MOSCOW, July 26. /TASS/. The whole Russian Olympic national rowing team may be banned from taking part in the 2016 Summer Games in Brazil next month, Veniamin But, the president of the Russian Rowing Federation (RRF), told TASS on Tuesday.
"I do not know at the moment whether we will go or not [to Brazil," But said in an interview with TASS. "Considering the ongoing development anything is possible."
The International Rowing Federation announced on Monday that three Russian rowers were barred from taking part in the upcoming Olympics.
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.
According to the details, the commission claimed it had 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 a doping program in Russian sports.
The report from WADA’s Commission stated in particular that the commission’s investigation registered a total of 643 cases of Disappearing Positive Test Results in Russia between 2012 and 2015 involving athletes from 30 sports.
The Russian Rowing Federation (RRF) plans to file an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne against the earlier decision of the International Rowing Federation (FISA) to ban three Russian rowers from 2016 Summer Olympics, Veniamin But added.
"I believe this is exactly what we must do," But said. "We are disappointed beyond the limits because four years of our hard work have all been in vain. So we need to do something about it.".
