Fashion designer supports Russia amid IOC investigation

Posted: Updated:

The Russian fashion designer, who created the uniforms the nation's competitors might wear at the 2018 Winter Olympics, said she will support the Russian team no matter the decision the International Olympic Committee makes as to whether the athletes can compete in Pyeongchang. 

The I.O.C. launched an investigation after Russian whistle blower, Grigory Rodchenkov, claimed the country's anti-doping agency was tampering with athlete's drug tests during the 2014 games, in Sochi.

Since then, the I.O.C. has stripped more than a dozen athletes of their medals and banned them from the games for life after it re-tested all Russian athlete samples from the games.

On Wednesday, the I.O.C. Is expected to decide whether to ban Russian athletes from next year's games all together.
