Swiss court rejects Russian paralympic’s appeal
01.09.2016By Play the Game
A Swiss Supreme Court has decided to dismiss the appeal by Russia to overturn the International Paralympic Committee’s (IPC) decision to issue a blanket ban on Russian paralympic athletes based on the findings in the so-called McLaren report describing Russian state-sponsored doping.
According to AP, the Swiss Supreme court stated that the Russian Paralympic Committee “had not demonstrated it had fulfilled all its obligations to anti-doping rules”.
Last week, CAS dismissed the Russian Paralympic Committee's appeal against the IPC decision.
