RIO DE JANEIRO -- The split between Olympic leaders and global anti-doping officials over the Russian doping scandal continues to escalate.The World Anti-Doping Agency fired back on Monday, a day after International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach suggested the agency was to blame for the last-minute chaos over the participation of Russian athletes in the Rio de Janeiro Games.Bach said the agency should have acted sooner on evidence of state-sponsored doping rather than release the damning report by Canadian investigator Richard McLaren so close to the Games, which open on Friday.While it is destabilizing in the lead-up to the games, it is obvious, given the seriousness of the revelations that [McLaren] uncovered, that they had to be published and acted upon without delay, WADA president Craig Reedie, who is also an IOC vice president, said in a statement Monday.On Sunday, Bach defended the IOCs decision not to ban the entire Russian delegation from the Olympics, and said the IOC was not responsible for the timing of the latest WADA report, which came out on July 18.On July 24, the IOC placed the burden on international sports federations to determine if Russian athletes should be allowed to compete in Rio. More than 100 Russian athletes -- including the track and field team -- have been excluded, with more than 250 declared eligible by the federations so far.The IOC is not responsible for the timing of the McLaren report, Bach said. The IOC is not responsible for the fact that different information which was offered to WADA already a couple of years ago was not followed up. The IOC is not responsible for the accreditation or supervision of anti-doping laboratories.WADA -- which was created by the IOC in 1999 to lead the anti-doping fight, and receives half of its funding from the IOC -- issued a long statement defending its handling of the allegations against Russia.WADA understands that the timing of the McLaren Investigation Report has been destabilizing for a number of organizations as they prepare for the Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games, the statement said. However, WADA wishes to factually clarify that the agency acted immediately on allegations concerning Russia when it had corroborated evidence and the power to do so under the World Anti-Doping Code.WADA said it set up a commission headed by Dick Pound to investigate allegations of systematic doping made in a documentary by German broadcaster ARD in December 2014. The agency said it acquired new powers to investigate in January 2015.Pounds report, which was released in November 2015, detailed widespread cheating in track and field and led the IAAF to ban Russias entire team. Pound said he also found that doping in Russia was likely not restricted to track and field, and that Russian secret service officers were present in the Sochi and Moscow laboratories. But Pound said he did not uncover concrete evidence that the Russian government was manipulating doping controls.WADA said it acquired strong evidence of Russian state involvement in early May, when CBS 60 Minutes and The New York Times published allegations by Moscows former lab director, Grigory Rodchenkov. That led to McLarens investigation, which corroborated Rodchenkovs claims that dirty samples of Russian athletes were replaced with clean ones during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.Since then, WADA director general Olivier Niggli said, the agency facilitated the transfer of relevant information that is available to date about individual Russian athletes to the various international federations.It should be noted however that Professor McLarens focus thus far was on establishing involvement of the Russian State and not regarding individual athletes that may have benefited, Niggli said. WADA will continue supporting anti-doping organizations by providing information as and when it becomes available via McLarens ongoing Investigation.Responding to Bachs swipe about supervision of the Russian doping labs, WADA said its focus is on the technical abilities of the labs. It noted that it suspended the Moscow lab in 2015 after violations were cited in Pounds report.Addressing corruption within the anti-doping system -- including state or secret service interference in laboratory operations -- will be one of the topics discussed during a WADA conference in September, the agency said.

CHICAGO -- An Illinois high school football team that lost a playoff football game because officials made an incorrect call wont be in the state championship contest after a judge on Wednesday rejected its bid to overturn the outcome.Judge Kathleen Kennedy rejected an unusual lawsuit from Chicago suburban Fenwick High School seeking to reverse the Plainfield North High School victory Saturday. Fenwick said it would not appeal the decision.That sends Plainfield North High School to the Class A state title game Saturday against East St. Louis, but none of the parties involved was celebrating.Fenwick led the playoff game 10-7 and had the ball on fourth down on its own 15-yard line with four seconds left. The Fenwick quarterback heaved the ball downfield and used up the time left on the clock. Officials ruled the play to be intentional grounding, a penalty that gave Plainfield North the ball and one more play, which it used to kick a field goal and tie the game before winning 18-17 in overtime.The Illinois High School Association, which governs prep sports in the state, said the call was a mistake. The association apologized to Fenwick, but said there was no way for the school to appeal the outcome through the organization.In her ruling Wednesday, Kennedy cited an association bylaw that says officials decisions are final.The association argued that if Fenwick prevailed it could lead to a flood of lawsuits over incorrect decisions by officials.I wish there was a way that Fenwick could participate in the game, but theres not. Sometimes the law is not fair, David Bressler, an association attorney, argued in court.ddddddddddddFenwick principal Peter Groom said in a statement: We applaud the Plainfield North athletes and coaches for a well-played semi-final game, and we thank them for their continued sportsmanship and understanding.Plainfield North spokesman Tom Hernandez praised the decision but, in a printed statement, stressed: We reiterate our empathy for our friends from Fenwick High School and their supporters.Illinois association spokesman Matt Troha said he is not aware of a previous case in which a school in Illinois tried to use the courts to change the outcome of a high school sports event.In 2014, an Oklahoma judge declined a high schools request to have a football playoff game replayed after a referees mistake cost the schools team a touchdown. The judge expressed concern about a slippery slope that could lead to future litigation over wins and losses.The association said Wednesday that it will look for ways to try to prevent such problems in future, but it isnt yet clear what that will involve.There is no celebration and there are no winners in this circumstance. It is simply a resolution, the association said in an emailed statement. The Fenwick High School community has been dealt a pair of devastating blows over the past few days, while Plainfield North had a historic moment shrouded in controversy. ' ' '
