The head of the World Anti-Doping Agency said it has started investigating allegations of doping by the Russian and Chinese swimming teams.

At a conference on Monday, WADA President Craig Reedie said it has “started inquiries into the suggestion of doping” by Russian and Chinese swimmers in conjunction with FINA.

Reedie noted “a wave of new troubling allegations” about doping at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, including the systemic manipulation of urine and blood samples.

He said WADA fully backed the decision last week to ban Russia’s athletics team from international competition.
