[Photo/VCG]RIO DE JANEIRO – The Russian Paralympic Committees (RPC) appeal against their ban from Rio 2016 will be heard on Monday (August 22), 24 hours later than originally planned, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced on Friday.The RPC officially launched its appeal last week to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), whose ad-hoc Division will deliberate over the case in the Brazilian city.A verdict was due to be revealed on Monday but the decision will now be published a day after on Tuesday (August 23), two days after the Closing Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.”The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has scheduled the appeal for Monday and a final decision will be announced by the CAS by noon CEST on Tuesday, 23 August,” the IPC confirmed in a statement.The IPC decided to impose a blanket ban on Russia on August 7 following the release of the McLaren Report, which alleged the presence of a state-sponsored doping scheme in the country.The Canadian lawyer revealed what he described as the “disappearing positive methodology” – where positive samples were switched for clean ones – in the explosive report.A total of 35 “disappearing positives” were found in Paralympic sport, according to the report, although only 21 of these were within the IPC remit.Since then, another 10 such cases have been brought to the attention of the IPC.Russia was always likely to contest the decision of the IPC, which has been criticized in the country and by various organizations and International Federations, including the Association of National Olympic Committees and World Archery among others.The Rio 2016 Paralympics will run from September 7 to 18. 0Related StoriesNo blanket Olympic ban for Russia is the right responseIOC decision on Russia slammed by Australian athletes, supported by Olympic officialsWADA disappointed by IOC decision on RussiaIOC will not impose blanket ban on Russia for Rio OlympicsPhotoPyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay kicks offTokyo marks 1,000 days until 2020 Olympic GamesFed Express eclipses his old foe Rafa againChinese sprinter Su Bingtian and wife hold wedding ceremony in hometownLi Na tastes local delicacy during WTA Wuhan OpenPlayer party held for 2017 WTA Wuhan OpenMost PopularWhats HotChina team 2nd in synchronized swimming technical routineHighlightsTouching stories behind the first Olympics gold medals at RioChinese mens table tennis overcomes singles loss to win team eventPhoto finishes at Rio OlympicsKlishina seeks Russian redemption in long jump finalSpecialRio 2016 Olympic Games2016 Chinese F1 Grand Prix in ShanghaiShanghai Rolex MastersIAAF World Championships Beijing 2015…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
