Berlin (dpa) - Athletes have welcomed the outcome of an investigation into state-controlled doping in Russia.

The athlete committee of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said the findings of a WADA investigation were "truly shocking" and that Russia "should be banned" from the Rio Olympics.

The committee, chaired by Canadian cross-country skier Beckie Scott, said it was "deeply upset to read of the unprecedented levels of doping and subversion that have taken place in Russia."

Germany‘s discus Olympic champion Robert Harting told dpa Tuesday: "I‘m so happy. This is an insane success."

He described the result of the investigation as "important for all anti-doping fighters and athletes who largely give up their freedom to join the anti-doping movement."

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) executive board was set to hold a telephone conference Tuesday to decide what steps to take after the publication Monday of the WADA investigation carried out by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren.

Following the report WADA Monday requested "collective sanctions for Rio 2016 and beyond." It recommended the IOC consider excluding all Russian athletes from the Rio Games, which begin on August 5.

In its statement, the WADA athlete committee said: "We would like to highlight our belief that WADA must allow Professor McLaren and his team to continue their investigation, that Russia should be banned from the Rio Olympics, Paralympics, and other international events, and that International Federations must enact sanctions so as to protect clean sport."
