In July, a WADA commission led by McLaren presented a report based on the investigation results, in which Russia was accused of running a state-wide doping programme. It urged the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to consider a blanket ban on the entire Russian team, reports Sputnik.

On July 24, the IOC decided against imposing a blanket ban on all Russian athletes.

“Professor Richard H. McLaren announces that he expects to release the ‘McLaren Investigation Report, Part II’, in early December 2016. More details will follow in the weeks ahead,” WADA said in a statement on Wednesday.
