Join Hudson Institute for an expert panel discussion on how enforcement of the Rodchenkov Act can help clean up doping fraud in international sports, deliver justice for the victims of these corrupt acts, and hold kleptocracies accountable for their role in this practice.

In 2016, Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov exposed widespread Russian state-sponsored doping that had taken place during the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Corrupt officials used bribes and other illicit payments to facilitate their schemes, sometimes even laundering funds through U.S. financial institutions. Kleptocratic authoritarian regimes have become adept at exploiting international sports to enhance their legitimacy and prestige—but because U.S. law enforcement lacked legal mechanisms to confront their illicit activity, the masterminds behind Russian doping at Sochi and other major scandals have often escaped serious consequences.

In December 2020, Congress passed the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act to tackle the problem of doping fraud by extending U.S. law enforcement jurisdiction to international sporting competitions that involve American athletes or have financial connections to the United States. Join Hudson Institute Research Fellow Nate Sibley and experts Paul Massaro, Julia Pacetti, Travis Tygart, Jim Walden, and Joseph Gillespie for a discussion on this timely topic.
