Russia's president tells athletes to focus on the games

Posted: Updated:

Russian president Vladimir Putin today  told his country's Olympic athletes to forget about doping scandals when they compete at the Pyeongchang winter games.

Olympic organizers banned the Russian national team from the 2018 games as punishment for an alleged doping scheme during the 2014 Sochi games.

The International Olympic Committee invited 169 Russians considered "clean" to compete in South Korea.

They will march under a neutral flag and use the name "Olympic athletes from Russia."
