1ST LEAD IOC will decide within seven days over Russia doping ban By Andreas Schirmer, dpa

Dusseldorf (dpa) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will decide on a possible blanket ban of Russian athletes for next month‘s Olympic Games within seven days.

An IOC spokesperson told dpa this was the time frame for a decision on whether or not to exclude all Russian athletes from the Rio Games, which begin on August 5.

The president of the Russian National Olympic Committee, Alexander Shukov, meanwhile said he believed there could be a decision by the end of the week "maybe on Sunday."

The IOC executive board on Tuesday deferred making a decision on whether to impose a blanket ban on Russian athletes.

Following a report by the World Anti-Doping Agency‘s independent person Richard McLaren on state-run doping in Russia, the IOC executive board said Tuesday it would explore the "legal options" for a complete ban.

The IOC is also waiting for Thursday‘s ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on the eligibility of 68 Russian athletes.

The athletes have appealed to compete in Rio following the suspension of the Russian athletics federation by athletics ruling body IAAF.

In Germany, Dagmar Freitag, the head of the parliamentary sports committee said Wednesday IOC president Thomas Bach would now have follow up his words about zero tolerance on doping with deeds.

"We now need a president of the International Olympic Committee who meets his leadership role and shows strength of leadership," she told dpa.

Instead of waiting for federations to act, Bach should "precede and set out an approach for which he is prepared to fight for a majority on the IOC executive board," she said.
