Russia’s Olympic membership reinstated

Officially, Russia’s Olympic membership has now been fully reinstated. Russia was banned from Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics because of the state- sponsored doping leading up to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. A team of 168 athletes who were clean from doping competed under the Olympic flag and anthem as Olympic Athletes from Russia. The International Olympic Committee stated that the final notification of all remaining test results from the Olympic athletes from Russia delegation has been received. Moreover, the Doping- Free Sport Unit confirmed all remaining test results from russian athletes are negative.
