On 18 July 2016, an independent investigation commissioned by World Anti-Doping Agency reported that Russia's Ministry of Sport and Federal Security Service had operated a "state-dictated" system to implement an extensive doping program and to cover up positive samples. Based on these finding the International Olympic Committee called for an emergency meeting to consider banning Russia from the Summer Olympics.[2]

On 24 July 2016, the International Olympic Committee announced that Russian athletes are eligible to compete at the Games only if they can show that they had not been doping before the Games, unlike participants of any other nationality.[3] Originally Russia submitted a list of 389 athletes for competition. On 7 August 2016, the IOC cleared 278 athletes, while 111 were removed because of the scandal.[4][5]

On 8 December 2016, silver medalist Misha Aloyan was found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation after testing positive for Tuaminoheptane, a specified stimulant, prohibited in-competition under S6 on the WADA Prohibited List, during an in-competition doping control on 21 August 2016. The results obtained by the athlete in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were disqualified.[6]

Participation requirements due to doping allegationsEdit

In 2015, due to allegations of an extensive state sponsored doping program in the Russian Federation, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) commissioned an investigation into the accusations. The report of this investigation was published in November 2015, reported widespread doping as well as actions between coaches and official testing laboratories to cover it up.[7]

On 9 November 2015 and based on its findings, WADA announced that it was Russia's obligation to implement an effective anti-doping program compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code (WADC). In regard to specific allegations against the All-Russia Athletic Federation (ARAF), WADA announced that the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) should not allow any ARAF track and field athletes to compete in international sporting events, including all Russian athletes never found positive in any test, until that organization became compliant with the WADC.[7]

On 21 June 2016, due to Russia's national anti-doping organization having been declared non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided that the eligibility of all athletes to compete in the 2016 Olympics should be based on an individual case by case basis by the International Federation governing each sport.[8] The IOC affirmed an earlier special circumstance decision by the International Association of Athletics Federations banning all of the All-Russia Athletic Federation track and field athletes from competing in 2016 Olympics.[8][9]

On 18 July 2016, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) presented a second more detailed report, finding that Russia's Ministry of Sport and Federal Security Service (FSB) had operated a "state-dictated" system to implement an extensive doping program and to cover up positive samples.[10] The report was conducted by Richard McLaren, a Canadian law professor appointed by WADA. Based on his finding, the International Olympic Committee called for an emergency meeting to consider banning Russia from the Summer Olympics.[2] On 24 July 2016, the IOC Executive Committee decided against completely banning Russian participation and instead decided to set additional, stricter requirements for all Russian participants entered into the Olympic Games:[3]

Under these exceptional circumstances, Russian athletes in any of the 28 Olympic summer sports have to assume the consequences of what amounts to a collective responsibility in order to protect the credibility of the Olympic competitions, and the “presumption of innocence” cannot be applied to them. On the other hand, according to the rules of natural justice, individual justice, to which every human being is entitled, has to be applied. This means that each affected athlete must be given the opportunity to rebut the applicability of collective responsibility in his or her individual case.

The IOC Executive Board specified that in order to be admitted every participant would need to be evaluated by the International Federation of the sport he/she was entered to compete in, unlike participants of any other nationality. The federation has to evaluate participants individually based on World Anti-Doping Code and other principles decided by the IOC and cannot take into account doping tests undertaken by Russian anti-doping authorities, but only "reliable adequate international tests". Furthermore, Russian athletes with a previous anti-doping decision can not participate, even after the sanction has been served, again unlike participants of any other nationality.[3]

The positive evaluation of every eligible participant is to be confirmed by a CAS arbitrator, which is "independent from any sports organization involved in the Olympic Games Rio 2016".[3] On 30 July 2016, the IOC specified that following each federation's positive evaluation and its arbitration approval, a three-person IOC panel would be making the final decision.[11] Originally Russia submitted a list of 389 athletes for competition. On 7 August 2016, the IOC cleared 278 athletes, while 111 were removed because of the scandal.[4][5]

AthleticsEdit

On 17 June 2016, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) announced that Russia will not be permitted to field competitors in athletics due to the November 2015 doping-related temporary suspension of the All-Russia Athletic Federation (ARAF) from the IAAF, due to state-sponsored doping. Only Russian athletes tested mainly outside of the country under stringent measures would be allowed to participate in the 2016 Olympics.[12][13] On 21 June 2016, the International Olympic Committee upheld the decision of the IAAF and banned ARAF from competing at the Summer Olympics.[8] One month later, the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected separate ARAF and "68 Claimant Athletes" appeals of the IAAF decision.[14]

On 24 July 2016, the IOC rejected the IAAF and the World Anti-Doping Agency recommendation that if allowed Russian athletes could only compete as "neutral" athletes under the Olympic flag. Under Olympic Rules only nationally selected athletes could compete in the Olympics.[15] Out of the 68 ARAF submitted athletes, only Darya Klishina was allowed to compete.[16][17]

WeightliftingEdit

Russian weightlifters had qualified their reduced maximum of six men's and four women's quota places for the Rio Olympics based on their combined team standing by points at the 2014 and 2015 IWF World Championships.

On 22 June 2016, the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) announced that Russia would lose two quota places in weightlifting at the 2016 Olympics because of doping violations. IWF then went on to state that if the testing of 'B' samples proved to confirm that any country had three or more violations in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic re-testing programme, then that country would be suspended from international weightlifting for a period of one year, and would thereby be excluded from taking part in the Rio Olympics, alongside the already suspended Bulgaria. IWF clarified that after re-testing 'A' samples from 2008 and 2012 that the three countries thereby scheduled for suspension were Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus. Russia appealed the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 6 July 2016.[18]

On 29 July 2016, the International Weightlifting Federation issued a statement, stating that "the integrity of the weightlifting sport has been seriously damaged on multiple times and levels by the Russians, therefore an appropriate sanction was applied in order to preserve the status of the sport." The IWF noted that four further retests from Russian medalists at the 2012 Games had come back positive, that two of the Russian team had been withdrawn for previous bans in accordance with the IOC decision of 24 July 2016, and that of the remaining six entries from Russia, four were implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology' uncovered by the McLaren report into state-sanctioned doping. IWF expressed its 'extreme shock and disappointment' at the statistics, stated that the Russian weightlifting had brought the sport into disrepute, and then sanctioned Russian weightlifting with a complete ban from the Games,(also excluding all Russian athletes never found positive in any test; the second team to receive it after Bulgaria.[19] Following the decision, the Executive Board transferred to quota places that came available to Albania, Georgia and Macedonia (women) and to Belgium, Croatia, El Salvador, Mongolia and Serbia. The ban was upheld by the ad hoc division of the Court of Arbitration for Sports.[20]

ArcheryEdit

Russian archers qualified for the women's events after having secured a top eight finish in the team recurve at the 2015 World Archery Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark.[21][22] The archery team was named to the Olympic roster on 13 July 2016.[23]

On 25 July 2016, World Archery Federation announced that, following the criteria set down for the entry of Russian athletes to the 2016 Summer Olympics, that the three archers competing for Russia had been deemed eligible, having undertaken a significant number of anti-doping tests and procedures outside Russia, both in and out of competition.[24] On 4 August 2016, the IOC cleared all of the archers to participate.[25]

BoxingEdit

Russia has entered eleven boxers to compete in the following weight classes into the Olympic boxing tournament. Vladimir Nikitin and Adlan Abdurashidov were the only Russians finishing among the top two of their respective division in the World Series of Boxing, while three further boxers (Aloyan, Zamkovoy, and Chebotarev) did so in the AIBA Pro Boxing Series.[28] Vasily Yegorov, Vitaly Dunaytsev, and Evgeny Tishchenko had claimed their Olympic spots at the 2015 World Championships.[29]

Yaroslava Yakushina and Anastasia Belyakova were the only two Russian women to book their Olympic spots with a semifinal victory at the 2016 European Qualification Tournament in Samsun, Turkey, and with a quarterfinal victory at the Women's World Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan, respectively.[30] Meanwhile, Petr Khamukov secured an additional place on the Russian roster with his quarterfinal triumph at the 2016 AIBA World Qualifying Tournament in Baku, Azerbaijan.[31] All of the boxers were cleared for competition one day prior to the opening ceremony.[32] However, Tishchenko's final match and Nikitin's quarterfinal match became controversial, leading to the suspension of the referees in question.[33] Nikitin was forced to withdraw from his semifinal bout against Shakur Stevenson due to cuts he sustained in his previous bouts; he received a bronze medal.[34]

On 8 December 2016 Misha Aloyan was found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation after testing positive for Tuaminoheptane, a specified stimulant, prohibited in-competition under S6 on the WADA Prohibited List, during an in-competition doping control on 21 August 2016. The results obtained by the athlete in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were disqualified.[6]

SprintEdit

Russian canoeists have qualified a total of ten boats in each of the following distances for the Games through the 2015 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships.[37] Meanwhile, one additional boat was awarded to the Russian squad in men's K-1 1000 m by virtue of a top two national finish at the 2016 European Qualification Regatta in Duisburg, Germany.[38] As a response to the "multiple positive cases" of doping by Belarus and Romania, two further spare boats were accepted by the Russian team to round out the roster size to ten.

A total of 14 sprint canoeists (11 men and 3 women) were named to the Russian roster for the Games on 15 July 2016, with Alexander Dyachenko and Yury Postrigay looking to defend their men's sprint kayak double title at the Rio regatta.[39]

On 26 July 2016, the International Canoe Federation announced that five selected Russian sprint canoeists, namely Yelena Anyushina, Natalia Podolskaya, Alexander Dyachenko, Andrey Kraitor and Aleksey Korovashkov, had been implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology' set out in the McClaren Report on the nation's state-sponsored doping. As a result, the Russian entries in the men's C-1 200 m, men's C-2 1000 m, and men's K-2 200 m, along with the women's events (K-1 200 m, K-1 500 m, and K-2 500 m), were removed, with four of the quota places being provisionally re-allocated to the different NOCs – women's K-2 500 m to Austria, women's K-1 200 m to Germany, men's K-2 200 m to Sweden and men's C-1 200 m to Iran.[40] Kraitor's decision was reconsidered and was allowed to compete a day before the opening of the Games.[32]

CyclingEdit

RoadEdit

Russian riders qualified for the following quota places in the men's and women's Olympic road race by virtue of their top 15 final national ranking in the 2015 UCI Europe Tour (for men) and top 22 in the 2016 UCI World Ranking (for women).[41][42] The road cycling team, highlighted by two-time bronze medalist Olga Zabelinskaya from London 2012, was named to the Olympic roster on 26 June 2016.[43]

On 26 July 2016, UCI announced that three cyclists with previous bans had been withdrawn by ROC, these including Ilnur Zakarin, Olga Zabelinskaya and track rider Sergei Shilov. A further three unnamed riders were implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology' uncovered by Richard McLaren's report into state-sanctioned doping.[44][45] On 5 August 2016, the date of the Opening Ceremony, Zabelinskaya's, Shilov's and Zakarin's bans were reversed and they were cleared to compete.[46]

TrackEdit

Following the completion of the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, Russian riders have accumulated spots in the men's team pursuit and women's team sprint. As a result of their place in the women's team sprint, Russia has assured its right to enter two riders in the women's sprint and keirin. Although Russia failed to earn a place in the men's team sprint, they managed to secure a single berth in the men's keirin and two more in the men's sprint, by virtue of their final individual UCI Olympic rankings in those events.

On 26 July 2016, UCI announced that three cyclists with previous bans had been withdrawn by ROC, these including track rider Sergei Shilov. A further three unnamed riders were implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology' uncovered by Richard McLaren's report into state-sanctioned doping. The UCI confirmed that the men's pursuit team from which Shilov was excluded would be allowed to replace him only from the existing pool of accepted athletes. The following day, two further track cyclists, Kirill Sveshnikov and Dmitri Sokolov were named as implicated in the methodology, and withdrawn, placing the Russian entry in the men's team pursuit in doubt.[45][47]

Mountain bikingEdit

Russia has qualified one mountain biker for the women's Olympic cross-country race, as a result of her nation's ninth-place finish in the UCI Olympic Ranking List of 25 May 2016. Due to the lack of eligible NOCs for Oceania on the list, the unused berth was added to the Russian mountain biking team as the next highest-ranked nation, not yet qualified, in the men's cross-country race. Beijing 2008 bronze medalist Irina Kalentieva and rookie Anton Sintsov were named to Russia's mountain biking team for the Games on 3 July 2016.[48]

Modern pentathlonEdit

Russia has qualified a total of four modern pentathletes for the following events at the Games. Aleksander Lesun and Donata Rimšaitė had claimed one of three available Olympic quota places each in the men's and women's event at the 2015 World Championships in Berlin, Germany, while Egor Puchkarevskiy and Gulnaz Guybaidullina added a second spot each to the full roster through the European Championships. Maksim Kustov became the third Russian to qualify for the men's event in Rio, as a result of his world ranking as of 31 May 2016, leading to his selection to the Olympic team instead of Puchkarevskiy.[73]

On 26 July 2016, Maksim Kustov was named as one of the athletes implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology' as part of the McClaren Report on Russian state-sponsored doping, and excluded from the games, along with reserve Ilia Frolov. Because of this doping issue, The UIPM decided to revoke the quota place held by Kustov and thereby awarded it to Ruslan Nakoņečnijs of Latvia.[74]

RowingEdit

Russia had qualified a total of six boats for each of the following rowing classes into the Olympic regatta. Four rowing crews had confirmed Olympic places for their boats in the women's lightweight double sculls and large-boat classes (men's four, men's & women's eight) at the 2015 FISA World Championships in Lac d'Aiguebelette, France, while rowers competing in the men's lightweight four and quadruple sculls were further added to the Russian roster with their top two finish at the 2016 European & Final Qualification Regatta in Lucerne, Switzerland.

A total of 32 rowers (21 men and 11 women) were named to the Olympic roster on 13 June 2016, with Athens 2004 gold medalist Sergey Fedorovtsev leading the quadruple sculls crew at his fourth straight Games.[75] On 1 July 2016, Fedorovtsev and his men's quadruple sculls crew were disqualified from the Games for failing an off-season doping test on the former's banned substance trimetazidine, cutting the rowing team size to 28.[76]

On 25 July 2016, the International Rowing Federation (FISA) announced the first stage of its decision on Russian eligibility, following the decision of the International Olympic Committee in relation to the nation's athletes for the Games. According to the decision issued by the IOC on the previous day, FISA declared that one registered rower, Ivan Balandin, who had been implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology', was ineligible to compete and could not be replaced. Two more rowers, namely Anastasiia Karabelshchikova and Ivan Podshivalov, were ruled ineligible by reason of previous bans. While the qualified rowers may be moved to the affected boats, the decision placed the entry of the women's eight in doubt, as Russia will only have seven qualified rowers in the open weight category.[77]

The following day, FISA announced the second stage of its decision on Russian eligibility. Having considered the 'international' doping record of the remaining Russian rowers, others had evidently committed doping offences; thus, FISA could not be confident that all but six rowers entered by ROC had undergone sufficient international testing. As such, FISA could only accept entries from six rowers, including one lightweight four, namely Aleksandr Chaukin, Georgy Efremenko, Artyom Kosov, Nikita Morgachev, Vladislav Ryabtsev and Anton Zarutskiy.[78] No other rowers were sufficiently qualified to fill any of the boats, except the men's coxless four. FISA indicated that it was seeking clarification from Russian rowing as to whether they intended to take such place in the Games.[79] On 31 July 2016, FISA confirmed that the Russian team had accepted he invitation to field a men's coxless four, manned by four of the six cleared rowers; Anton Zarutskiy, Artyom Kosov, Vladislav Ryabtsev and Nikita Morgachev.[80]

Consequently, out of the original 28 rowers named to the official Olympic roster only 6 were allowed to compete in the Olympics.[78] Forfeited quota places were provisionally awarded to Greece (men's lightweight four), Italy (men's eight and women's lightweight double sculls), and Australia (women's eight). All three nations accepted their invitations.[80] On 3 August 2016, the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected a final appeal by seventeen of the excluded rowers, confirming the single boat for Russia at the Games.[81]

SailingEdit

Russian sailors have qualified one boat in each of the following classes through the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the individual fleet Worlds, and European qualifying regattas.[82] Following the completion of the Princess Sofia Trophy Regatta, the entire Russian sailing team was announced on 2 April 2016, with former Ukrainian windsurfer Maksym Oberemko aiming to appear at his sixth Olympics under a new banner.[83]

On 26 July 2016, World Sailing announced that 470 sailor Pavel Sozykin was deemed ineligible, as a result of his implication in the McClaren Report on Russian state-sponsored doping allegations. On 4 August 2016, Sozykin's removal was reversed and all five sailors were cleared to participate.[53]

Hence, six named sailors were eligible to compete, pending confirmation by a CAS arbitrator in line with the procedures set out on 24 July by IOC.[84]

ShootingEdit

Russian shooters have achieved quota places for the following events by virtue of their best finishes at the 2014 and 2015 International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships, the 2015 ISSF World Cup series, and European Championships or Games, as long as they obtained a minimum qualifying score (MQS) by 31 March 2016.[85]

On 26 July 2016, the ISSF approved the entire 18 athlete team to participate in the Olympics. This was done on the basis of none of the athletes ever being tested as positive for doping and none were included in WADA report on the systemic Russian doping program.[78] On 4 August 2016, the IOC confirmed the ruling and cleared all of the shooters to participate.[53]

SwimmingEdit

Russian swimmers have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following events (up to a maximum of 2 swimmers in each event at the Olympic Qualifying Time (OQT), and potentially 1 at the Olympic Selection Time (OST)):[86][87] To assure their selection to the Olympic team, swimmers must finish in the top two of each individual event with the federation's corresponding standard slightly faster than the FINA A-cut at the Russian Championships & Olympic Trials (April 16 to 23) in Moscow.[88]

A total of 37 swimmers (24 men and 13 women) were selected to the Russian roster for the Olympics, including London 2012 medalists Anastasia Valeryevna Zuyeva, Yuliya Yefimova, and Vladimir Morozov, and 2014 Youth Olympic backstroke champion Evgeny Rylov.[89]

On 25 July 2016, FINA, following the guidelines set out by the International Olympic Committee, announced that seven swimmers declared by the Russian Olympic Committee for the Rio games were deemed ineligible – four, Mikhail Dovgalyuk, Yuliya Yefimova, Nataliya Lovtsova and Anastasiya Krapyvina, because of previous doping bans, and three, Nikita Lobintsev, Vladimir Morozov and Daria Ustinova, because of being implicated in the 'disappearing positive methodology' uncovered by the McClaren report. The status of relay teams involving these ineligible swimmers remained unclear.[90] On August 4, 2016, Morozov and Lobintsev were reported to be cleared for participation by the IOC.[91] On 5 August 2016, the date of the opening ceremony, Yuliya Yefimova, Natalya Lovtsova, Daria Ustinova, Mikhail Dovgalyuk, and Anastasiya Krapyvina were cleared for participation.[46] Consequently, all of the declared Russian swimmers were allowed to participate.

TennisEdit

London 2012 silver medalist Maria Sharapova was ruled ineligible to compete at the Games, as the International Tennis Federation ordered her a two-year suspension for testing positive in the banned substance meldonium.[100]

Russia has entered eight tennis players (two men and six women) into the Olympic tournament. Andrey Kuznetsov (world no. 42) and Evgeny Donskoy (world no. 77) qualified directly for the men's singles as two of the top 56 eligible players in the ATP World Rankings, while Svetlana Kuznetsova (world no. 12), Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (world no. 23), Daria Kasatkina (world no. 31), and Ekaterina Makarova (world no. 36) did so for the women's singles based on their WTA World Rankings as of 6 June 2016.

Having been directly entered to the singles, Kuznetsova and Makarova also opted to play with their partners Margarita Gasparyan and Elena Vesnina, respectively, in the women's doubles, by virtue of the former's top-10 WTA ranking on the list.[25][101] Due to the withdrawal of several tennis players from the Games, Teymuraz Gabashvili (world no. 96) received a spare ITF Olympic place to join Donskoy and Kuznetsov in the men's singles.

On 14 July 2016, Gasparyan withdrew from the Olympics due to injury and was replaced with Kasaktina to be partnered with Kuznetsova.[102]

On 24 July 2016, the International Tennis Federation announced that, following the criteria set down for the entry of Russian athletes to the 2016 Summer Olympics, that the eight players competing for Russia had been deemed eligible, having undertaken a significant number of anti-doping tests and procedures outside Russia, both in and out of competition.[103][104] On 4 August 2016, the IOC cleared all of the players to participate.[53]

WrestlingEdit

Russia has fielded a full squad of seventeen wrestlers across all weight classes (except women's freestyle 53 kg) into the Olympic competition. Majority of Olympic berths were awarded to Russian wrestlers, who finished among the top six of their respective weight classes at the 2015 World Championships, while three more secured their Olympic spots each in the men's Greco-Roman 59 & 85 kg and women's freestyle 63 kg at the 2016 European Qualification Tournament.[117][118]

Two further wrestlers had claimed the remaining Olympic slots each in the women's freestyle 58 & 75 kg to complete the Russian wrestling line-up at the final meet of the World Qualification Tournament in Istanbul.

The men's freestyle wrestling team was named to the Olympic roster on 6 July 2016, with the women joining them on July 19.[119][120] The men's Greco-Roman wrestlers rounded out the squad on 22 July 2016.[121]

On 28 July, United World Wrestling announced that four-time world medalist Viktor Lebedev was deemed ineligible to compete and had his quota place revoked in the men's freestyle 57 kg, by reason of his previous doping ban.[122] The rest of wrestlers were cleared to compete.[122] On August 6, the IOC recanted their decision on the international doping ban, allowing Lebedev and others to compete in Rio.

Key:

  • VT – Victory by Fall.
  • PP – Decision by Points – the loser with technical points.
  • PO – Decision by Points – the loser without technical points.
  • ST – Decision by points – the loser without technical points and a margin of victory of at least 8 (Greco-Roman) or 10 (freestyle) points.
