Olympics: CAS judged 21 cases, five Russians still outstanding

RIO DE JANEIRO, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 6th Augst,2016) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has said that they had ruled on 21 cases since July 26, but there were still five Russian appeals to be decided. The pending cases involve wrestler Viktor Lebedev, swimmer Daria Ustinova, canoeists Natalia Podolskaya and Alexander Dyachenko as well as sailor Pavel Sozykin.

CAS has ploughed through a workload weighed down by the fall out from the Russian doping scandal where the International Olympic Committee left it to individual federations to decide on whether athletes were cleared for Rio. Those cases dismissed include the Russian weightlifting team and 17 rowers.
