Russians and Belarusians to participate in 2032 Summer Olympics

Russians and Belarusians to participate in 2032 Summer Olympics

Canberra, Mar 27 (Prensa Latina) Russian and Belarusian athletes will participate in the Brisbane 2032 Summer Olympics, the executive director of the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), Matt Carroll said.

The AOC’s position is that of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Carroll said, as quoted by The Canberra Times newspaper.

He added that allowing athletes from both nations to participate in international tournaments will create an opportunity ‘to unite the world’.

As requested by the IOC executive committee on January 25, the return under a neutral flag should be allowed, although some countries threatened to boycott the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, which Carroll considered a mistake.

You will recall the boycott by several countries in (Moscow) 1980. Australia’s prime minister many years later said it was the country’s wrong decision, he said.

On a recent visit to Havana, IOC head Thomas Bach was confident that there is still time for sports authorities to avoid a boycott in Paris 2024.
