MOSCOW (Reuters) - International sailing federation World Sailing said on Tuesday it had provisionally confirmed that six Russian competitors could compete in the Rio Olympics.
World Sailing said in a statement on its website that Pavel Sozykin was denied eligibility for the Rio games because of the findings of the McLaren report commissioned by the World Anti-doping Agency.
Fellow Russian competitors Stefania Elfutina, Maxim Oberemko, Lyudmila Dmitrieva, Alisa Kirilyuk, Sergey Komissarov and Denis Gribanov can however take part in the Rio games, the statement said.
