The international Olympic Committee February 25, needs to make a decision on whether to pass the Russian delegation at the closing ceremony of the winter Olympics in Pyeongchang under the flag of Russia. About it reports “Radio Freedom” with reference to the Executive Committee of the IOC.
It is noted that the Executive Committee of the IOC gathered for a meeting on this issue on February 24 and will continue the discussion tomorrow.
“IOC representative mark Adams did not rule out that the Executive Committee may make a final decision at the meeting, which will end in 9 hours before the closing ceremony of the Olympic games”, â€“ stated in the message.
Earlier it was reported that the IOC can recover the powers of the Russian Olympic Committee and Russian athletes will be able to go to the closing of the Olympics under the national flag, even after the Russian curler Alexandra Krushelnytskoho was caught doping and stripped because of this “bronze”. However, today, February 24, it was reported that court of arbitration for sport disqualified Russian bobsleistku Hope on Wednesday in a doping test which was found illegal substance â€” Trimetazidine.
We will remind, by the decision of the IOC because of a doping scandal athletes from Russia perform at the Olympics 2018 under the neutral flag.
