The IOC suspended the national team of Russia from participation in the Olympics

The Russian team was prohibited from participating in the Olympics in Pyeongchang under its flag. However, the Russian athletes who were not mentioned in the scandalous report of Richard McLaren, will perform at the Olympics in South Korea under a neutral flag.

The Russian team will not be able to compete at the Olympic games in 2018 in Pyeongchang under its flag. This decision was taken by voting members of the Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee, which is meeting in Lausanne. This is stated in the message on the IOC’s website.

The basis for the decision are the findings of the commissions of the organization under the leadership of Samuel Schmidt and Denis Oswald, who conducted an investigation in relation to the testimony of the former head of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory of Gregory Rodchenkov and data from the report of the independent Commission of the world anti-doping Agency, headed by Richard McLaren.

Thus, the Russian athletes will be able to play the Games in Pyeongchang only under a neutral flag. The Olympics will not sound the anthem of Russia. Crucial for our Olympians, the IOC decision is final. To appeal to Russia.
