MOSCOW, July 29. /TASS/. Only four Russian rowers are allowed to compete in 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, President of the Russian Rowing Federation Veniamin But told TASS on Friday.
The International Rowing Federation (FISA) said earlier that six Russian rowers are allowed to compete in the Rio Olympics.
"The last edition was issued, and the decision of the international federation is based on the requirement that there should be at least three doping tests from international laboratories. The most interesting thing is that doping tests made on the same day are considered as one test. We tried to do this yesterday, asked commissioners to come to Portugal to collect doping tests. I was told that tests should be regular, while the international federation impedes this in every possible way. If it were possible, eight more people could take part in the Olympic Games. And only four people were allowed (to compete in Olympics), one boat. They are Morgachev, Kosov, Ryabtsev and Zarutsky," But explained.
"We prepared a lawsuit to CAS. This situation will have either positive or negative outcome on Monday or Tuesday," But said.
