On August 23 CAS upheld the ban on the Russian team issued by the IPC after Moscow filed an appeal against the decision. Prior to the CAS ruling several petitions were launched on the website change.org calling on the IPC chief to allow the Russian team to compete. The petition attracted over 300,000 signatures. The Paralympics in Brazil are set to start on September 8 and will last for eleven days ending on September 18.
