The new World Triathlon Federation punishes Russia

The World Triathlon Federation has issued a new reprimand against Russia. At the end of last year, the union had decided that the country, now accused by most of the world of invading Ukraine, will not be allowed to hold international competitions in 2022. This was the result of several doping cases. The situation in Ukraine is now leading to Russian and Belarusian athletes and officials being banned from international triathlon competitions.

The decision, which follows Monday’s recommendation from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), will be reviewed by the World Triathlon Executive Committee at its monthly meetings as the situation develops.

The international table tennis federation ITTF has also immediately suspended all Russian and Belarusian athletes and officials. They are no longer welcome at competitions organized by the World Federation.
