International Paralympic Committee intends to suspend all Russian Paralympic team from participating in the Olympic Games in Rio. It is reported by "The Guardian". On the solution will be announced at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro.
The Council of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) held a meeting lasting three hours with the delegation of the Russian Paralympic Committee in Bonn. There the Russian side gave verbal and written arguments of the groundlessness of accusations.
If in the last minute of the IPC does not change its mind, it is very likely that the entire Russian team be removed from the Paralympic competitions. The reason for this is the report by Richard McLaren, who proved the unreliability of the Russian anti-doping system. McLaren revealed systematic doping in most sports of the Russian team. According to him, over 4 years, was destroyed 35 positive doping tests of athletes with disabilities.
