The IOC has admitted Russians to the Games in Paris

Russian and Belarusian athletes will be able to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris in a neutral status. This will only apply to individual events, and the athletes themselves must meet certain criteria.

This decision was made by the Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), according to the organization's official website. It is noted that to date, only 11 representatives of the two countries (eight from Russia and three from Belarus) have won the right to compete at the Games in the French capital.

Athletes with a Russian or Belarusian passport who qualify for the tournament will be declared as individual neutral athletes and will be titled with the abbreviation AIN. Teams from the Russian Federation and Belarus will not be allowed. In addition, all athletes who actively support the war in Ukraine or have contracts with the military or security forces will not be able to participate in the competition.
