With a neutral flag the Russian and Belarusian athletes at the Paralympic Games in Beijing

The International Paralympic Committee has decided that Russian and Belarusian athletes should participate regularly in the Paralympic Games in Beijing, which begin on Friday, with the difference that they will compete under a neutral flag.

Athletes of the two countries will retain the right to participate, under the Paralympic flag and without being included in the medal table. The same thing happened at the Beijing Olympics last month. We would like to remind you that since 2014, Russian athletes have been participating in international competitions under the neutral flag regime, due to the doping scandal, which seems to have had an official cover-up by the state.
