  • Moscow says Russian Olympic ban created to sour pre-election mood

There's a toast Russians offer when something looks too good to be true.

"If you're working with a nation who's willing to go to those ends to have a successful Olympics, that's really sad for me", added the 22-year-old Shiffrin, who is the Olympic slalom champion and victor of the last three slalom World Championships.

Putin said his government will allow Russians to compete as neutral athletes at the upcoming games in South Korea. "We will not block our Olympians from taking part, if any of them wish to take part as individuals".

Like the rest of his countrymen, he knows a sweet deal when he sees one. The scheme swept up more than 1,000 athletes and stretched from lowly lab technicians in Sochi swapping out tainted urine samples for clean ones on up to the highest reaches of the national sports ministries. If you catch an athlete red-handed, then punish this athlete. "No anthem, either. Otherwise, make yourself right at home".

The long-awaited International Olympic Committee decision punishing Russia for a state-sponsored doping campaign during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, came a little more than two months before the quadrennial skiing, skating and sledding contests unfold at venues in the mountains and along the coast of South Korea.

It is unclear how many Russians could compete in South Korea.

Another Olympics expert from the University of France-Comte, Eric Monnin, said the International Olympic Committee was "playing for its life and legitimacy" during the sordid state-sponsored doping affair, in which the global body also banned Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko from the Olympics for life. Ditto for any other competitors with previous doping violations.

The ban also entails that Russian officials can not attend the event and the flag will not be displayed during the opening ceremony.

And the discussion around it - and the trouble when the sides met just over a week ago - prompted an apology from Sussex Police. The game will kick-off at 7.45pm and further details - including ticket prices - will be announced in due course.

"So there are still more questions than answers and they all need to clarified". They won't get to wear their official uniforms, either.

"Russia has been punished, including the government in the guise of Mutko, but there exists a way out for those athletes who have nothing to do with this". Since they will not be competing under ROC auspices, their uniforms can not bear the Russian flag, and the Olympic anthem, rather than the Russian one, will be played for them if they place in the top three. In any case, they won't be hard to recognize. "I woke up today and some guys in Russian Federation said we should back out".

Bach said he hoped those attending would "represent a new generation of clean Russian athletes in the Games and build a bridge into a clean future of Russian sport".

Besides, the International Olympic Committee decision says the ban may be lifted before the Games' closing ceremony - and if it is, the Russian athletes can march under the national flag.

Russian athletes, by contrast, are not banned.

The Russians will nearly surely not leave Pyeongchang empty-handed.

The panel will be led by Valerie Fourneyron, a former sports minister of France who chairs a new global body overseeing doping controls. At the same time, the IOC intends to respect the rights of clean athletes, allowing them to participate in the upcoming games as "Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation".
