Feras Moula, Syria Olympic Committee's secretary general, said that questioning the athletes from Syria who want to compete in this summer's Olympics is "flawed".
He said: "Questioning the legitimacy of athletes that are due to take part in the Olympic games is flawed. Like any athletes their main aim and goal is to compete, this is what they hope for. They want to be able to take part in winning games and securing medals."
