• Russia banned from Paralympics over doping


    RIO DE JANEIRO: Russia was kicked out of the Rio Paralympic Games on Sunday (Monday in Manila) over “state-sponsored” doping revealed in an inquiry last month. “Their medals over morals attitude disgusts me,” said International Paralympics Committee (IPC) president Philip Craven as he announced Russia’s suspension from the body. The suspension means that Russia cannot compete in the Rio Paralympics from September 7 to September 18. The International Olympic Committee decided to let Russia into the Rio Olympics now underway, but eliminated 100 athletes who were filtered out by individual federations.
