    I don’t think it will have any effects on RG though. Can’t imagine Rita, Yana or the group girls being positive for anything. The kabaeva and tchachina saga won’t happen again. They have been clean as a whistle since then. My biggest fear with this Russian witch-hunt is that Zhenya’s or Isinbaeva’s samples from Beijing/London comes out positive for some stupid drug if they retest them.

    BBC: Rio 2016: IOC panel to have final say on Russian athletes’ participation
    31 July 2016
    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) says a three-person panel will have the final say on which Russian athletes can compete at the Rio Games.

    Last week the IOC said individual sports’ governing bodies must decide if Russian competitors are clean amid claims of state-sponsored doping.

    But it now says the newly convened panel “will decide whether to accept or reject that final proposal”.

    More than 250 Russian athletes have so far been cleared to compete.

    The three-person panel comprises Ugur Erdener, president of World Archery and head of the IOC medical and scientific commission, Claudia Bokel of the IOC athletes commission, and Spanish IOC member Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr, son of the ex-IOC president of the same name.
