MOSCOW, August 4. /TASS/. The International Handball Federation has said that the independent commission of the International Olympic Committee has allowed the Russian women’s team to participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the president of the Russian Handball Federation, Sergey Shishkaryov has told TASS.
"The IHF said the IOC has allowed our team to take part. We are waiting for an official confirmation," Shishkaryov said.
Earlier, the IHF said that all of Russia’s 17 women players had passed an unscheduled doping test at the sports base in Novogorsk, near Moscow, early this week.
Russia’s women handball players, including Kseniya Makeyeva and Olga Chernoivanenko, who had failed to be included in the Olympic list, underwent an unscheduled IHF-initiated doping test on Tuesday. Earlier, the IOC Executive Board ruled that Russian athletes who had never been found guilty of doping abuse were free to compete in Rio.
At the group stage of the tournament Russia will play South Korea, France, Argentina, Sweden and the Netherlands. The first match, with South Korea, is due on August 6.
