MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. Russian Trampoline team has been allowed to compete at 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, President of the Russian Trampoline Federation (RTF) Nikolay Makarov said on Wednesday.
"We received the verbal permission from the international federation (International Federation of Gymnastics) yesterday. Documents were sent to IOC (International Olympic Committee) yesterday as well. That’s why I think the official document on allowing (athletes to compete at Olympics) will be issued today," Makarov said.
Three Russian gymnasts were allowed to compete at the upcoming Olympics - Dmitry Ushakov, Andrey Yudin and Yana Pavlovaa.
On Sunday, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) held a meeting of its executive board to discuss possible blanket ban of Russian athletes at the Rio Olympics. The IOC executive committee decided not to ban the Russian team. Individual decision on Russian athletes will be taken by relevant international federations. Apart from that, the IOC ruled than no Russian athlete who has ever been sanctioned for doping will be allowed to take part in the Rio Olympics, even if he or she has served the sanction.
