the middle and long distances were involved with doping. The same was true of other East African athletes from neighboring countries.
The situation has greatly improved with the help of Norwegian and British experts and Commissioners who have begun to take place on the spot. They introduced regular out-of-competition subscriptions to these athletes and opened an anti-doping laboratory licensed by WADA to analyze blood samples mainly in the capital Kenya - Nairobi. Last but not least, an independent national anti-doping organization ADAK has been established, which is currently taking over some powers from the British and the Norwegians.
Doping practices in this area were not sophisticated and coordinated by any government system or organization.
