So what happens now? If these findings are true, does it mean that Russian athletes will be banned from upcoming Olympics. Or what other punishment can be levied? These are serious allegations, and the head of the international Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach is asking that those involved be given lifetime bans, and the IOC president is also asking that all Russian samples from the London and Sochi Games be retested.

"Professor McLaren's completed report demonstrates a fundamental attack on the integrity of sport. For me as an Olympic, any athlete or official who took part in such a sophisticated manipulation system should be excluded for life from any participation in the Olympic Games in whatever capacity. . Another specially formed commission is already underway and is addressing the system behind these manipulations contained in the report of Professor McLaren," said Thomas Bach.
