Ironman bans Russian athletes from championship

(Ironman official website, AP Newsroom)

The Ironman company banned all Russian athletes from competing in the Ironman World Championships, which will be in St. George. This decision came after the International Olympic Committee encouraged Ironman to take action against Russian competitors.

The Russian and Belarus flag will not be recognized by the company, and cannot represent any athletes. The Ironman company will be offering assistance to Ukrainian athletes competing in the world competition.
