Olympics ban for Russian Paralympians


IPC President Sir Philip Craven said: “It’s a decision we’ve had to take in the best interests of the Paralympic Movement.”

Sir Philip said he had “deep sympathy” for the Russian para athletes who will miss the Games but said they were part of a “broken system”.

The report claimed that the commission found evidence that Russia’s Sports Ministry and the center for the training of Russian national teams and the Federal Security Service had covered up the doping program in Russian sports.
