LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Two days before the release of a new report into Russian doping, the IOC on Wednesday extended the provisional sanctions imposed on the country over allegations of systematic cheating and cover-ups. Asics Gel Lyte 3 Rose .The International Olympic Committee executive board said the measures imposed on July 19 have been extended until further notice.The sanctions, originally designed to apply until the end of this year, were put into place following the first report by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren that alleged state-sponsored doping in Russia.Under the measures, the IOC will not organize or give patronage to any sports events or meetings in Russia. In addition, the IOC urges all Olympic winter sports federations to freeze their preparations for major events in Russia, including world championships and World Cups and to actively look for alternative organizers.Separately, the IOC also released its latest figures from this years retesting of stored doping samples from the 2012 London Olympics and 2008 Beijing Games, putting the total so far of positive cases at 101, with three new positives recorded since the 98 cases announced in July. Russian athletes and the sport of weightlifting were the worst offenders.IOC medical director Dr. Richard Budgett said he expects many more positives from the London Games to be confirmed in the coming weeks. To date, the retests have caught at least 27 medalists from Beijing and 16 from London, including five gold medalists.The IOC executive board released a statement that set out its position ahead of Fridays r release in London of McLarens second and final report into the Russian scandal.The Canadian lawyers first report, issued in July, led WADA to recommend Russias exclusion from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The IOC rejected the call, instead allowing international federations to decide which Russians could compete.Fridays report is expected to focus on evidence of organized Russian doping centered on the Sochi Games, including allegations that tainted samples of Russian athletes -- including medalists -- were swapped for clean ones through a concealed hole in the wall of the drug-testing lab.The IOC said the allegations go to the heart of the Olympic Games and are a fundamental attack on their integrity.The committee said due process must be followed, meaning McLarens evidence must be evaluated and those implicated -- including athletes and the Russian Sports Ministry -- have to be given the right to be heard.Once the investigations are complete, the IOC will take all the appropriate measures and sanctions, including disqualification of athletes from the games and exclusion of implicated officials, entourage or government officials from the Olympics, the statement said.The IOCs call for a freeze on major events in Russia has been called into question by Russias hosting of the 2017 world bobsled and skeleton championships in Sochi. Some athletes have suggested they could boycott the event.IOC spokesman Mark Adams said the resolution did not cover events that were already planned.As it stands that event was planned beforehand and doesnt contravene the IOCs call as far as I understand, he said.Questions have also been raised over the recent decision to award the 2021 world biathlon championships to Russia in the Siberian city of Tyumen. International Biathlon Union President Anders Besseberg has said the event could be relocated if more evidence of state-backed doping emerges.Outside of the Olympics, international federations have the authority to sanction athletes and their entourage and potentially suspend national federations, the IOC said.McLarens report will be sent to two separate IOC inquiry commissions. One is looking into the allegations of Russian state involvement in doping, the other is investigating the athletes and the doping samples.Meanwhile, the IOC said it has so far sanctioned 79 athletes whose samples came back positive this year in reanalysis with improved techniques that can detect use of steroids going back weeks rather than days. The IOC stores doping samples for 10 years, allowing them to be retested when new methods become available.Budgett said the Beijing testing is now complete, while more samples remain to be reanalyzed from London.There will be many more (positives) to come in the future because the program is continuing, he said. In the coming weeks and months we should expect more from London.Budgett said McLaren is investigating samples for Sochi, and they will be turned over to the IOC for forensic examination and reanalysis. Sixty blood samples from Russian athletes have already been checked and did not produce any positive findings, he said.Russia has been by far the worst violator in the retesting program, with 16 of its athletes out of the 44 caught from Beijing, and 11 out of the 29 from London so far.Budgett said it would be speculation to conclude that the figures support evidence of an organized Russian doping program.It adds some substance to the debate but it doesnt actually tell us what goes on, he said.Weightlifting was the sport with the most positives -- 38 out of the 79 from London and Beijing, followed by track and field with 31.Many critics have called for weightlifting to be kicked out of the Olympics because of its doping record.I suppose you could say every sport is at risk, Budgett said. Weightlifting has got a good anti-doping program in place at the moment. Its a judgment as to what went on in the past and what they are doing now.

Christian Horner is willing to rate Max Verstappens drive at the Brazilian Grand Prix alongside some of Formula Ones most iconic wet-weather performances.Verstappen stole the show at Interlagos with a thrilling drive full of brilliant overtakes, capped by a charge from 16th to third in the closing stages. Mercedes boss Toto Wolff later remarked the teenager is redefining the laws of physics with every drive.It led to comparisons with countless other great drives in wet conditions and Horner thinks it deserves its place amongst the best.When asked where it stacked up with Ayrton Sennas drive at Monaco in 1984 or Michael Schumachers at Barcelona in 1996, Horner said: It is right up there, you have to compare it to those great moments.You dont often witness a motor race like that, and what we saw today was something very, very special.Verstappens drive included a great pass around the outside of Nico Rosberg on the outside of Turn 2 in the final part of the race.The one I enjoyed the most was Rosberg! But all of his passing moves - he raced hard with Sebastian, he raced hard with Kimi into Turn 1, all his movees were great passing moves. Asics Aaron. Despite Verstappens heroics, Horner doubts the teenager could have challenged Lewis Hamilton for the victory. After the numerous restarts, Hamilton consistently opened up a gap to second place after managing each one without encountering drama.It would have been difficult to challenge Lewis. We managed to get into second place, but Lewis seemed to have the pace to cover us, so that is why we took a slight risk with the strategy to roll the dice, looking like hopefully the intermediate would come alive.It became apparent to us shortly afterwards as the rain very slightly increased, that we needed to abort that strategy, which was quite painful behind the safety car because you drop back a significant amount of positions. But the speed which he came back through the field, not losing time, we could see that he was catching Perez who was in the podium position with 10 laps to go, every lap, even when he was making passes he was gaining time.
