Athletes, weightlifters may not be able to compete at the Olympic games in Rio. The decision will be made on the results of rechecking doping tests from the previous Olympiads. Illegal drugs found at the two Russians.
No documents, no evidence, no interviews - page of text on the website. International weightlifting Federation the meeting was going exactly one day after the IOC through the court preserved the opportunity for our athletes to compete at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The new verdict of the IOC after the meeting in Georgia: reduce the number of permits for the Russians at the Olympics now in weightlifting. 2 quotes have been withdrawn from the Russian team - 1 male, 1 female - because of the numerous positive samples in the period of disqualification. What are these numerous trials, from whom, why this was stated just now, 1.5 months before the Olympics, questions remain unanswered. Given that the Russian national team in weightlifting - one of the few teams who actually claim to medals.
2 quotas - the strongest blow, this is the 5th part of the Russian trips to Brazil. Instead of 10 athletes from Russia on the Olympic games go 8, at best. Unable to disqualify the whole team. This is the second precedent after the story of the athletes. The International Federation decided to conduct a re-examination of samples taken from athletes at the Olympics 4 and 8 years ago. If you find 3 or more violations, the team disqualifiziert year. In the Russian team test has failed medalists of the Beijing Olympics Marina Shainova and Hope Utuhina. Doping suspect the silver medalist of the London games, Alti Aukhadov, his trial has not yet opened. Quotas, except for Russia, has selected and Kazakhstan, North Korea, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Belarus. The Russian national team at the last two world Championships won the maximum number of trips to Rio and was considered the main favourite of the Olympic games.
Another attack in the direction of Russia: the IOC expressed disappointment that the post of Chairman of the anti-doping Commission of the European Federation of weightlifting elected the representative of Russia Sergey raw, and requests to review the decision. Following the IOC meeting scheduled for the next few hours.
