After all, we’re going to Rio. But not all

Все-таки мы едем в Рио. Но не все

But the selection of athletes and international federations will be very careful.

Today in Rio de Janeiro opened the Olympic village. But not all the Russian athletes who qualified for the Games will be able to get to it. But most importantly, we are going to participate in the Olympics.

The international Olympic Committee adopted a half-hearted solution: he would not dismiss entirely the Russian national team from the Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. But it allows the federations to sports to make the decision on admission or non-admission of our athletes.

The condition is very tough. And this despite the fact that prior to the Games remains nothing. Even the absence of a positive doping samples taken at the national level is not sufficient justification for admission to Rio.

The international Federation needs to check each athlete and his doping history based on only reliable doping tests taken at the international level, also taking into account the specifics of the sport, its rules to ensure equal conditions for all athletes“, – reads the statement of the IOC.

Rather, problems should not be synchronized swimmers, gymnasts, fencers, wrestlers, Riflemen, representatives of game kinds of sports: volleyball, handball and water sex.

Definitely not going to Rio athletes, and perhaps the problem will be weightlifters – there have been many cases of doping.
