MOSCOW, July 22. /TASS/. The All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) will hold a tournament on July 28 for Russian track and field athletes who currently have no possibility to perform at the Rio Olympics, ARAF press attache Alla Glushchenko told TASS on Friday.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne announced on Thursday it had rejected a lawsuit filed by the Russian Olympic Committee and 68 Russian athletes challenging the decision by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to bar them from international competitions, including the Olympic Games in Brazil amid doping allegations.
Under the court’s decision, the Russian Olympic Committee may not include field and track athletes failing to meet the IAAF’s criteria in the national team’s roster for the Olympic Games.
"Still a little hope has remained that the International Olympic Committee will take a decision favorable for us. On Thursday, a tournament will be held so that athletes can keep their physical shape and get money compensation. We’re now discussing this issue, which was decided today. It is not yet known whether it will be held in Moscow or in some other place but we hope that all the strongest Russian track and field athletes will participate in it. We don’t know yet about whether [pole vault champion] Yelena Isinbayeva will participate," Glushchenko said.
So far, only Russian long jumper Darya Klishina training in the United States has been cleared for participation in the Olympic Games in Brazil.
