Yelena Isinbayeva urged to stand down from Russia anti-doping agency role

People walk out of the Russian Olympic Committee headquarters in Moscow Russia

The information has been confirmed by WADA Deputy Director General Rob Koehler, the Insidethegames media outlet reported.

The WADA Independent Commission carried out an investigation of the activities of RUSADA, the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF), the Moscow anti-doping laboratory and the Russian Sports Ministry, and announced the results of the probe on November 9, 2015.

Countries failing to meet a new uniform code of anti-doping practices will face sanctions in the same way athletes do, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced.

Since the two-time Olympic pole vault champion stopped competing previous year, Isinbayeva has become an International Olympic Committee member and sits on the Russian Olympic Committee board.

Valerie Fourneyron, chairman of WADA's Medical Committee, headed a working group to study the creation of the new testing agency. From there, WADA regulations call for a three-month wait until the rules go on the books.

In honor of the original Golf GTI that debuted four decades ago, VW is spreading the GTI love to a new model. Acceleration from standstill to "hundreds" takes 8.8 seconds, top speed of almost 200 kilometers per hour.

The global anti-doping body WADA may allow the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) to resume its operations under worldwide supervision as early as this November, the WADA chief has said, TASS reports.

Isinbayeva had been sharply critical of the McLaren report, claiming it unfairly targeted Russian Federation in what she described as a "political act".

With the Winter Games nine months away, the International Olympic Committee is in the middle of two investigations based on information from a report by Richard McLaren. WADA has given Russian Federation a lengthy list of reforms needed to regain its compliance with global anti-doping standards, one of which was Isinbayeva's removal.

It appears any decision about Russia's eligibility for Pyeongchang will be made under current rules.
