Russian hockey players' singing of anthem won't derail country's return: IOC

Russian hockey players' singing of anthem won't derail country's return: IOC

Sergeeva appeared in a YouTube video posted by Russian company Zasport before the 2018 Winter Olympics wearing an "I DON'T DO DOPING" shirt.

WADA declared RUSADA non-compliant with its code in November 2015 after an worldwide agency's commission revealed the alleged systematic doping violations in Russian athletics.

However, the IOC commission did recommend lifting the disqualification of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) as soon as possible, if the remainder of the test samples of Russian athletes come out clean.

The two Russians who tested positive in Pyeongchang so far are curler Alexander Krushelnitsky, who was stripped of his bronze medal, and the bobsled pilot Nadezhda Sergeeva.

Before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, IOC released a statement saying that they would lift the ban from Russia if they don't get any doping Russian athletes during the Winter Games.

"It has taken two positive tests on Russian athletes to force the IOC's hand when its clear intention had been to readmit the ROC before the closing of the Pyeongchang Games", iNADO said in a statement. "Based on the results available, the Implementation Group noted that these ADRVs were individual and isolated cases that did not show a pattern of systematic and organized doping activity", Hoevertsz told the International Olympic Committee session. The next day krushelnitsky passed another test, which showed a decrease in concentration 5721 ng/ml. It also means Russian officials can take part at International Olympic Committee meetings. Sergeeva Anastasia Kacharava took 12th place in the competition of double crews in bobsleigh. Now they are waiting for the end of the check of skiers' and hockey players' tests, if there are no problems, then the decision to reinstate the membership of the Russian Olympic Committee will be made automatically.

Russian Federation was banned from the Olympics because of a massive doping scandal at the 2014 Sochi Games. Participation of OAR athletes at the closing ceremony was not being considered until the last minute.

Widespread doping by Russian athletes at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games was exposed by an independent report for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). "WADA notes that subject to the continued compliance with the IOC Executive Board decision of December 5 2017, the suspension of the ROC is considered to be lifted once the Doping Free Sport Unit of the Global Association of International Sports Federations has confirmed that there are no additional Anti-Doping Rule Violations by members of the Olympic Athletes from Russia delegation". The IOC left open the possibility of reinstatement ahead of the closing ceremony if the Russians met a series of criteria, and Russian athletes were allowed to participate under the Olympic flag.

They had all been required to prove they were clean before the Games.
