“We want clean athletes to compete at the Olympics and in all sports. I applaud the IOC for making this decision because we are always in favor of clean athletes competing and dopers and cheaters not taking spots from clean athletes. Today’s decision is another win for integrity, honesty, fair play and upholding the rules and spirit of competition, but it also puts the important spotlight on the existence of systemic state-sponsored doping, which must stop. Clean athletes and drug free sport must prevail.”
