WADA Informant Rodchenkov Attempted to Commit Suicide in Washington – Source

SPUTNIK – In 2016, Grigory Rodchenkov, who had been director of Russia’s national anti-doping laboratory in 2015, told The New York Times that at least 15 Russian Olympic medalists had been part of an alleged state-run doping program and his testimony became a basis for the WADA independent commission’s report on doping in Russian athletics.

According to a source in US law enforcement, the informant attempted to commit suicide on June 19.

“We received information about Grigory Rodchenkov’s suicide attempt on June 19 in a Washington flat rented out for him by the FBI in district Columbia,” the source said.

Grigory Rodchenkov became WADA’s main witness in the case against the Russian national Olympic team over doping allegations; he claimed he that had organized switching urine samples for clean ones and also committed to giving athletes a doping Duchess Cocktail. As a result, 43 Russian athletes were banned for life and the Russian team faced harsh restrictions during the Olympic Games, despite the fact, there was no evidence other than his statements.

However, he later retracted a major part of his accusations against the Russian athletes, claiming that he had never distributed the Duchess Cocktail, seen an athlete taking the mixture, or “tampering with a doping sample.”
