The decision of the International Federation of athletics associations not to permit the Russian sportsmen for participation in the Olympics in Brazil in fact has no legal force. According to experts, to remove from the competition can only be a court of arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.
The verdict is expected on July 21. Sports lawyer Artem Patsev "the Announcement by the IAAF about the results of checking legal values for a court decision does not bear on referees to influence in any way." The decision of the IAAF aims to prevent the performance of the Russian team. It is the opinion of the coach of the Olympic champion Elena Isinbaeva.
The coach of Isinbaeva Evgeny Trofimov "They are doing everything possible to make our team go. A team ready to compete at the highest level."
