Russia Banned for Long-term Doping
December 5, 2017
Russia will not have an official representation at the 2018 Winter Olympics, after a ban handed down by the International Olympic Committee. In making the decision, a special panel cited the results of an investigation that found evidence of systematic doping involving more than 1,000 athletes in more than 30 sports for a number of years, most recently during the 2014 Winter Olympics, which took place in Sochi, Russia. The panel found evidence of doping and actions to cover it up during the 2012 Summer Olympics and as far back as 2011.
