(Reuters) - Russian athletes produced 52 positive tests and 111 whereabouts failures, the World Anti-Doping Agency said on Wednesday in its status update report concerning Russian testing during their period of non-compliance.

The WADA report, which covers a six-month period from last November following the suspension of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency, also said some Russian athletes did not complete events or withdrew from start lists to elude doping control officers.
