Klishina was originally the sole Russian track athlete in Rio, but then the IAAF banned her as well after new information emerged. However, Klishina was successful in her appeal to CAS so will compete.
Unlike the IOC, the IPC issued a blanket ban on Russian from the Paralympics, but Russia has launched an appeal to CAS.

They include former World heptathlon champ Tatyana Chernova and five race walkers who tested positive for EPO.
The IAAF misinterpreted the recent statute of limitations rule change as it is 10-years moving forward, but still only 8-years for previous tests. This means that potentially 28 dopers caught in 2005 re-tests will now go free.
"The IAAF is grateful to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) for the decisions it published today..."
The IAAF appealed their original suspensions as they conveniently let the Russians keep their medals from major championships.
CAS will control all anti-doping decisions including handing out sanctions. This is a positive step away from having biased national federations handling all doping cases/bans.
Papa Massata Diack, Valentin Balakhnichev and Alexei Melnikov are appealing their bans for blackmailing athletes and covering up positive doping tests.
These are the bans (which included steepler Yulia Zaripova) which the IAAF appealed because RUSADA made them too selective by allowing athletes to keep major medals.
In 2013 she was provisionally banned, but cleared by CAS who said proper testing procedures weren't carried out by the JADCO.
The IAAF was appealing to make her 2-year ban a 4-year ban, but reports are saying that the IAAF and Russian athletics federation reached an out-of-court settlement.
Meanwhile, she's asked CAS to lift the ban completely so she can “resume training and ... participate in IAAF competitions during the CAS proceedings”.
