Moscow: Two Russian athletes said Sunday they have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to overturn the IAAF's ban on the Russian team competing in Olympic track and field.
Race walkers Denis Nizhegorodov and Svetlana Vasilyeva argue that a ban of the entire team is unfair punishment.
Nizhegorodov, an Olympic silver medalist in 2004, says "Competing at the Olympics is the main goal and main honor. We will get that right," in comments on agent Andrei Mitkov's website.
