It is unlikely that the Russians will perform under a neutral flag.
Head of Olympic and Paralympic Committee USA Susan Lyons expressed doubt that any Russian athlete would be able to prove its “purity” and under a neutral flag to perform at the forthcoming Olympic games in Tokyo. About it reports “Voice of America”.
According to Lyons, which commented on the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) to dismiss Russia from the international sport, “the Russian athletes would be incredibly difficult to prove his innocence.”
WADA first reported widespread use of doping Russian athletes in 2015.
Earlier, the head of the National Olympic Committee of Britain Hugh Robertson called for the adoption of possible sanctions against the Russian Federation in connection with the doping scandal.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that the World anti-doping Agency (WADA) has suspended Russia from the next two Olympic games. The ban will last for four years. However, the Russian athletes were allowed to compete under a neutral flag and no anthem.
In addition, WADA has deprived Russia of the right to compete for holding the Olympic games 2032. Russia will not be able to qualify for the Olympic and Paralympic games 2032 regardless of whether there is a contest on or after the ban.
