WADA to remove Isynbayeva from anti-doping position in Russia

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will remove former Russian pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva from a key anti-doping position in Russia because she is a barrier to the country's compliance with the WADA code.

The double Olympic champion has been critical of the punishment of Russian athletes over evidence of state-sponsored doping in the country. She was one of those banned from taking part in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Russia has until November to comply, or those athletes will remain suspended. Chairman of WADAa's Compliance and Review Committee says Isinbayeva will be removed by the end of the month.
