IPC readmits Russia, with strict conditions

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has today (Friday) announced that it will conditionally lift the suspension of the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) after conceding that it needs to move the situation forward.

The IPC first suspended the RPC on August 7, 2016 due to its inability to fulfil membership obligations in the wake of the doping scandal that enveloped Russian sport. As the only global sporting body to have a blanket ban in place, the suspension has prohibited the RPC from entering all its athletes into any IPC sanctioned competitions.
