Noah Hoffman: Reduction in sanctions against Russia highlights need for anti-doping reform

Last week, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decided a case between the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). WADA was, supposedly, defending clean athletes - holding Russia accountable for the most recent effort to undermine clean sport. However, the global anti-doping regulator appears to be fighting with, rather than against, Russia. Based on statements and actions, WADA appears to be most interested in sweeping the entire Russian doping saga under the rug.
