ROC General Director Sengleev stated that athletes suspended from the Olympic Games were paid compensation

The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) has paid compensation to Russian athletes who were disqualified from participating in the 2024 Summer Games in Paris. The organization’s general director Vladimir Sengleev reported this to RIA Novosti.

According to him, 245 athletes received the money. “These are the athletes who initially did not receive the right to compete in international competitions, and those who did not receive neutral status,” Sengleev said.

In October last year, the head of the ROC Stanislav Pozdnyakov revealed the amount of payments to participants in the Olympic Games of different years who are currently active athletes. “500 thousand rubles will be paid to gold medalists, 350 thousand rubles to silver medalists, and 250 thousand rubles to bronze medalists. 150 thousand rubles will be paid to participants in the Olympic Games,” he noted.

The 2024 Olympics will be held in Paris from July 26 to August 11. Russians and Belarusians were allowed to compete as individual neutral athletes.
