Ennis-Hill admits fears over Russian athletes in Rio


LONDON: Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill admits she would have doubts over Russian athletes if they are allowed to take part in the Rio Games later this year. Russia is currently banned from international competition after a World Anti-Doping Agency report revealed “state-sponsored” doping in the country. It remains to be seen whether an IAAF suspension will be lifted in time for Russia to participate when the Olympics comes to Rio in August, but British star Ennis-Hill says the country would compete under a cloud of suspicion.
