The cooperation between the IOC and Prof. McLaren, as indicated in the report, will continue. The IOC appreciates Prof. McLarens commitment to support the two Commissions set up by the IOC on 19 July 2016.
The IOC has already established two commissions to prepare the appropriate sanctions and measures:
- An Inquiry Commission, chaired by the former President of Switzerland, Samuel Schmid, is addressing the institutional conspiracy across summer and winter sports athletes who participated with Russian officials within the Ministry of Sport and its infrastructure, such as RUSADA, CSP and the Moscow Laboratory along with the FSB, in particular with regard to the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014.
- A Disciplinary Commission, chaired by IOC Member Denis Oswald, is addressing the question of doping and manipulation of samples concerning the Russian athletes who participated in the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014. In the context of this Disciplinary Commission, all the samples of all Russian athletes who participated in Sochi will be re-analysed. The re-analysis will be to establish whether there was doping or whether the samples themselves were manipulated.
The IOC has extended the mandate of the Oswald Commission to examine all samples collected from Russian athletes during the Olympic Games London 2012, following the findings of todays completed IP Report. Re-analysis of some of these samples is already underway following intelligence provided by Prof. McLaren to the IOC. Eleven Russian athletes have already been sanctioned by the IOC as a result of the IOCs own re-analysis programme, which began prior to the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and is ongoing.
