More than 100 Russian🇷🇺 athletes have been banned🚫 from Rio Olympics. The number reached the three-figure mark💯 when all but six rowers🚣 were expelled by the International Rowing Federation(Fisa) after International Canoe Federation (ICF), Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) and World Sailing ejected 5⃣, 2⃣ and 1⃣ Russians, respectively. 68 track and field athletes and seven swimmers🏊 have already been denied participation in the games. However, the International Judo👊 Federation (IJF) and International Shooting🔫 Sport Federation (ISSF) along with the governing bodies of tennis🎾, triathlon and archery🏹 have cleared Russian competitors to compete in their respective events. The decision on which Russians go to Rio will be taken by Swiss Supreme Court⚖ Judge and CAS arbiter Ivo Eusebio, who will scrutinise🔎 the entry lists submitted by the IJF and other federations to ensure each competitor has undergone an acceptable number of drugs tests outside their homeland.
