Russian and Belarusian Paralympic Athletes Granted Permission to Compete in Paris 2024 under Neutral Flag

In a recent decision by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), Russian and Belarusian athletes have been given the opportunity to participate in the Paris Paralympics in 2024, albeit under a neutral flag.

The IPC’s majority vote allows these athletes to compete “in an individual and neutral capacity,” without national flags, colors, or emblems.

This move comes in the wake of Russia’s suspension from Paralympic competition due to its invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, with Belarus, Russia’s ally, also facing a suspension.
