"McLaren is now saying the goal was never to identify specific individuals. That is not correct. His specific mandate was “to identify any athlete that might have benefited from those alleged manipulations to conceal positive doping tests.”
So this is one of the big travesties here that McLaren had the mandate to investigate this, find out who is guilty, and do some appropriate punishment. Instead, he’s cast suspicion on the entire Russian Olympic team and now the Paralympic team, instead of doing what he was supposed to do."
"So this accusation that it is all state-sponsored – let’s see the evidence of that. Because identifying some people who were cheating or identifying some government officials who got a kickback or some coaches who were banned but are still kind of fictitiously doing some coaching – that proves some violations of policies, that does not prove a state-sponsored violation or state-sponsored open rejection of WADA."
