MOSCOW---At least 105 athletes from the 387-strong
Russian Olympic team announced last week have
been barred from the Rio Games in connection with
the country s doping scandal.
International federations in canoeing, sailing and
modern pentathlon ruled out eight yesterday, including
an Olympic gold medalist. Rowing added 19 more ath-
letes to three that had previously been announced.
Swimming has also barred some athletes. Some appeals
Russian President Vladimir Putin s spokesman Dmitry
Peskov told Russian media that Putin had discussed
the doping issue with his national security council.
The vast majority of the Russian athletes who miss
out are in track and field, where 67 athletes were ruled
out when a ban on the Russian team was upheld at
the Court of Arbitration for Sport last week.
More are falling foul of new rules imposed in the
wake of the country s doping scandal.
While Russia avoided a blanket ban from the Inter-
national Olympic Committee, it has lost several medal
contenders to new IOC rules imposed Sunday banning
Russia from entering athletes who previously doped.
Alexander Dyachenko, an Olympic champion in
2012, was among five canoeists ruled out after being
named in a recent report by World Anti-Doping Agency
investigator Richard McLaren alleging a state-sponsored
McLaren s report last week specifically detailed how
Russian state officials allegedly intervened to cover up
hundreds of failed drug tests.
Dyachenko won gold in the men s double kayak 200
meters at the 2012 London Games.
"The ICF will continue its strong zero-tolerance
stance and remove all athletes that contravene its rules
in anyway," said Simon Toulson, the International
Canoe Federation s general secretary. "If you step out
of line you won t make the start line."
The four other banned canoeists are Alexei
Korovashkov---a 2012 bronze medalist in the C2 1,000
meters event---Andrei Kraitor, Elena Anyushina and
The ICF also said that Russia would not be allowed
to enter boats in four events in which the excluded
athletes would have raced. Therefore, Austria, Germany,
Sweden and Iran are in line to receive their places.
World Sailing said Pavel Sozykin, who had been due
to race in the 470 class, would be excluded because
he was mentioned in the McLaren report. Russia s
other six sailors were approved and Russia is able to
nominate a replacement for Sozykin, the federation
Meanwhile, the International Modern Pentathlon
Union named the two Russians it had suspended as
Maxim Kustov and Ilya Frolov, saying they both featured
in the McLaren report.
There are now a total of 22 Russian rowers who have
been excluded. They include Ivan Podshivalov and
Anastasia Karabelshchikova, who were excluded because
they previously served doping bans, while Ivan Balandin
from Russia s men s eight was implicated in the McLaren
report, World Rowing said. The others, according to
a release Tuesday, did not meet standards set by the
Meanwhile, volleyball player Alexander Markin told
local media he had been dropped due to a positive test
earlier this year for the banned substance meldonium,
even though he had not been banned. The international
volleyball federation did not immediately respond to
a request for comment.
The head of the Russian Wrestling Federation told
the R-Sport agency that two-time world champion
Viktor Lebedev was ineligible because he was given a
doping ban in 2006.
On Monday, swimming s world governing body FINA
ruled out seven Russians including reigning world
100m breaststroke champion Yulia Efimova.
Legal challenges are looming.
Efimova s agent has said he is preparing an appeal
At least 105 Russian
athletes banned so far
to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and the Russian
Canoe Federation s general secretary Irina Sirayeva said
that the five banned athletes could follow suit.
Triple jumper Ekaterina Koneva---a former world
championship silver medalist---told local media she
was considering a lawsuit in civil court.
There was good news for Russia as its judo and
shooting teams---comprised 11 and 18 athletes respec-
tively---received approval to compete from their sports
international governing bodies.
