MOSCOW, July 5. /TASS/. The All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) published on Tuesday the list of 68 national track and field athletes, who meet the federation’s requirements to enter the country’s Olympic roster for the 2016 Summer Games in Brazil.
"Each athlete sent a personal application to the International Association of Athletics Federations [IAAF] for approval, since ARAF’s membership in IAAF is currently suspended," ARAF said in its statement.
"Moreover, after having coordinated its stance with ARAF, the Russian Olympic Committee [ROC] filed a lawsuit against IAAF with the Court of Arbitration for Sport [CAS] in Lausanne concerning the legal aspects of the introduction of additional criteria necessary to confirm athletes’ admission to the Olympics," the statement said.
"The lawsuit has been supported by all 68 athletes at the issue," the statement added.
