MOSCOW, March 6. /TASS/. Russia’s Rowing Federation (RRF) has referred to the International Rowing Federation (FISA) a list of more than 300 Russian athletes to be cleared for international competitions, RRF President Alexei Svirin told TASS on Monday.
In mid-February, the FISA Executive Committee issues a list of criteria Russian athletes are required to meet to be cleared for international tournaments.
"We drew a list of more than 300 athletes and referred it to the international federation for consideration. We have already received their confirmation of receipt. The FISA Executive Committee held its meeting yesterday but we have received nothing from them as of yet. We are waiting for a letter from them. We hope to have it in the next couple of days," Svirin said.
In early August, 2016, the International Rowing Federation (FISA) and the commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) admitted only six out of 26 Russian rowers entered in the national roster for the Rio Olympics, as well as two coxwains.
As a result, the Russian coaches had to form the sole crew from the rowers admitted to the Olympics while the FISA gave the other four quotas to other national rowing teams.
