The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Tuesday dismissed the appeal filed by the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) against the decision to ban Russian athletes from next month’s Paralympic Games in Rio.
The decision was rendered by Governing Board of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) on August 7.
"As a consequence, the IPC decision is confirmed," CAS said.
The International Paralympic Committee is content with CAS dismissal of Russia's appeal against suspension, it said in a statement. The IPC will redistribute 267 slots secured by Russian athletes.
