Russia's Klishina wins appeal, can compete at Rio Olympics
Aug 22, 2016, 00:38
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has upheld the application filed by Russian athlete Darya Klishina (long jump) seeking to overturn the decision rendered by the IAAF Doping Review Board (IAAF DRB), which on August 12 made her ineligible to compete in Rio, the CAS press-release reads on Monday.
On June 17, the IAAF Council ruled it was still too early to restore ARAF's (All-Russia Athletics Federation) membership in the worldwide organisation subsequently extending the suspension of Russian athletes from all global tournaments, including the 2016 Olympic Games.
CAS ruled that Klishina was eligible to compete because she fulfilled the requirements set by the IAAF. It added that Klishina "established that she was subject to fully compliant drug-testing in- and out-of-competition outside of Russia" from 2014 onwards.

The governing body then withdrew her exemption on Saturday, a source telling Reuters the move was based on new evidence from a World Anti-Doping Agency investigation conducted by lawyer Richard McLaren.
"I can thankfully focus my time and attention on competing tomorrow night and enjoying my Olympic experience, which I have dreamed of since I first began long jumping as a young girl", said Klishina on Facebook.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has cleared Russia's Darya Klishina to compete in the long jump at Rio 2016.
After a day of hearings CAS announced it supported Klishina s appeal and that she "remained eligible to compete in the Olympic Games in Rio".
Previous year at the World Championships, Klishina finished 10th place in the long jump event. "It's beyond the realm of common sense".
