Orla Chennaoui, reporter for Sky Sports, disclosed the details at her Twitter page. According to her, ‘IOC's position complicated by Thursday's upcoming CAS decision on Russian track and field team ban. No blanket ban possible while ruling pending’. That was what she posted at first.

However, another tweet said that a lawyer working for Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) told Chennaoui that the IOC has full jurisdiction over the Olympics, including the decisions about including or excluding a player or an entire team from the competition. ‘So technically CAN overrule any CAS decision and ban Russia from Games’, the reporter wrote.

Previously, the IAAF declined application of all Russian track and field athletes for participation in the upcoming Olympics – except for Dariya Klishyna, who resides and practices in the USA.

Under the decision of the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations), international competitions, including the Olympics, will be open only for those Russian athletes who will be able to prove their non-involvement in the doping scandals and the Russian anti-doping system.
