Yelena Isinbayeva

Russia have named a 68-strong athletics team for the Rio Olympics despite being banned from international competition. Athletics’ governing body – the IAAF – first imposed the ban in November following allegations of widespread state-sponsored doping in the country. The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) and its athletes last week appealed against the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). A final decision is due by 21 July.
