MOSCOW (AP) — Russia and the World Anti-Doping Agency are once again at loggerheads as Russia tries to get its national drug-testing agency reinstated so it can make a full return to track and field. Russia is objecting to WADA's demand that it accept the findings of a report that accused its officials of overseeing a mass doping cover-up. The dispute comes a day before the start of the track and field world championships in London, which will feature 19 Russians officially competing as "neutral athletes." Many others are prevented from competing because of past doping offenses.
