IOC won't make a decision on Russia's participation in Paris Olympics, but it will tell international sports federations which athletes can compete.
The long-awaited Tokyo 2020 Olympics had us all enthralled in 2021 but thoughts are already turning to the next Summer Games. Following on from London 2012, Rio de Janeiro 2016 and Tokyo 2020, now comes Paris 2024.
Some Russian athletes can soon return to international sports, although their status for next year's Paris Olympics is still up in the air. The International Olympic Committee recommended Tuesday that individual athletes from Russia and Belarus should be allowed to return to competition under a neutral status as long as they have no military links.
More than 300 fencers signed an open letter published urging the sport's governing body and the IOC not to allow Russian fencers to compete.
