DIF shelves punishment to Russia: the Need for strong signal

the Danish Idrætsforbunds (DIF) director, Morten Mølholm Hansen, is pleased with The International anti-doping agency (Wada) has decided to exclude Russia from international sporting events in the four years of dopingfusk.

as Seen with our glasses is a fine, severe punishment, which we think is in his place. We are happy that Wada acting unanimously.

- All agree to send a very strong signal to the russians, who basically has powered games with the us in recent years, says Morten Mølholm Hansen.

With the exclusion goes to Russia as a nation miss out on among other things, the OLYMPICS in 2020 and the winter OLYMPICS in 2022, but the Russian athletes can make up under a neutral flag, if they can prove their innocence.

no matter is it a very hard blow to Russia, as a sporting nation, and therefore felt Mølholm also not sure that the Wadas executive committee would follow the recommendation from an expert advice on the four years of exclusion.

- I had at least hoped for it, but you never know with international politics. Russia is a great and mighty nation, and idrætsnation, so you could not know, what there was of interest. But it looks good, " says Mølholm.

the Case, however, can not be closed completely. Russia may, within three weeks choose to appeal the verdict.

- I will shoot at, that the russians are appealing to The International court of arbitration for sport, CAS, and therefore we have probably not heard the last of the case, but this is a good start, says the DIF director.
