In early May 2016, stories of state-run doping during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games were reported in the US media. The stories were largely based on allegations made by Dr Grigory Rodchenkov, former Director of the Moscow and Sochi doping control laboratories, and Russian athlete Yulia Stepanova.

Rodchenkov detailed how Russian athletes were being schooled in strategies to evade detection, and should those strategies fail, a system was in place to make any evidence of doping disappear.
