Rio Olympics 2016: Russian athletes are arriving, but how many will compete?

Russian athletes began to arrive in Rio on Monday

Olympic Games on the BBC
Venue: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Dates: 5-21 August Time in Rio: BST -4

How many Russians will compete at the Rio Olympics next month?

The World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) had recommended they all be banned. That was after its independently commissioned report found evidence of a four-year, state-run "doping programme" across the "vast majority" of Olympic sports. But the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has said individual sporting federations must rule on whether Russians can compete.

Russia escapes blanket Olympic ban- Russia Rio decision sends wrong message - Wada

Russia's full Olympic team would have consisted of 387 competitors but the country's track and field athletes are already barred by athletics' governing body. Of the 28 Olympic sports there are no Russian football, rugby, basketball or hockey teams. The rest of the sports must rule and then put their decision forward to be ratified by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).

So which federations have decided already? And what have they decided?

Cybathlon 2016 in der Swiss Arena in Kloten

Über den Cybathlon
Menschen mit Behinderungen treffen im Alltag auf viele Hindernisse und Barrieren. Um sich selbständig bewegen zu können, sind sie deshalb viele auf Assistenztechnologien angewiesen – diese werden den individuellen Bedürfnissen ihrer Benutzer jedoch nur selten gerecht.
Aus diesem Grund veranstaltet die ETH Zürich im Oktober 2016 den ersten Cybathlon, an dem sich Menschen mit Behinderungen aus aller Welt mithilfe neuster Assistenzsysteme in einem einzigartigen Sportwettkampf messen. Auf sportliche Art und Weise sollen damit internationale Forschungsteams und Technologieanbieter angeregt werden, in enger Zusammenarbeit mit Menschen mit Behinderungen, Technologien zu entwickeln, die ihre Anwender und Anwenderinnen auch tatsächlich im Alltag unterstützen.
In den 6 Cybathlon-Disziplinen treten daher nicht austrainierte Profis an.
