RIO DE JANEIRO, August 16. /TASS/. The Russian Olympic Committee and the Sports Ministry will reward the Russian track and field athletes who missed the Rio Olympics for reasons not related to sports, the head of the Russian delegation to the Olympic Games told a news conference on Tuesday.
"We will reward them, marking their preparations for the Games. They are not to blame for not getting a chance to compete in Rio. They will be rewarded by the Russian Olympic Committee and by the Sports Ministry. We will think how to do this," Igor Kazikov said.
Russian track and field athletes were banned from the Rio Olympics 2016 because of the disqualification of the All-Russian Athletics Federation (RAF). Long jumper Darya Klishina, who lives and trains abroad, was the only Russian athlete allowed to compete in the Rio Olympics.
On July 21, the Court of Arbitration for Sport unanimously dismissed an appeal by the Russian Olympic Committee and 68 Russian track-and-field athletes against the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), which had forbidden them to compete in Rio.
