MOSCOW -- Russias top Olympic official expects a final decision by Sunday on whether the entire Russian team will be banned from next months games in Rio de Janeiro over allegations of state-sponsored doping.The International Olympic Committee said its executive board will meet via teleconference on Sunday to consider the issue, but added that a final decision was expected within the next seven days.The IOC is examining the legal options of a blanket ban following a report by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren that accused Russias sports ministry of overseeing doping of the countrys Olympic athletes.The issue will be finally resolved by the end of this week, probably on Sunday, Russian Olympic Committee president Alexander Zhukov said Wednesday at a meeting of the ROC.Zhukov said his committee did not discuss the McLaren report at its meeting, although he also did not rule out legal action if Russia is hit with a total ban from the games.The Court of Arbitration for Sport will issue its verdict Thursday on Russias appeal to overturn the IAAF ban on its track and field athletes for the games. The IOC will take that ruling into account before making its own decision.Zhukov said he was hopeful of winning the appeal, adding that Russias plans for the Olympics assumed the track and field team would be allowed to compete. Russia plans to send a total of 387 athletes, including 68 in track and field, he said.Of course we hope for a CAS ruling in our favor, Zhukov told state TV. It would be, Id say, a serious precedent for the other federations decisions.Regardless of how the various doping-related cases turn out, Zhukov said a Russian Olympic boycott was out of the question.These boycotts just lead to a breakup of the Olympic movement, he said. I think that Russia will never take part in any boycott.The Soviet Union boycotted the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, retaliating for the U.S.-led boycott of the 1980 Games in Moscow that followed the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.Earlier Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putins spokesman said a meeting between Putin and Russias Olympic athletes, previously scheduled for Thursday, would no longer take place.The IOC executive board held a meeting by teleconference on Tuesday to consider its steps in the wake of the McLaren report, which found that 28 summer and winter Olympic sports were affected by state-operated cheating in Russia.WADA and other anti-doping officials urged the IOC to consider the unprecedented step of excluding the entire Russian team from the Rio Games.The IOC said it will explore the legal options with regard to a collective ban of all Russian athletes for the Olympic Games 2016 versus the right to individual justice.The IOC also started disciplinary action against Russian sports ministry officials and others implicated in McLarens report, and said they would be denied accreditation for the Rio Games. The list includes Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko.The IOC can also let individual international federations decide to ban Russians in their own sports.The international rowing federation said Wednesday it was investigating whether Russian rowers places at the Rio Olympics could be reallocated to athletes from other countries if there would be a blanket ban on the Russian team or any other ban.Russia has five rowing crews entered for the Olympics after a sixth crew was disqualified earlier this month for a doping violation in qualifying.World Rowing also said it is undertaking a complete review of testing of Russian rowers since 2011 and has asked WADA for any evidence related to doping by Russian rowers. The McLaren report alleged 11 failed drug tests in rowing had been covered up by Russian officials.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Wilson in London contributed. Discount Nike Shox .

Gold Coast could be in private hands by the end of the year following Jarryd Haynes stunning move to the NRL club.The NRL, who own the Titans after stepping in to alleviate their financial hardship last year, had initially anticipated it could be at least another year before the club moved into private hands.However, that is expected to change following Haynes multi-million dollar two year deal with the Gold Coast.After their unexpected success this year the signing of Hayne is expected to move the Titans from a position as an NRL battler to a significantly more influential, important and high profile club.Titans board members Rebecca Frizell and Darryl Kelly, both respected Gold Coast business people have been mentioned as individuals who might be interested in becoming private investors in the club moving forward.The NRL has kept the Titans at arms length despite their ownership, leaving Titans powerbrokers to conduct the day-to-day dealings at the club, including the signing of Hayne.The NRL had to sign off on the deal, but did so as it would with any other club.But the NRL is acutely aware of the boost that Haynes signing will give to the Titans, aas are Titans officials themselves.dddddddddddd.Titans boss Graham Annesley anticipated Haynes move to the Titans would exponentially increase the value of and interest in the club. The Titans are expected a sold out Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday against the Warriors when Hayne plays his first game for the club.This is an enormous boost for the club commercially, Annesley said.Clearly the club is generating a lot of additional interest just by virtue of the way the teams been playing so far this year.Its (Hayne) hopefully going to generate more membership interest in the club, more corporate support for the club.Jarryd is a household name right throughout the country regardless of which sport you follow and, in fact, internationally.To have him on board as a key member of our playing roster and the additional interest thatll generate, people through the gate - Jarryd is a proven turnstile clicker - people come to the games to watch Jarryd play.Hes an impact player and makes a major difference to the teams that he plays for.
