WADA says Argentina now compliant with anti-doping code

MONTREAL (AP) The World Anti-Doping Agency has declared Argentina compliant again with the global anti-doping code.

Argentina had been declared non-compliant due to its national anti-doping agency using non-accredited laboratories for doping tests. WADA says Argentina has resolved the issue.

Argentina was put on the list of non-compliant countries in November last year. Its removal from the list leaves four nations currently still non-compliant with world anti-doping regulations: Andorra, Bolivia, Russia and Ukraine.

Russia has also been banned from international track and field competitions after a WADA report alleged a vast system of state-sponsored doping and cover-ups in the country.
