• Usada chief calls for complete ban of Russian athletes from Olympics

The World Anti-Doping Agency "must get tougher" and ban all Russian athletes from competing at the Olympics, says US Anti-Doping Agency chief Travis Tygart.

World Athletics, formerly the IAAF, has halted Russia's reinstatement after senior officials were suspended for anti-doping rule breaches.

Russia has been banned from competing as a nation in athletics since 2015.

Some athletes have been able to compete under a neutral status, including at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics.

"Wada must get tougher and impose the full restriction on Russian athlete participation in the Olympics that the rules allow," said Tygart.
