MOSCOW -- At least eight Russian athletes are set to miss next months Games in Rio de Janeiro under new IOC rules prohibiting former dopers from competing, Russias top Olympic official said. Jason Garrison Golden Knights Jersey .Alexander Zhukov had said earlier that only eight athletes would be affected, but acknowledged after a meeting of his Russian Olympic Committee that the number would rise.I think that in the near future we will have full information, Zhukov said. I had said eight, but its already clear that its more.While Zhukov did not name the athletes, competitors in swimming, cycling and weightlifting are likely to be affected.Zhukov spoke a day after the International Olympic Committee executive board decided against imposing a complete ban on Russian athletes from the Rio Games over allegations of state-sponsored doping. The IOC asked individual global sports federations to decide on entry of Russian athletes, and announced new eligibility criteria.The rules prohibit Russia from sending any athletes to the Rio Games who have previously served doping bans. Sports federations can also reject Russian entries if they have not undergone enough international drug testing. Results of Russian tests will not be accepted following allegations of routine cover-ups at Moscows anti-doping laboratory.It remains unclear whether there could be legal challenges to the IOC criteria. A similar IOC measure, known as the Osaka Rule, which would have prohibited any athletes who had received doping bans from competing in the subsequent Olympics, was declared invalid by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.Zhukov said the IOCs latest criteria violated the principle of equality because they only applied to Russia, although he has previously ruled out legal action.However, Andrei Mitkov, the agent of previously-banned world champion swimmer Yulia Efimova, told Russias Sportbox website that she would apply to CAS if she was not allowed to compete.Russias track and field athletes remain barred from the Games by the IAAF, a decision upheld last week by CAS and accepted by the IOC.Now, with the Aug. 5 opening ceremony approaching, it is up to the remaining 27 international sports federations to vet Russian athletes on an individual basis.The archery federation said Monday it had approved the entry of three Russian archers after determining they have no links to doping.World Archery said it was satisfied that the three female Russian archers nominated for the Games had been tested extensively and have never been sanctioned for doping. They were listed as Tuiana Dashidorzhieva, Ksenia Perova and Inna Stepanova.Archery was not implicated in the World Anti-Doping Agency report released last week by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren, which accused Russia of covering up doping in 20 Summer Olympic sports.Russian archers have been targeted for additional testing, both in and out of competition, since the report was released, the federation said.No Russian archery athlete has received an adverse analytical finding, it said, adding that it would submit its findings to the IOC.The International Tennis Federation said Sunday it expects Russias eight-player Olympic tennis team to be eligible for the Games. The ITF said the players have been subject to a rigorous anti-doping testing program outside Russia.The International Equestrian federation said there was no indication of doping within Russias five-rider team.Russian cyclist Ilnur Zakarin, who won a stage during the Tour de France which ended Sunday, could be ruled out because he served a two-year ban after testing positive for a steroid in 2009.The International Judo Federation, whose honorary president is Russias President Vladimir Putin, said it has already tested 84 percent of the 389 athletes from 136 countries who are qualified to compete in Rio. It made no mention of the 11 Russian judo athletes entered.The international gymnastics federation, FIG, said it has taken note of the IOC ruling and shall fully adhere to it. It said it would establish a pool of Russian eligible athletes. Gymnastics was not mentioned in the McLaren report.Boxings governing body, AIBA, said it was examining Russias entrants. Russia has qualified 11 boxers for Rio, including reigning world champions Vitaly Dunaytsev and Evgeny Tishchenko.We are reviewing and analyzing, on a case by case basis, the anti-doping record of the 11 Russian boxers currently qualified for Rio 2016, AIBA said. This information and the decision of AIBA in respect of the athletes eligibility will be submitted to the IOC for confirmation in due course. Erik Haula Golden Knights Jersey .

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Seattle Mariners desperately wanted to go into the All-Star break with a winning record.Robinson Cano and Adam Lind homered in a five-run seventh inning and the Mariners held off the Kansas City Royals 8-5 on Sunday.Canos two-run shot to deep right field for his 21st home run of the season extended the Mariners lead to 5-0. Lind hit a three-run shot, his 13th, a few batters later.A lot of good at-bats, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. Guys were grinding. Definitely want to go to the break above .500. It was an important game for us today.The Mariners (45-44) head into the break above .500 for the second time since 2010, after going 51-44 in 2014.The Royals scored five runs over the final three innings, pulling within three on Alex Gordons homer leading off the ninth.Mike Montgomery (3-3) pitched 6 1/3 strong innings, giving up one run and five hits, in his first start of the season.Dillion Gee (3-3) struggled early and picked up the loss for the Royals, giving up three runs and five hits in 3 2/3 innings.One of the key moments in Gees rough outing occurred in the first inning where an errant throw on a double play opportunity eventually led to Seattles first score.I kinda got caught in between when I came up to take a look at second, Gee said. It was right when the umpire was kinda like, making his way into position and I tried to slow up a little bit and it sailed on me. Just a costly mistakeBrett Eibner had three hits, including his third homer of the season in the seventh and an RBI single in the Royals three-run eighth.Despite the loss, the Royals went into the All-Star break with a winning record for the third straight season at 45-42.Kyle Seager had a two-run single in the first, and Ketel Marte added a run-scoring single in the fourth to give the Mariners a 3-0 lead.

You know, Im trying to come back and give a hundred percent every day and see what happens after.Kendrys Morales bases-loaded walk pulled the Royals to 8-2 in the eighth, and Cheslor Cuthbert capped the three-run inning with a sacrifice fly.MASHING MARINERSSeattles two homers pushed it into second by themselves with a team total of 132 home runs on the season. ... Cano will compete in the 2016 Home Run Derby on Monday at Petco Park. He is the first Mariner to compete in the contest since Bret Boone in 2003. This is Canos first Derby since 2013 when he was with the New York Yankees.ROYALS AT THE ESPYSAfter the All-Star Game on Tuesday, Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez will attend the 2016 ESPYs on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.
