Daily Mail: Russia may be banned from participating in team sports at the 2024 Games
Russia may be banned from participating in team sports at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. This became known to the Daily Mail.
It is noted that this is one of the options for recommendations for international federations. The restriction may apply to sports such as football, handball and volleyball.
On January 25, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that it was considering the possibility of individual admission to competitions for Russian and Belarusian athletes. It was noted that only athletes who did not support the conduct of a special operation in Ukraine and did not violate anti-doping rules will be able to get permission to compete in international tournaments.
At the end of February 2022, many sports organizations banned the national teams of Russia and Belarus from participating in tournaments on the recommendation of the IOC. In some disciplines, such as motorsport, cycling, tennis, boxing, MMA and chess, the Russians continue to play in a neutral status.
