A further 84 Russian athletes have had appeals dismissed against their ban from the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, which are set to get underway here tomorrow.
Lawsuits had been filed with the state court in German city Bonn, where the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is based, but were rejected.
It comes just a day after the same court turned down an attempt from 10 Russian athletes to secure an injunction allowing them to compete at Rio 2016.
Pavel Rozhkov, the first vice-president of the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC), told reporters that all 10 athletes have appealed the ruling at a court in Cologne.
A decision on that is expected tomorrow.
The IPC introduced a blanket ban for the entire Russian Paralympic team in Rio de Janeiro in the wake of Richard McLaren’s damning report, which alleged the presence of a state-sponsored doping scheme at a number of major events, including the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
A total of 35 "disappearing positives" were found in Paralympic sport, according to the report, between 2012 and 2015.
Last week, the IPC rejected more than 175 appeals from Russians hoping to compete as neutral participants on the grounds that there is no way to participate other than under a National Paralympic Committee banner.
A total of 34 athletes affected have submitted individual appeals to the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), who had previously supported the IPC stance.
But a request to speed-up the consideration of these appeals before Rio 2016 was rejected, meaning that none of the cases will be heard until after the Closing Ceremony.
Any chance of the IPC offering the Russian Paralympic Committee financial compensation for missing the Games has also been rejected as "irrelevant".
This is something which has not been formally announced by the IPC but has, according to senior Russian figures, been mooted.
The IPC, meanwhile, has said it is working to "define criteria" for Russia’s reinstatement to the global organisation.
RPC President Vladimir Lukin said last week that they had written to the IPC in order to find out how they get their membership reinstated, which would allow them to return to international competitions.
He told TASS yesterday that Russian Paralympians who have been barred from Rio 2016 will continue to defend their rights at European courts.
"The athletes are asking only one thing - to do away with the utter piece of injustice and clear absolutely innocent people for participation in the Paralympic Games as they are through all qualification tournaments and have been found guilty of no violations," Lukin said.
