Thoughts?Russia will not face a country-wide ban from the Rio Olympics following the country’s doping scandal.
The International Olympics Committee (IOC) will instead leave it up to individual sport’s governing bodies to decide if the Russian competitors in their own sports are clean and whether they should be allowed to take part.
A report from Canadian law professor Richard McLaren said Russia operated a state-sponsored doping programme from 2011 to 2015.
But despite that, there will be no blanket ban on Russians from Rio 2016.
Any Russian athlete who has served a doping ban will not be eligible for next month’s Games.
And and Russian competitors who want to take part in the Rio will have to meet strict criteria set out by the IOC.
The Games start on August 5.
