The IOC can completely remove Russia from the 2016 Olympics

Biggest blow was for Russian athletes, and generally for the Russian sports the decision of the IAAF to extend the suspension, which will not allow you to participate in the 2016 Olympics in Rio. But on Sunday, the Western media reported about the terrible new shock, which, probably, already prepares the international Olympic Committee. Sources said that Russia want to separate from the Olympics, announcing a ban on the participation of all the athletes or a large group of different sports.

As he writes in his publication of the German magazine Der Spiegel, citing unnamed participants of the summit of the IOC in Lausanne, the Russian team can fully exclude from participation in the Olympic games of 2016, which will be held this summer in Rio de Janeiro. Sources said that such a scenario will be discussed at the summit, but the agenda has not yet been determined. According to the media, IOC President Thomas Bach maintains friendly relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to discuss the matter first with him.

We are talking about the suspension of the National Olympic Committee of Russia, or at least athletes of different sports, not just athletes. In any case, according to the publication, it will be a “historic decision.”

Yesterday, the IOC Executive Board has issued a statement in which he supported the decision of the IAAF Council to uphold the disqualification of the all-Russian athletics Federation, which means the ban on Russian athletes to participate in the 2016 Olympics. The Minister of sports Vitaly Mutko and other officials said that Russia will continue to fight for their athletes and attract lawyers to address this issue. While Mutko has noticed that apparently the chances of the Russian athletes there.

It is hoped that publication in the German media will be a publication and a crazy idea about a complete disqualification of Russia to the Olympics in Rio will not take place. In the end, it will be a blow not only for Russian sport, but also for the world.
