MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. The Amateur International Boxing Association (AIBA) does not have any claims against Russian boxers, and they should all be allowed to compete at 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, director of the Russian Boxing Federation (RBF) Evgeny Sudakov told TASS on Wednesday.
"We sent all information to AIBA yesterday, they should not have any claims against us. We will receive an official decision soon, all boxers should compete at Olympic Games," Sudakov said.
The Russian team earned 11 licenses for competing at the upcoming Olympic Games.
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.
The 31st Summer Olympic Games will be held in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro from August 5 through 21, 2016.
