The Russian Paralympic Team suspended untill next September

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has indicated that if the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) does not meet its obligations in full by early September then there is a strong chance it will not be allowed to enter its athletes into the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. The comments come after the IPC Governing Board unanimously decided last Thursday (18 May) not to lift the RPC’s suspension following an update from the IPC Taskforce, which was appointed to monitor the fulfilment of the reinstatement criteria.

The IPC suspended the RPC on 7 August due to its inability to fulfil its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations, in particular its obligation to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code (to which it is also a signatory).
