Montreal : Sep 23 (IANS) The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on Monday revealed that Russian officials handed over data which contained "inconsistencies".
According to a BBC report, WADA has now opened compliance proceedings against the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (Rusada).
Before the data was passed on, WADA suspects that it was manipulated.
In their bid to reintegrate back into the sporting fold after being suspended for state-sponsored doping programme, Russia were asked to hand over data from its Moscow laboratory to show that it complied with global anti-doping rules.
WADA said its executive committee "was informed that further investigation of inconsistencies in Moscow laboratory data had led WADA to open a formal compliance procedure against Rusada", the BBC report said.
