Russia Returns Tyumen & Ostrov Events to IBU


The IBU held an Emergency Executive Board Meeting in Munich, yesterday 22 Dec, in response to the McLaren Report and the state-sponsored doping of Russian athletes.


It was announced in the IBU Press Release  that the Russian Biathlon Union had, that day, informed the IBU that the Youth and Junior World Championships 2017 that was originally assigned to Ostrov and the BMW IBU World Cup 8 in 2017 that was assigned to Tyumen are given back to the IBU. New venues for the two events will be announced shortly by the IBU. A summary of other decisions taken by the IBU in relation to the McLaren Report are also contained in the IBU Press Release.
