World Sailing provisionally confirms the participation of six athletes for the Rio Olympic Games
Following a conference call earlier today with its Board of Directors, World Sailing have provisionally confirmed the participation of six athletes from Russia for the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympic Games:
The World Sailing Board carefully reviewed the decision taken earlier this week by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which determined that decisions regarding the eligibility of athletes for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games would be made by the International Federations; the criteria set forth by the IOC to determine eligibility; the rules and procedures of World Sailing; the anti-doping records of each athlete; and the results of the McLaren Investigation Report commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
One athlete, Pavel Sozykin, was denied eligibility, based upon the findings of the McLaren Investigation Report. As Sozykin competes in the 470 Men's Class, which is a two-person racing classification, World Sailing has recommended that the Russian Olympic Committee will have the opportunity to nominate a late athlete replacement.
