Russian athletes are competing as Russian Olympic Committee at Tokyo Games. Team was banned from major international tournaments over a doping scandal . That summer, Russia was still allowed to host the football World Cup as if the doping scandal had never taken place.

The Murad Aliyev boxer eliminated Tokyo Olympics on disqualification of the arbitrator in the 91 kg + Sunday denounced the "scandalous" after the tournament supervisor acknowledged "a refereeing error," the french clan.

"They recognize they made a mistake but as it says they can not reverse the decision. It's a scandal," Aliyev denounced on France Télévisions.

"There is no remedy," said John Dovi, the national technical director of boxing. "The supervisor attests to a refereeing error, he said that there is no error on the part of Mourad but they can not do anything."

Canada Olympics schedule today: Day-by-day TV coverage to watch Team Canada at 2021 Tokyo Games

  Canada Olympics schedule today: Day-by-day TV coverage to watch Team Canada at 2021 Tokyo Games Sporting News has you covered on how to watch every Team Canada competition, including start times and TV channels for every sport, every day of the Tokyo Olympics.Canada is filled with gold-medal dreams as 370 athletes — including heavy favourites such as swimmer Penny Oleksiak and sprinter Andre De Grasse — take the field, pool, court or floor across Tokyo and Japan. While there are a number of first-timers, there's also a handful of athletes who are competing in a sport that's making its debut in 2021, such as sports climbing and skateboarding.

Ryan Murphy, Evgeny Rylov and Luke Greenbank all spoke about doping after the 200m backstroke final. The World Anti-Doping Agency has banned official Russian teams from Tokyo 2020 , the 2022 Winter Olympics and the 2022 World Cup as a punishment for covering up a massive state-sponsored doping programme. The country’s flag and anthem are banned too. However, Russian athletes can still compete as neutrals – in both individual and team events – if they have not been banned for doping.

Boxing is on the brink of excluding itself from the Olympic Games after an internal political dispute. A litany of corruption scandals in recent years has seen the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) locked in a battle with itself and with the International Olympic Committee, culminating in the threat that, should current frontrunner Gafur Rakhimov win, the IOC - which has already frozen payments to AIBA - could remove boxing as an Olympic sport ahead of the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

Since the announcement of the decision in the ring, Aliyev denounced injustice.

"It's unfair, everyone saw I won," yelled Aliyev, still in the ring while the referee had just mean his disqualification for a head blow to his opponent Briton Frazer Clarke.

Incredulous and angry, Aliyev, who seemed to dominate the fight after a first round winner gave three judges to two, then circled the ring, going to see his opponent to say "it's me who won."

During the fight, Clarke had to be treated twice left eyebrow and it was after the second treatment the referee, gathering the boxers, has signified its decision.

Following the formalization of the result by the speakeur, the French then made the sign + no + with his fingers in front of cameras.

Sitting still on the edge of the ring a few minutes after the decision, Aliyev and his clan did not seem to believe it.

Fredericton Greens back in the fight for progressive voters

  Fredericton Greens back in the fight for progressive voters The federal Greens now have their standard-bearer in an increasingly perilous battle to win over left-leaning New Brunswick voters heading into a likely national election. The party has nominated law professor Nicole O'Byrne as the candidate it hopes can hold onto Fredericton, the one federal riding east of Vancouver Island that the party managed to win last time. That makes the race in the capital the focus of an age-old political tug-of-war.

Speaking on Fox News, he continued: 'Voting is not just a right. It's also a responsibility. You have to learn our country's history, its culture, its language, its values to be able to make an informed decision about voting.' He stated: 'Americans are Americans. Citizens are citizens and dreamers, so-called, are illegal immigrants We deprive people of this country of their language, of their ability to be able to speak clearly, and to say: 'No, if you come here illegally you are not a citizen.

It marked the official opening of Tokyo 2020 , a year later than planned, and in the midst of a global pandemic. Perhaps as expected, Friday's opening ceremony was not of the usual ilk. No carnival like Rio, no skydiving monarchs like London, but a more sombre tone, a sobering reminder that this is a Games taking place in a world still facing its toughest challenge. "Today is a moment of hope," said Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

"It's not possible, I have won, everyone saw it," he continued to repeat.

"We tried to do a sit-in," said John Dovi. "It came to nothing, limit they had to call the police to dislodge us, so we will leave and we go home," he added.

"It's like having convicted an innocent knowing he was innocent," said Aliyev, very disappointed. "We're talking about Olympic values, but they are not met, I go empty-handed when it was fighting for the medal," he lamented.

Eliminating Aliyev marks the end of medal hopes for France in boxing in Tokyo, with over tricolor no representative is in contention.

Pacquiao, Ugás unafraid to make title fight on short notice .
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Pacquiao could have postponed or canceled his boxing comeback when opponent Errol Spence Jr. dropped out less than two weeks before their Aug. 21 showdown. Instead, the former eight-division champion quickly found some right-handed sparring partners and went right back to work preparing for a new opponent on very short notice. “I’m not disappointed at all, because my hard work in training is not wasted,” Pacquiao said Wednesday. Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) didn't hesitate to replace Spence with Yordenis Ugás (26-4, 12 KOs), the Cuban WBA welterweight champion, just 11 days before the pay-per-view show at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
