MOSCOW, August 9. /TASS/. Russia’s Paralympic Committee will file a protest at the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the suspension of its membership of the International Paralympic Committee by August 12, a member of the RPC Executive, Mikhail Terentiev, is quoted by the press service of the United Russia party as saying.
Earlier, the IPC disqualified the RPC and barred Russian athletes from the 2016 Games in Rio on the basis of a report by the independent commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
"The athletes are going ahead with their training programs under a plan approved of last year," Terentiev said. "The farewell ceremony on the occasion of the Russian paralympic team’s departure for the games is Due on August 29. I am certain that we will have a decision by that date. The appeal will be filed at the CAS by Friday and considered after August 20."
The International Paralympic Committee opened a case against Russia’s Paralympic Committee after it received from the World Anti-Doping Agency a list of 35 Russian parathletes mentioned in a report by WADA’s independent McLaren-led independent commission. The 2016 Paralympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro on September 7-18.
