Russian athletes ~ Paris Olympics

Personally, I can’t see any way to fairly allow some athletes who represent Russia to compete in Paris 2024, while disallowing others.

That would be worst case scenario. The IOC would be humiliated.

The IOC should give Putin a deadline to withdraw from Ukraine, or have his nation and Belarus officially banned.

Russian athletes who do not endorse their country’s war in Ukraine could be accepted back into international sports, competing under a neutral flag, IOC president Thomas Bach said in an interview published Friday. …
