"In a few days we will have the results of the first 50 bottles, and then we can proceed", he said.

Those included "a systematic effort to interview Russian athletes, officials and other witnesses exposed by the McLaren Report as having been potentially involved in the doping conspiracy" as well as turning over electronic data, "including servers, testing instrument data files, computer files, and email and text message archives from the time period of the Russian conspiracy, as outlined in the McLaren report".

According to the newspaper, the experts of WADA finished the review of cases of 96 athletes, of which only one case was found to be sufficient evidence of doping. "This is especially unfair when athletes are punished when they violate the rules", the statement said.

A World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) commission in 2015 found that more than 1,000 Russian competitors in more than 30 sports were involved in a conspiracy to hide positive drug tests over a period of five years.

Zhukov said in a statement that candidates for the Russian Olympic team will be subject to additional doping tests in the build-up to Pyeongchang.

Earlier this week, IOC president Thomas Bach said the committee was awaiting word from Brazilian authorities before determining next steps.

"This takes the total of gold medal events to 102? making it the largest number of events ever contested at an Olympic Winter Games to date", organisers said. The other report about whether state-sponsored doping exists, as shown in both McLaren's research and a previous investigation by International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound is also on track to be done before the Olympics. "I understand it takes a lot of time, but we can not have this discussion just before the Pyeongchang Games. It must be clear months before", said Camiel Eurlings, a committee member from the Netherlands. "Now, several years later, remains too little evidence", said WADA Director General Olivier Niggli (eng.lang.).

Hamas to dissolve government for Palestinian unity
Hoping to pressure Hamas to relinquish control of Gaza, Abbas has cut payments to Israel for the electricity it supplies to Gaza. Last blow: ostracized by its arab neighbors of Qatar, main financier of islamist movement in palestine.

Beginning previous year, Russian athletes were constantly under the gun due to numerous doping abuse accusations.

Six skiers who have been banned from competing following the WADA report, will be the first to be dealt with by Oswald, with the skiing season starting soon.

"We are very happy with the news, as both countries have a long-standing tradition and history of success in equestrian, so spectator support will be phenomenal", he said.

"We notice endless work aimed to recheck our samples, to study the so-called political part of the [McLaren] report - whether or not there was [political] influence". In another report, International Olympic Committee member Craig Reedie, who heads the World Anti-Doping Agency, said progress is being made toward reinstating Russia's suspended anti-doping agency.

"We see the sport is really growing and we are looking forward to further develop the sport in China along with the Chinese Equestrian Association", he added.

According to him, the global federations will have a more active participation in the organization and delivery of the Games than they had in the past.
