Andrey Rublev

Andrei Rublev (Russia), the 2021 Tokyo Olympics tennis mixed doubles gold medalist, will not be participating in this year’s Paris Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) updated the status of individual neutral athletes on the 3rd and announced, “Rublev has declined to participate in the Paris Olympics.”

The IOC will only allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to compete in this year’s Paris Olympics as individual neutral athletes (AINs).

Athletes from Russia, which invaded Ukraine in 2022, and Belarus, which helped Russia during the invasion, will not be allowed to use their national flag or anthem at these Olympics, and only athletes who have received permission from the IOC to compete will be allowed to compete as individual neutral athletes. 파워볼사이트

Rublev received permission from the IOC to compete in the Paris Olympics in late June, but decided not to compete. The IOC did not disclose the reason for his decision.

Rublev, ranked 6th in the world in singles, is not believed to have suffered an injury as he was eliminated in the first round of the men’s singles at the Wimbledon tennis tournament held in London, England on the 3rd.

In addition to Rublev, Darya Kasatkina (12th, Russia) in women’s singles also decided not to compete in the Paris Olympics.

On the other hand, Daniil Medvedev (5th, Russia) and Viktoria Azaranka (16th, Belarus) have announced their intention to compete in the Paris Olympics.
