RUSSIA: "The acting head of the Russian anti-doping agency RUSADA [Anna Antseliovich] told CNN Wednesday [12-28-16] that The New York Times "changed" what she said in an interview about whether athletes took drugs to enhance their performance at the Sochi Olympics… 
Antseliovich told CNN's Matthew Chance that Ruiz [NYTs Reporter] 'changed' what she said, and Antseliovich denied admitting that doping in Russia was an institutional conspiracy. It was actually lawyer Richard McLaren who used the word 'institutional' in an interview with the Times, she told CNN.
The World Anti-Doping Agency commissioned McLaren to investigate Russian doping allegations. Antseliovich said she merely welcomed the fact that his language had changed from 'state sponsored.' "
