MOSCOW, August 12. /TASS/. The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has rejected an appeal from Russia's canoeist Alexei Korovashkov, who now will not be able to participate in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, head of the Russian Canoe Federation Yevgeny Arkhipov told TASS on Friday.
Earlier, the International Canoe Federation (ICF) said it has removed two Russian canoers - Andrey Kraitor and Alexey Korovashkov - and three kayakers - Elena Aniushina, Natalia Podolskaia and Alexander Dyachenko - from the Rio Olympic Games following the release of additional information naming those implicated by the McLaren Report. On August 4, Kraitor’s lawyer told TASS IOC’s Independent Commission allowed the athlete to the Olympic Games.
"Unfortunately, CAS has rejected Korovashkov's appeal," he said. "We are very disappointed. The athlete will not be able to participate in the Games."
IOC President Thomas Bach announced on July 24 that Russian athletes, with the exception of track and field competitors, were allowed to participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics based on individual approval of each respective international sports federation or association.
