The World Anti-Doping Agency ignored a confessional plea from an Olympic athlete from Russia in 2012, The New York Times reported on Wednesday. Silver medal-winning discus thrower Darya Pishchalnikova reportedly sent an email to the anti-doping authorities admitting she had taken prohibited drugs, as directed by Russian authorities, and that she could provide information on widespread doping practices among Russian athletes. “I want to cooperate with WADA,” the email reportedly said. In return, the Times reported, the WADA did not investigate or help out. Instead, they referred her email back to Russian authorities.
