LONDON, July 28. /TASS/. The International Cycling Union (ICU) announced on Thursday that it gave green light to 11 out of 17 applied riders to take part in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Brazil, which kick off on Rio de Janeiro next month.
"Following the publication of the McLaren Investigation Report, the UCI immediately sought information from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) related to the sport of cycling and was informed that three riders named by the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) to compete in Rio 2016 were potentially implicated," the UCI said in its statement.
"Three other riders who have previously been sanctioned for Anti-Doping Rule Violations have been withdrawn by the ROC," UCI.
"The CADF [Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation] has carried out a careful assessment on the other 11 riders named by the ROC to participate in Rio 2016 cycling events,".
"After thorough analysis of the testing history of these riders and considering the scrutiny currently being applied to all of them, the UCI and CADF believe that this is sufficient for these athletes to meet the relevant requirement of the decision of the IOC Executive Board," the statement added.
