International Ski Federation (FIS) President Gian Franco Kasper does not see it as WADAâ€™s place to offer such punishments.
â€œSanctioning entire countries is purely political and I do not agree with this,â€ Kasper told Insidethegames. â€œWADA should not be a body which gives sanctions.â€
He also did not appear optimistic about the future of clean sport.
â€œWe need to stop pretending sport is clean,â€ he told New York Times reporter Rebecca Ruiz. â€œItâ€™s a noble principle, but in practice? Itâ€™s entertainment. Itâ€™s drama.â€
Russia, which is currently non-compliant with the WADA Code, is hosting World Cups in multiple ski and snowboard disciplines later this season, and FIS has made no public show of moving them.
