WADA: Israel has fallen into line with anti-doping rules

MONTREAL (AP) Israel has fallen into line with the rules of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

WADA says its foundation board has voted to remove Israel from the list of countries found to be non-compliant with the world anti-doping code.

WADA says Israel has ''drafted and adopted anti-doping rules'' in line with the global code.

In November, Israel was one of six countries declared by WADA to be non-complaint, along with Andorra, Argentina, Bolivia, Russia and Ukraine.

Belgium, Brazil, France, Greece, Mexico and Spain were given until March 18 to come into compliance.
