Beijing News (Reporter Xu Bangyin) On October 26th, local time in Switzerland, the International Court of Arbitration for Sports ruled that American para athlete Blake Ripa could not wear the current mechanical aids (prosthetics) to participate in the Olympic Games and the World Athletics Federation. For all competitions, the official website of the World Athletics Federation subsequently issued a document in support of the decision of the International Court of Arbitration for Sports.
Blake Ripa is a 400-meter para athlete who won the podium at the Paralympic Games. He won the 5th place in the men's 400 meters in the 2019 U.S. Championships, and his performance also reached the Tokyo Olympics.
In February of this year, Blake Ripa applied to the World Athletics Federation to wear the prosthesis currently used in the competition and was eligible to participate in the Tokyo Olympics, but was rejected by the IAAF. Blake Ripa quickly appealed to the International Court of Arbitration for Sports, requesting the rejection of the IAAF's decision. He believed that he could wear the existing prosthesis and should qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.
今年2月，布雷克·里帕（Blake Ripa）向世界田径联合会提出申请，要求佩戴目前在比赛中使用的假肢，并有资格参加东京奥运会，但遭到国际田联的拒绝。布雷克·里帕（Blake Ripa）迅速向国际体育仲裁法院提出上诉，要求拒绝国际田联的决定。他相信自己可以穿上现有的假肢，并有资格参加东京奥运会。
The World Athletics Federation emphasized that they allow disabled athletes to wear artificial limbs and other auxiliary methods to participate in various competitions, provided that these auxiliary methods can not give users an artificial competitive advantage. The World Athletics Federation invited many experts to demonstrate and the results showed that Blake Ripa’s legs were about 15 cm taller than ordinary people after wearing prostheses. The increase in height gave him a competitive advantage in the 400-meter race for about a few seconds.
Blake Ripa亚博游戏软件’s team of lawyers believes that the IAAF’s argument only takes into account the normal human body proportions, and does not take into account the special circumstances of African-American athletes.
The International Court of Arbitration for Sports finally did not accept the opinion of Blake Ripa and found that the IAAF’s decision was fully compliant. This also means that Blake Ripa’s previous results could not qualify for the Tokyo Olympics and he could not wear it. Existing prostheses participate in the Olympics and other track and field events.
国际体育仲裁法院最终不接受布莱克·里帕（Blake Ripa）的意见，并认定国际田联的决定完全合规。这也意味着布莱克·里帕（Blake Ripa）以前的成绩无法参加东京奥运会，他也无法佩戴。现有的假肢参亚博游戏软件加了奥运会和其他田径比赛。
