No details of the suspension were immediately available, but the Court of Arbitration for Sport said it had received an appeal from the long jumper against an eligibility issue of the international athletics federation (IAAF).
The source, close to the proceedings, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the long jumper had been suspended as new evidence had emerged in relation to a World Anti-Doping Agency report — the McLaren report — and Klishina.
The report, drafted by Canadian Richard McLaren, described what the World Anti-Doping Agency said was systematic doping among Russian athletes, supported by the Russian state over several years, including at the 2014 Sochi winter Olympics.
Klishina, one of 136 appeals to the IAAF but the only one given the green light to compete in Rio, was originally allowed to take part in the Games because she was based in the United States and had regular testing outside Russia.
