Rodchenkov Urges Sports Authorities to Take Action on Russian Doping

"Grigory Rodchenkov has urged sports authorities not to "sweep Russia’s transgressions under the rug" and called for strong sanctions for the doping regime he helped engineer.

Rodchenkov claimed that he left Russia two days after a "friend within the Government" warned him that his "suicide" was being planned.

This came shortly after the mysterious deaths of two former Russian Anti-Doping Agency heads: Nikita Kamayev and Vyacheslav Sinev. 

Rodchenkov later helped filmmaker Bryan Fogel make Icarus, a film which helped uncover the extent of the problem of doping in Russia. " - via Inside The Games
