Russian sports leaders fight over doping data breach

FILE - In this Feb. 5, 2018 file photo, Russia's sports minister Pavel Kolobkov attends a press conference in Moscow, Russia. Speeches by representatives from the U.S. and Russia delivered Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019, in Poland, illustrated the wide gap in perceptions about the Russian doping scandal that has upended Olympic sports. U.S. Anti-Doping Agency head Travis Tygart said Russia can no longer be allowed to steal medals from clean athletes. A few minutes later, Kolobkov said Russia has paid the price for its misdeeds and should be welcomed back into the fold. Russia is under threat of missing the Tokyo Olympics.
