Suggestions that the release of draft letters urging Russias total ban from the Olympics have compromised the investigation into Russian doping are nonsense, an international anti-doping leader said Sunday. Chris Pronger Jersey .The Institute of National Anti-Doping Agencies is one of a handful of anti-doping and athletes groups to draft letters calling for the ban. They plan to send the letters to the International Olympic Committee only if the investigation, due out Monday, reveals evidence of state-sponsored doping throughout Russian sports.A group of Olympic leaders, including IOC members and swimmings international federation, have released statements suggesting that the draft letters have undermined the credibility of investigator Richard McLarens report.It is very disappointing to see prominent Olympic stakeholders attempting to get another family member banned from the Olympic Games in this rather underhand way, said Spyros Capralos, president of Greeces Olympic committee.But iNADO CEO Joseph de Pencier said his organization has neither communicated with McLaren nor tried to influence his work; he said he had no knowledge of any iNADO members contacting McLaren, either.The back-and-forth this weekend about the draft letters illustrates the stakes of McLarens report and the IOCs reaction to it.Anti-doping leaders and groups of athletes are calling for a full Russian ban from the upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro if McLarens report substantiates and expands on preliminary findings that already have been released. Meanwhile, IOC president Thomas Bach says a balance must be struck between collective responsibility and individual justice.Preliminary findings from the report, released in June as part of a probe into the Russian track team, which already has been suspended from the games, said there was mandatory state-directed manipulation of laboratory analytical results operating within the Moscow anti-doping lab from at least 2011 through the summer of 2013. Those findings also said Russias Ministry of Sport advised the laboratory which of its adverse findings it could report to WADA, and which it had to cover up.The planned Monday release of the report comes 18 days before the start of the Summer Olympics.A statement sent Sunday by swimmings governing body, FINA, said the iNADO and other letters were based on the findings of the McLaren Report, which is meant to have been independent and confidential. Such breaches of confidentiality and the perception of a breach of independence of the report undermine its credibility.Zlatko Matesa, president of Croatias Olympic Committee, said the premature movement to ban Russia is not in the Olympic spirit and casts a shadow over the integrity of the McLaren report.But dePencier said iNADO had no more information than anyone else.Like iNADO, sport organizations and anti-doping organizations of all sorts have been planning for days for the possibility of the worse-case scenario, and having appropriate responses prepared, hoping they will not be needed, he said.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Wilson contributed to this report. Cheap Stitched Blues Jerseys .

LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Antonio Vargas, who represented the United States in the flyweight division at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, signed a multiyear promotional contract with Top Rank on Wednesday.Vargas, a 20-year-old who resides in Ocala, Florida, will make his pro debut on a date to be determined in February, Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti told ESPN.We had a lot of offers from promoters from all over the world and we were considering several of them when Top Rank made their offer, Vargas said. Its a dream come true to be signed by Top Rank.Vargas, who is ambidextrous, was 123-7 as an amateur. He would like to fight early on as a junior bantamweight, but probably will be a bantamweight soon.My first couple of fights as a pro, if I can, I want to fight at 115 [pounds], get a little title shot, then move up to 118, Vargas said. But Im growing. I remember in the amateurs, at the Olympics, making 114 was really hard for me. But if I cant make 115, Ill fight at 118 for my first couple of fights.I like to bring the fight, Vargas said of his style. I can box -- I can be nice -- but I just love to throw punches and let the fans see a good fight. Ive been working with my trainer, Tito Ocasio, the last couple of months now, since I came back from the Olympics. Hes more of a professional-style coachh. Martin Brodeur Jersey. Hes trained several world champions. I decided to train with him because hes one of the best professional coaches in Florida right now.At the Olympics, Vargas lost to eventual gold-medal winner Shakhobidin Zoirov of Uzbekistan in their second-round match at 114 pounds.Antonio is an extremely gifted amateur who will flourish in the pro ranks, Moretti said. Combine that with his popularity in the Central Florida region, where Top Rank will be promoting numerous shows with our partners All-Star Boxing, [and it] should catapult Antonio quickly as an attraction.Vargas amateur accolades, besides the Olympic berth, include being named the 2015 USA Boxing Elite Male Athlete of the Year, as well as winning gold medals in 2015 at the U.S. Olympic trials, Pan American Games, National Golden Gloves and U.S. national championships. He also won gold medals in 2014 at the National Golden Gloves and Pan American Youth Championships.Im extremely happy for Antonio to have this opportunity with Top Rank, said Vargas manager, Dave McWater of Split T Management. Hes worked his whole life to be the best, and in signing with Top Rank he is now with the best. NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys Stitched Jerseys China Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
