Russians not invited to Olympics despite doping ban repeal

Pound, the ex-president of the World Anti-Doping Agency, also criticised the "perverse" judgments of the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which last week reversed life Olympic bans on 28 Russian athletes and staff.

First Vice President of the Russian Olympic Committee Stanislav Pozdniakov has spoken highly of efforts made by the Organising Committee of the PyeongChang 2018 Games, which has been able to create a comfortable environment for Russian athletes.

"I join everyone by saying how appalling this is and how appalled as a parent you can be when you read these things", IOC spokesman Mark Adams said in response to a USA TODAY Sports question at his opening press briefing in advance of the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

How many independent Russian athletes will compete at Pyeongchang is still unclear as the CAS continues to hear and deliberate the appeals of 47 individuals demanding to be reinstated from doping bans stemming from the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Woody Harrelson's Beckett is giving off some Galen Erso in Rogue One vibes (at least in the costume department). OK. "What a piece of junk" was NOT an exaggeration.

The IOC invitation review committee rejected on Monday the requests of 13 Russian athletes and two coaches to compete in South Korea following the CAS ruling.

The 13 active athletes and two retired athletes working in support roles were among 28 athletes whose bans were overturned by CAS on Thursday.

The IOC, however, has refused to invite them, noting there was evidence about the athletes that had not been available to the IOC commission that had investigated them. Their appeals against Olympic bans were fully satisfied, while the request to reexamine the cases of another 11 were only "partially upheld".

The CAS is not expected to produce that reasoned decision until the end of the month.

Further in its rebuttal to the idea of including the 15 athletes submitted by the Russian Olympic Committee, IOC adds that an establishment by its panel puts the athletes on the spot for engaging in doping.

Bach declined to speculate on the outcome of the CAS hearings, but expects CAS president John Coates and his WADA equivalent Craig Reedie to discuss the way forwards.

"We are extremely disappointed with this CAS decision", Bach said.

"We need the reasoned decision to see whether we have any prospect of success", Bach said. The IOC reserved the right to the final word in regard to Russian athletes, who will go to PyeongChang under the neutral status.

"We can not lose sight of the extent nor the scale of the efforts that Russian authorities and athletes engaged in to cheat the anti-doping system", the WADA Athlete Committee added.
