ISSF supports IOC recommendations for Belarusian athletes’ return to competitions

MINSK, 26 April (BelTA) — The Executive Committee of the International Shooting Sport Federation discussed the recommendations of the IOC to assess a pathway for the return of neutral athletes holding a Russian or Belarusian passport to individual international competitions, BelTA learned from the ISSF official website.

“The Executive Committee supports the arguments mentioned by the IOC with respect to the proposed return of athletes who are to no extent involved in the war. The Executive Committee agreed to create an ad hoc commission to explore the timeline for the return of these athletes under strict conditions of eligibility. The ISSF will work in close collaboration with the IOC and ASOIF on drafting respective eligibility rules, defining the independent review process necessary to also ensure that only neutral athletes, who are not contracted to the Russian or Belarusian military or national security agencies may be considered,” the ISSF statement reads.
