1ST LEAD CAS rules Darya Klishina eligible to compete at Rio Games By John Bagratuni, dpa

Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has allowed Russia‘s lone track and field athlete, long jumper Darya Klishina, to compete at the Rio Games.

In a statement, the court said it granted Klishina‘s appeal because she fulfilled the requirements laid out by the ruling athletics body IAAF and indicated that she could compete in qualifying on Tuesday.

US-based Klishina was the only Russian athlete allowed in at the Rio Games by the IAAF because she underwent doping tests outside Russia. The IAAF then suspended her on Saturday based on new information from a report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren.

But the CAS said "the previous decision of the IAAF, that the athlete complied with the relevant criteria because of her permanent residence outside Russia, still applied despite the additional information provided by Prof. McLaren."

That July 24 report for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) revealed widespread and state-sponsored doping in Russia.

Russia escaped a blanket ban despite the grave allegations, but its athletes had to meet strict criteria to compete in Brazil, with some 280 of them now at the Games.

United States-based Klishina had been the only Russian track and field athlete allowed to compete in Rio, after the Russian athletics federation was suspended over doping practices in the country and its other 67 proposed Olympic athletes were banned - a ruling that was confirmed by CAS last month.

Klishina, the two-time European indoor champion, came in for criticism at home and was accused of being a traitor on some Russian social media sites.
