MOSCOW, July 25. /TASS/. The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has no claims to Russian sailors, thus allowing them to compete at the Rio Olympics, spokesman for the All-Russia Sailing Federation (ARSF) Alexei Zhirov told TASS on Monday.
"The international federation has no claims to us and the Russian team will compete in its full composition in Rio," Zhirov said.
"The team is already in Brazil, in combat readiness. They are undergoing acclimatization," the spokesman said.
The Russian sailing team at the Rio Olympics is represented by Sergey Komissarov, Stefania Elfutina, Max Oberemko, Denis Gribanov, Pavel Sozykin, Alisa Kirilyuk and Liudmila Dmitrieva.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Independent Commission chaired by Canadian law professor Richard McLaren released a report on July 18 on the results of its probe into the accusations of doping and manipulation of tests by Russian athletes and officials at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
The report claimed that the commission found evidence that Russia’s Sports Ministry and the Center for the Training of Russian National Teams and the Federal Security Service had covered up the doping program in Russian sports.
At its conference call on July 24, the executive board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided against barring the Russian national team from participation in the Rio Olympics. A decision on admitting Russian athletes to the Summer Olympic Games in Brazil should be taken by the relevant international sports federations, the IOC resolved.
The Summer Olympic Games in Brazil will be held on August 5 - 21.
