Paralympics – Paralympic sanction for Belarussian who waved Russian flag

View of the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on September 7, 2016– The International Paralympic Committee said it has stripped a Belarussian of his accreditation for waving a Russian flag at the opening ceremony, calling it a “political statement” after Russia’s doping ban. The IPC said it would also speak to the Belarus Paralympic Committee to remind it political displays are not allowed at the Olympic or Paralympic Games. The man in question was not an athlete but a friend of the Belarus committee president who had been accredited to take part in the ceremony.
