RUSSIAN SPORTS MINISTRY WARNS ‘WE FIXED PISTORIOUS, WE CAN FIX ANYONE'
It’s a Nyet from the IPC
THE IPC HAS upheld its decision to ban all Russian Paralympians from Brazil 2016.
A spokesman said, "Unlike our counterparts at the IOC we taking a stand and showing that we have balls and we're going to use them. Which is ironic when you think about it cos quite a few of our competitors have balls that….anyway."
The IPC said that accusations that Russian Paralympians had been banned for taking medication and painkillers to help manage their conditions were ridiculous.
"Where would you get that idea from? Next you'll be saying that because the Brazillian’s have withdrawn funding we're trying to reduce the number of athletes to make sure we don't have to pay out much."
Russian sports ministry spokeswoman Nicola Sturgeon said, "These people need to be very careful. We fixed Pistorius, we can fix anyone."
