The international Paralympic Committee (IPC) does not intend to allow Russians to participate in the world Championships in athletics in 2017. About it reports The Telegraph.
According to the publication, the IASC intends to extend the suspension of Russian Paralympic athletes, following the decision of the International Association of athletics federations (IAAF) to extend the suspension of the all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla).
The world championship will be held in London from 14 to 17 July.
On January 30 it became known that the Executive Committee of the IPC banned the Russian Paralympic athletes to participate in qualifying for the Games in 2018 in Pyeongchang. Despite this, the Russian Paralympic Committee (RCC) will continue to prepare Russian athletes for the Paralympics.
August 7, IPC suspended the entire national team of Russia on Games in 2016 and expelled RCC membership. The decision was made on the basis of data submitted by the independent Commission of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) under the leadership of Richard McLaren, to investigate the charges of organizing doping system in Russian sports.
