The Paralympic Committee will not allow individual Russian athletes to participate at the Rio Paralympics!

The International Paralympic Committee announced that it will not allow individual Russian athletes to participate as neutral athletes at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. The decision followed individual requests by more than 175 Russian athletes to compete at the Paralympic Games, which open on 7 September.

The IPC's position is clear, and has been vindicated by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Panel’s recent judgement which, amongst other things, rejected the Russian Paralympic Committee's request to require the IPC to accept the entries of individual Russian athletes who could show they were “clean”.
