On July 10, it became known that the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) did not allow any of the Russian athletes to the Olympic Games in Brazil, with the exception of Darya Klishina.
The decision of the organization caused a natural outrage in the Russian sports circles. Thus, the Minister of Sport of the Russian Federation, Vitaly Mutko, called for the IAAF to be disbanded, comparing its actions with “bacchanalia”.
Statements of the IAAF well-known Russian high jumper with a pole Elena Isinbayeva called “very smelly” “pshik”. The athlete urged to wait for the decision of the sports arbitration court in Lausanne, which will make a conclusion about whether the ban on the performance of Russian athletes in Rio is legal.
