Germany, Austria demand complete Russia ban for 2018 Winter Games

Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - The national anti-doping agencies from Germany and Austria on Monday demanded a complete ban for Russia at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

"We demanded that already for the Summer Olympics in Rio, and our opinion has not changed," Andrea Gotzmann, chairwoman of the German NADA, told the German state TV channel ARD.

"The Winter Games will take place in about one-and-a-half years and you must say here as well that the Russian state has thwarted and cheated the anti-doping system," Gotzmann said following a joint press conference by the German and Austrian NADAs in Rio.

"Therefore we must demand a ban on participation for Pyeongchang as well."

Richard McLaren, who is investigating in Russia for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), reported a widespread and state-sponsored doping scheme in Russia, and said that the control lab at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi swapped postive doping samples of Russian athletes for clean ones.

"The situation is only worsening," said Michael Cepic, managing director of the Austrian NADA. "The structures cannot be changed overnight. Therefore we demand a complete suspension for 2018."

Russia escaped a blanket ban for Rio from the IOC and has 278 athletes competing after being cleared by their international federations and the International Olympic Committee. But the International Paralympic Committee Sunday imposed a full ban on Russia for the upcoming Rio Paralympics.
