The only member of Russia’s athletic squad Darya Klishyna is officially approved for further performance in the Summer Olympic Games in Rio. The Lausanne-based CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) allowed her respective appeal, AFP reports.

Foreign media wrote that her temporary suspension from the Games is due to her name being included in the report by WADA concerning massive doping use by Russian athletes. That almost left the entire Russian Olympic team aboard this year’s Games.
