Winter Olympics Ban Of 45 Russian Athletes Upheld By Court Ruling

Sanctions Prevent Delivery Of Special Note 8 For Two Teams

Pyongyang on Wednesday told Seoul it planned to send Choe, along with Kim Yo Jong and Ri Son Gwon, as part of a high-level North Korean delegation to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

Of the athletes and coaches whose appeals were thrown out Friday, 15 had previously had their lifetime bans for doping lifted by the Switzerland-based court.

The IOC welcomed the decision in a statement, saying it "supports the fight against doping and brings clarity for all athletes".

Google is marking the kick-off of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics with a new Doodle featuring some seriously cute animals. "The Panel also concluded that there was no evidence the IRP or the OAR IG improperly exercised their discretion".

Though CAS ruled last week that there was insufficient evidence that the 28 athletes involved had benefited from of state-sponsored cheating, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow them to compete in PyeongChang on the grounds that the CAS ruling "had not lifted the suspicion of doping".

Some of those athletes have already been in action.

Here are a few of my favourite photos from the days leading into the games kicking off with the opening ceremony tonight.

The Russian situation has proved highly contentious in the build-up to Pyeongchang after their team was banned but a certain number of "clean" Russian athletes were allowed to take part as neutrals.

Other notable entries include the Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation team, who will enter as the 55th delegation.

Among the athletes who were hoping to gatecrash the Olympics by forcing an invite through CAS were Victor Ahn and and Elena Nikitina.

"There was a confusion as the IOC and organizers had to review legal issues on giving the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone to athletes from countries under global sanction", an official from the organizing committee said, apologizing to Samsung for being accused despite its good intentions. "They have not been five-star coddled athletes as football and basketball players often can be, and it has resonated with me why the Olympics still matter: real stories of real, relatable people that will become icons in our country or in other countries throughout the Games".
