Rio 2016: Banned Russian athletes get their own games in Moscow

After missing out due to a blanket ban imposed by the IAAF on all of Russia's track and field athletes for doping offenses, the country organized The Stars 2016 event.

Among the 53 banned athletes taking part on Thursday were Sergey Shubenkov, last year's world 110 meters hurdles champion, and London 2012 high jump gold medalist Ivan Ukhov. Shubenkov insists he has never taken drugs, though Ukhov infamously was warned by the IAAF after trying to compete while drunk at a 2008 meeting in Lausanne.

Around 150 competitors took part at the Znamensky Brothers stadium, a 7,500-capacity arena usually reserved for the Moscow track and field championships.
