"Some international federations have kept up investigations, for example in biathlon a probe is being carried out against six athletes, and was halted against 22. In cross-country skiing, an investigation persists against six athletes, but the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) recently ruled that starting from November 1 these athletes may take part in competitions and the temporary suspension was lifted. The same situation is in the troubled track and field athletics: they spoke about 50 athletes (under inquiry), but an investigation is being conducted against five."
"So, it is absolutely clear that information in McLarenâ€™s report and related documents is incomplete and in many cases not true and cannot serve as grounds for recognizing that an athlete violated anti-doping rules," he stressed.
"No Russian athlete has so far been disqualified over the report," he emphasized. "As of today, out of more than 1,000 Russian athletes mentioned in the report no one has been found guilty and has been disqualified due on the report. This is a fact."
