Doping – Russian PM slams 'cynical' Rio ban

Doping - Russian PM slams 'cynical' Rio ban– Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev slammed the rejection of Russia’s appeal against a ban on its Paralympians from Rio over state-run doping as a “cynical decision.” “Banning our Paralympic athletes from Rio 2016 is a cynical decision motivated by desire to remove strong rivals,” Medvedev wrote in English on his official Twitter page. Russia last week appealed a decision by the International Paralympic Committee to suspend the country over evidence of state-sponsored doping. After the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport announced it had rejected Russia’s appeal on Tuesday, Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko decried that it had made a “political” decision.
