Russian Olympic Committee athletes at the 2020 Summer Olympics

Prior to the 2019 decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Russia was expected to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, which took place from 23 July to 8 August 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] It would have been the country's seventh consecutive appearance at the Summer Olympics as an independent nation, but their athletes have been entered by and representing the "Russian Olympic Committee", using the acronym "ROC" for a country name.

This is the outcome of a decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on 9 December 2019 banning Russia from all international sport for four years, after it was found that data provided by the Russian Anti-Doping Agency had been manipulated by Russian authorities with a goal of protecting athletes involved in its state-sponsored doping scheme. As at the 2018 Winter Olympics, WADA would allow individual cleared Russian athletes to compete neutrally under a title to be determined (which may not include the name "Russia", unlike the use of "Olympic Athletes from Russia" in 2018).[2]

Russia later filed an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the WADA decision.[3] The Court of Arbitration for Sport, on review of Russia's appeal of its case from WADA, ruled on 17 December 2020 to reduce the penalty that WADA had placed. Instead of banning Russia from sporting events, the ruling allowed Russia to participate at the Olympics and other international events, but for a period of two years, the team cannot use the Russian name, flag, or anthem and must present themselves as "Neutral Athlete" or "Neutral Team". The ruling does allow for team uniforms to display "Russia" on the uniform as well as the use of the Russian flag colors within the uniform's design, although the name should be up to equal predominance as the "Neutral Athlete/Team" designation.[4] Russia can appeal the decision.[4]

On 19 February 2021, it was announced that Russia would compete under the acronym "ROC", after the name of the Russian Olympic Committee. On aftermatch, the IOC announced that the Russian national flag would be substituted by the flag of the Russian Olympic Committee. It would also not be allowed to use team uniforms bearing the words "Russian Olympic Committee", instead the acronym "ROC" would be added.[5]

On 15 April 2021, the uniforms for the Russian Olympic Committee athletes were unveiled, featuring the colours of the Russian flag.[6][7] On 22 April 2021, the replacement for Russia's anthem was approved by the IOC, after an earlier choice of the patriotic Russian war song "Katyusha" was rejected. A fragment of Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 is used.[8][9]

On 23 July 2021, the Russian Olympic Committee athletes appeared at the opening ceremony of the 2020 Summer Olympics.[10] With the usage of traditional Japanese characters order, named Gojūon, ROC is not translated into Japanese script and was pronounced āru ō shī, so it placed 77th in the parade, and not as scheduled just after the Refugee Olympic Team (ai ō shī) as had been announced.[citation needed] Representatives of the Russian Olympic Committee did not have Japanese transcription on the back of their nametag, which was carried in front. Channel 1, which was broadcasting the ceremonies, attributed this to the inability to display the name "ROC" in Japanese characters.[11]

The opening ceremony flag-bearers for the ROC are fencer Sofya Velikaya and volleyball player Maksim Mikhaylov.[12] Wrestler Abdulrashid Sadulaev is the flag-bearer for the closing ceremony.[13]

Thirty-three swimmers (19 men and 14 women) were selected to the Russian roster at the end of the trials, with the Olympic medalists Anastasia Fesikova (women's backstroke double) and Yuliya Yefimova (women's breaststroke double) racing in the pool at their fourth consecutive Games. Notable swimmers also featured the reigning world champions Evgeny Rylov in the men's backstroke double, world-record holder Anton Chupkov in the men's breaststroke double, Youth Olympic champions Andrey Minakov (sprint freestyle and butterfly) and junior world-record holder Kliment Kolesnikov (sprint freestyle and backstroke), and freestyle veteran and London 2012 bronze medalist Vladimir Morozov.[69]
