Russia is again facing a possible Olympic ban after the World Anti-Doping Agency's Compliance Review Committee recommended yesterday that the Russian Anti-Doping Agency be ruled non-compliant.

The CRC put forward the recommendation after WADA's Intelligence and Investigations Committee found evidence of manipulation of data retrieved from a tainted Moscow laboratory in January.

A report along with the recommendation has been sent to the WADA executive committee which will discuss the findings at a meeting in Paris on December 9th.
