Moscow:

Pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva said Friday she would challenge in court the IAAF decision to uphold Russia's suspension that would sideline Russian athletes from the Olympic Games in Rio.

"This is a human rights violation. I will not remain silent, I will take measures," she told TASS news agency. "I will appeal to the human rights court," she said, without specifying in which court she planned to challenge the ruling.
