Russian Federation banned from 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea

Russian Federation banned from 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea

They would have to pass drug tests to prove they were clean and also did not benefit from the Sochi scheme. They will compete with a uniform bearing this name and under the Olympic Flag.

That is, if Russian President Vladimir Putin allows them to go to the February 9-25 games. However no announcement has yet been made by the country's president, Vladimir Putin, or the Russian Olympic Committee.

Bach said: "This should serve as a catalyst for a more effective anti-doping system led by Wada".

Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said she was with the country's athletes in spirit. The Olympic anthem will be played in place of the Russian anthem at medal ceremonies.

Mutko was the sports minister in 2014 and is the head of the organizing committee of soccer's next World Cup.

Barely two weeks before the Rio Games, Canadian law professor Richard McLaren releases a report for WADA which outlines rampant Russian state-run doping at the Sochi Olympics and other major sports events.

Schmid's report, delivered to the 14-strong executive board on Monday, was enough to persuade International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach to take what he had previously considered to be a "nuclear option" with "too much collateral damage".

In a statement , Apple said that it remains confident the court will overturn the commission's decision once it has reviewed the evidence.

"An Olympic boycott has never achieved anything", Bach said at a news conference Tuesday.

"The IOC, at its absolute discretion, will ultimately determine the athletes to be invited from the list", said the IOC's statement, ruling out all those to have previously committed a doping violation.

The sanctions could be challenged at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The invitation list will be determined, at its absolute discretion, by a panel chaired by Valerie Fourneyron, Chair of the ITA.

According to reports, Russian officials have refused to accept the findings of the McLaren Report from the World Anti-Doping Agency. Separately, the Oswald commission, set up by the International Olympic Committee to examine Russian doping in Sochi in 2014, began to ban Russian competitors from those Games retrospectively. We salute whistleblower Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, who risked so much to tell this story, and support all those who are willing to speak truth to power.

Russian officials reacted to the decision by attacking it as unfair. The delegation was led by Zhukov, who was later suspended. IOC President Thomas Bach led a meeting Tuesday of the IOC Executive Board in Lausanne that took action against Russian Federation over a doping scandal that began more than two years ago with revelations of a corrupted anti-doping system.

The report by IOC-appointed investigator Samuel Schmid, the former president of Switzerland who was asked to verify an "institutional conspiracy", included a 50-page sworn affidavit from Rodchenkov, who was also a key witness for McLaren and an International Olympic Committee disciplinary commission. "Working with the IOC Athletes' Commission, we will now look for opportunities to make up for the moments they have missed on the finish line or on the podium". One Russian was cleared. So far the figure stands at 25 athletes, with 11 medals stripped.
