The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has removed the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) from its compliance watch list.

The anti-doping watchdog made the announcement in a release today, saying the FIG has worked “diligently” to implement “all corrective measures” requested by WADA.

The FIG was placed on WADA’s watch list in November last year.

This decision was thought to be largely due to procedural issues after the governing body signed up with the International Testing Agency.

At the time WADA said the FIG would be on the watch-list for four months and today’s announcement comes with that period having now elapsed.

“Since November, FIG has worked diligently to successfully implement all corrective actions resulting from a compliance audit conducted by WADA,” WADA said in their statement.

“WADA will continue to monitor FIG’s anti-doping program as it does with all International Sports Federations and National Anti-Doping Organizations.”
