RIO DE JANEIRO, September 12. /TASS/. The Chinese national team has won 23 medals in the fourth day of the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, leading in the unofficial team standing.
In total, the Chinese team has already won 39 golds, 30 silvers and 23 bronze medals. The second place is taken by the UK as its para athletes won 23 golds, 14 silvers and 19 bronze medals. The Ukrainian team is at the third spot with 49 medals (18-13-18) followed by the US team with 39 medals (13-15-11).
Russian para athletes do not take part in the 2016 Paralympics. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) disqualified the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) and banned all Russian para athletes from taking part in the Rio Games. Attempts to challenge this decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne proved unsuccessful. IPC also denied 175 Russian para athletes individual participation in the Games in Brazil.
The IPC made this decision following the report of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Independent Commission chaired by Richard McLaren. On July 22, IPC opened a case against RPC after the McLaren report mentioned 35 Russian para athletes.
The 2016 Summer Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will end on September 18.
