MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. President of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Philip Craven is the last instance to decide on the fate of Russian Paralympic team’s participation in the 2016 Rio Games, an official with the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) told TASS on Wednesday.
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.
"This is bad news," Mikhail Terentyev, a member of the RPC Athletes Council and a lawmaker with the Russian parliament’s lower house, said in an interview with TASS. "As you well know Russian athletes submitted personal applications with the IPC and President Craven will have to answer them."
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced last week that Russia would organize alternative competitive events for the barred Russian Paralympic team and the awards for Paralympians would be equal to those promised at the 2016 Rio Games.
