MOSCOW, August 30. /TASS/. Russia’s canoeists Natalya Podolskaya and Alexander Dyachenko, who missed the Rio Olympics, have been barred from all international competitions by the International Canoe Federation, the president of the All-Russia Canoe Federation, Yevgeny Arkhipov, has said.
"The federation has taken a harsh stance only towards two athletes, Podolskaya and Dyachenko," Arkhipov said. "As for other athletes who did not participate in the Games and were suspended, no such restrictions apply. For instance, Alexey Korovashkov. I do hope they will be able to compete."
Earlier, the International Canoe Federation barred Alexander Dyachenko, Natalya Podolskaya and Yelena Anyushina, and also Andrey Kraitor and Alexey Korovashkov from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics on the basis of a report delivered by the independent commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency under Richard McLaren. The Court of Arbitration for Sports canceled the suspension only for Kraitor and Anyushin, thereby letting both athletes participate in the Games.
