Seems that official stream in a first day will not cover korfball, air sports and bowling; there was a link to watch the first one, what about other two? (at least there will be medal round in women's bowling not steamed)
Zakarin can also be added to the list of people who won't participate. 3. The ROC is not allowed to enter any athlete for the Olympic Games Rio 2016 who has ever been sanctioned for doping, even if he or she has served the sanction. Lol, people are sick of Efimova, I'm sick of Gatlin and Gay. But these guys will participate and fight for the medals. About volleyball - I think that Russia will participate, president of FIVB had said about it earlier.
Yeah, I've read that letter. If I'm not mistaken, he didn't get any answer? One more note from Russians. You said about anger of Russian sports fans - yes, many of us have that feeling. In the end it's hard to believe anyone about this deal. Of course, as every person, I wait for positive ending of the story, but things are going worse and worse. I also waited for some actions from WADA to build anti-doping control in Russia by itself(or some documents how it should be done), but there are none of them and it's the worst thing in all the story. It's easy to destroy and hard to
Oh, IOC decided to cancel presumption of innocence of Russian athletes about doping. So, should athlete by himself go to foreign ADA and tell officers there to take test from him?)) Because it's unusual situation and we need to know how it should work(do they mean all sportspeople from every sport? Should, for exmaple, Russian speedway(or in any other motorsport) team do something in that situation?
In real life I have some connection with Russian national speedway team (Polish guys should know what it is), and even riders write that they are a bit scared how it can influence on them (but to be honest, there is no connection between them and IOC, cause we would never see motorsports in Olympics).
I would add that even in most Russian-hating newspapers there it is everywhere written that number of proofs and facts is close to zero, and the point of discussion shouldn't be "if Russia should be disqualified", but " if that story is true".
