GENEVA, August 31. /TASS/. The Supreme Federal Court of Switzerland ruled on Tuesday against an appeal from Russia on the suspension of national Paralympians from the 2016 Summer Games, according to Reuters news agency.
Artyom Patsev, a Russian sports lawyer, told TASS commenting on the court’s decision that is was predictable and it was senseless for Russia to file an appeal.
"It was immediately clear that they would reject the appeal, which was senseless," Patsev said in an interview with TASS. "I said it earlier that it was all very predictable."
On August 7, the IPC (International Paralympic Committee) decided to bar the whole Russian Paralympic team from taking part in the 2016 Summer Paralympics. The ruling came on the heels of a report delivered earlier in the summer by the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency.
