Russian athletes banned from competing

Posted: Updated:

Several Russian top medal hopefuls for the Winter Olympics have been barred from the Pyeongchang games amid the country's ongoing doping scandal... renewing talk of a boycott from Russia.  

Already depleted by doping bans, Russia now faces an Olympics without some of its top skiers, figure skaters and sliders after they failed to pass international Olympic committee vetting. 

Last month the IOC formally banned the Russian team instead allowing Olympic athletes from Russia under the Olympic flag.
