RIO DE JANEIRO -- IOC president Thomas Bach issued another defense of his handling of the Russian doping scandal Monday, saying the decision not to exclude the entire Russian team from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics was based on human rights and justice. Carolina Hurricanes Hoodie .Bach used his speech at the opening ceremony of the IOCs general assembly to address the continuing criticism of the Olympic bodys response to evidence of state-sponsored doping in Russia, declaring that individual athletes cannot be punished for the wrongdoing of their government.This decision is about justice, Bach said. Justice has to be independent from politics. Whoever responds to a violation of the law with another violation of the law is destroying justice.Rejecting calls from anti-doping bodies for a total ban on Russia, the IOC instead gave international sports federations the authority to rule on the entry of individual Russian athletes. The IOC also ruled that any Russian athletes with prior doping sanctions could not compete in the Rio Games, which open Friday.While more than 100 Russians -- including the track and field team -- have been banned from the games, more than 250 have so far been cleared to compete by the federations.We had to take the necessary decisions, Bach said. Because of the seriousness of the allegations, we could not uphold the presumption of innocence for Russian athletes. On the other hand, we cannot deprive an athlete of the human right to be given the opportunity to prove his or her innocence.You cannot punish a human being for the failures of his or her government if he or she is not implicated. These principles are now being implemented.The IOCs rejection of a full ban has been harshly criticized by many anti-doping bodies, athletes groups and Western media.Calls for a blanket ban grew after Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren, who was commissioned to investigate by the World Anti-Doping Agency, issued a report accusing Russias sport ministry of orchestrating a vast doping scheme involving athletes in more than two dozen winter and summer sports.If proven true, such a contemptuous system of doping is an unprecedented attack on the integrity of sport and on the Olympic Games, Bach said. With the Olympic Games just a few days away, we had to take action even though the McLaren report is not yet finished and the Russian side has not been heard yet.We took immediate measures to shed full light on the allegations. and more actions and sanctions will follow if necessary.Bach spoke at a ceremony ahead of the IOCs 129th session, a three-day assembly starting Tuesday.He expressed support for South Americas first Olympics, whose build-up has been overshadowed by Brazils political and economic crises and concerns over Zika, water pollution, crime and budget cuts.It has been a long and testing journey to get to this point, Bach said. It is no exaggeration to say that the Brazilians have been living through extraordinary times. The political and economic crisis in the country is unprecedented. It goes without saying that this situation has made the final preparations for the Olympic Games challenging.In a time when the country is divided politically, economically and socially, the transformation of Rio de Janeiro is truly historic. Rio de Janeiro would not be where it is today without the Olympic Games as a catalyst. Andrej Nestrasil Hurricanes Jersey .

Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Lightly raced Order Again has avenged an unlucky last-start defeat to confirm his rating as a possible winter carnival contender with a decisive win at the Sunshine Coast.Sent out the $1.50 favourite in Wednesdays 1400m-maiden, Order Again ran down the leader The Amateur ($3) to win by 2-3/4 lengths with 8 lengths to the third horse See Bling ($21).Trainer Brian Smith said he would enter Order Again for an open three-year-old race over 1600m at Eagle Farm on Saturday week.I think he might make a lower grade winter carnival three-year-old. I dont want to be talking about the Derby but I do think he is a 2400 metre horse in the making, Smith said.They did put a good margin on the third horse. It was only his third start.Jockey Larry Cassidy has a good opinion of Order Again who he said had to take the field up to the tearaway leader in The Amateur.He should have won his previous start when he had no luck.

It is out of a half-sister to Shoot Out so I might have to buy it, Gollan said.The Huddys were denied a double when their filly Of The Day ($1.90) failed by a short neck to catch the Toby Edmonds-trained Linlithgow ($3.50) in another maiden (1000m).She had a nasty injury early on when she put a leg through a fence.
