MOSCOW, August 31. /TASS/. Some 200 personal requests from Russian Paralympians were submitted with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) asking for individual permission to take part in the 2016 Summer Games, to be held next month in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro, the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) said in its statement on Wednesday.
"About 200 individual applications from Russian Paralympians are pending for review at the IPC," the statement said. "In case the applications are rejected, they would be appealed in the IPC Appeals Committee or in the Court of Arbitration for Sport."
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.
The RPC filed a lawsuit with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on August 15 in Lausanne against the IPC’s decision, but eight days later, the Swiss-based court ruled to uphold the ban slapped on the whole Russian Paralympic squad.
Last Friday, the RPC submitted a motion with the Supreme Federal Court of Switzerland appealing the decision made earlier by the CAS.
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.
