Russian Olympic Committee banned from 2018 Winter Games, athletes allowed to compete as neutrals

Russian Olympic Committee banned from 2018 Winter Games, athletes allowed to compete as neutrals | 05 Dec 2017 | The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has suspended the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) from 2018 Olympics, ruling that "clean" Russian athletes can only compete under a neutral flag in South Korea in February. The decision came after 14-person panel was presented with the results of two separate investigations of alleged Russian doping - one concerning individual athletes, the other institutional violations. The executive board ruled that no officials from Russia's sport ministry will be allowed accreditation for the Winter Games in PyeongChang.
