International Intrigue, Doping and Diaries

DEVELOPING: The New York Times has seen the journals of Grigory Rodchenkov, the former director of Russia’s antidoping lab, and the IOC is very interested in their contents. 

More from Rebecca Ruiz:

“On Feb. 3, four days before the Sochi Games began, Rodchenkov’s preparations culminated with his presentation to Mutko, the sports minister. In a meeting at Mutko’s office at the local organizing committee’s headquarters, Rodchenkov wrote that day, he had handed Mutko a copy of the “Duchess list,” naming the dozens of Russian Olympians who were ingesting the drug cocktail and would have their incriminating urine swapped out with their prestocked clean urine.”
