According to the statement Jamaican made regarding the dope ban, It has sent a storng message across the Athletes.
That means Russian track and field athletes will remain banned from the Olympics following claims the country ran a state-sponsored doping programme.
The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) and 68 Russian athletes attempted to overturn the suspension, implemented by the body that governs world athletics. But the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has ruled it can stand. Just few of the Russian Athletes will participate as neutrals at the Rio Games, from 5th August.
Olympic 100m and 200m champion Usain Bolt said “It’s sad but rules are rules.” And he is targeting more gold medals in Rio.
He said it was important to send a strong message to the dopers.
“Doping violations in track and field is getting really bad,” said the Jamaican, 29. “If you cheat or go or against the rules, this will scare a lot of people.”
