Court of arbitration for sport (CAS) called for the suspension of Ineligibility Russian skiers Alexander and Evgenia Belova passenger cars from 1 November 2017, unless there are new facts and evidence after further investigations.

Data from the report of the independent Commission of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) Richard McLaren can not serve as sufficient proof of guilt, passenger cars and Belov, who removed from the competition. This is stated in the reasoning of the CAS decision, caught in the disposal media. On the official website of the court this information yet.

This means that athletes will be able to participate in competitions in the winter season and the Olympic games, if after further investigation found not to be new facts and evidence.

“The jury considers it possible that after further investigation the collected evidence base will lead to the exoneration of the athletes. The evidence that we already know, namely the McLaren report and supporting documents will be evaluated by the Board, insufficient to prove the guilt of a particular athlete,” quoted the verdict of the CAS, the Agency “R-Sport”.

“There is a widespread view that the reference to athletes in the report of the McLaren is a sufficient evidence of their involvement in the Russian doping system, created by Dr. by Rodchenkova in Russia. This is absolutely not the case,” the statement reads.

Recall that the international ski Federation (FIS) 23 of December, on the basis of the report of Richard McLaren was suspended from competition in the Olympic games in Sochi – passenger cars, Belova, Alexey Petukhov, Maxim Vylegzhanin, Yevgeny Shapovalov and Yulia Ivanova.

The skiers challenged this decision to the CAS, the court rejected the request for temporary suspension of removal and upheld their suspension from competition until 31 October 2017.

After this date, athletes will be able to participate in the competition if they are not convicted of violating anti-doping rules in connection with the emergence of new data.
