Russian Cyclists File Lawsuit Against WADA and Canada’s Richard McLaren Over Doping Reports


September 12, 2017 – A $7 million lawsuit has been filed by three Russian cyclists against the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren reports the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star. Kirill Sveshnikov, Dmitry Strakhov and Dmitry Sokolov allege that they were wrongly associated with cheaters and doping in the now famous McLaren Reports and claim they were prevented from reaching “…our life-long goal of participating in the Rio Olympics” due to a “rushed and compromised investigation.” McLaren says he’s ready to defend himself but says no lawsuit has yet been served while a WADA spokesperson offered no comment as the case is pending.
