After the decision of the IOC on 24 July concerning the Russian athletes who will take part in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and due to the short time, the IHF reacted immediately by sending a letter to the Russian Handball Federation to collect whereabouts information in order to conduct out-of-competition tests of the Russian women’s team participating in the 2016 Olympic Games. The samples will be analysed by one of the WADA accredited laboratories which will integrate the results directly in the ADAMS.


The International Handball Federation would like to highlight the full cooperation with the IOC and WADA and that we will do our utmost efforts to provide full transparency and to keep handball clean.
