“The IOC noted that it was not the first time that such incidents of challenges of entry of international sports delegations have happened in India; the latest of which was the women’s boxing team from Kosovo not being able to attend the AIBA Women’s World Championships in November 2018,” IOC sports director Kit McConnell wrote in a letter to ISSF president Vladimir Lissin. Consequently, India have been found guilty of violating the Olympic Charter. McConnell, in his letter, said the situation goes against: “the Fundamental Principles of the Olympic Charter, in particular the principles of non-discrimination and the IOC/Olympic Movement’s position, reiterated on many occasions over the past few years, i.e. that equal treatment must be guaranteed for all participating athletes and sporting delegations at international sports events, without any form of discrimination or political interference from the host country.” As a consequence, the IOC was considering revoking all quotas on offer at the Delhi World Cup. But after intervention by India’s IOC member Nita Ambani, Olympic Council of Asia honourary life vice-president Randhir Singh, Indian Olympic Association president Narinder Batra and sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, the IOC decided to scrap quotas in only that event where the Pakistanis were competing (25m rapid fire pistol). While India survived an embarrassment at the World Cup, whether the country is allowed to host other events remains to be seen.
