COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (Reuters) - The Russian Anti-Doping Agency was suspended by the World Anti-Doping Agency on Wednesday for non-compliance.

The decision, which had the unanimous support of WADA's foundation board, came less than two weeks after an independent commission set up by the international anti-doping commission uncovered widespread doping offences and systematic failures.
