Darya Klishina, a Russian long jumper, will be permitted to compete in these Rio Olympics, after the Court of Aribtration for Sports (CAS) ruled in her favor.
As CNN details, Klishina was suspended by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) last week based on unspecified “new information it received,” after having been the only Russian track and field athlete cleared to compete.
When the CAS announced that Klishina was cleared, they said that the IAAF had purported to have found Klishina “was directly affected and tainted” by Russia’s systemic doping scheme, and that they were “certain of the athlete’s samples has been subject to tampering and manipulation.”
However, the CAS released a statement, again via CNN, that “[Klishina] established that she was subject to fully compliant drug-testing in and out of competition outside of Russia.”
