Russians appeal to CAS seeking Olympic spots

Russians appeal to CAS seeking Olympic spots”

Just days before the curtain rises on the Winter Olympics, it's still not certain who will be competing.

Physical therapy professor is among the global experts in Pyeongchang studying the performance of the athletes for the worldwide Olympic Committee.

Six-time Olympic gold medalist Viktor Ahn and three former National Hockey League players are among 32 Russian athletes who filed appeals Tuesday seeking spots at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

A hearing is likely on Wednesday, CAS said.

The 32 athletes all failed to pass the mandatory International Olympic Committee vetting — imposed as a result of Russian doping at the 2014 Sochi Olympics — and weren't invited to the games.

"It is outrageous that there is no concrete reason which explains my exclusion from the Olympics, and furthermore people now view me as an athlete who used doping", Ahn wrote in an open letter to IOC President Thomas Bach last month.

Any Russians who win late invitations would compete under "Olympic Athletes from Russia" because the Russian team is formally banned for doping at the Sochi Olympics.

Being prepared with such a record number of condoms might seem like an overkill, but over the years the Olympics has earned a notoriety for the number of hookups among athletes within the Olympic Village.

"It includes, for example, evidence of suspicious Steroid Profile values, DNA inconsistencies and irregularities of the Athlete Biological Passport, as well as evidence provided necessarily need to be transmitted to the athletes".

So far, the International Olympic Committee has invited 169 Russian athletes to compete in the upcoming Winter Games.

The petition follows the IOC's refusal of a request Monday for 15 Russian athletes and coaches "cleared of doping" to attend the Pyeongchang Games. If they win gold medals, the Olympic anthem will be played.

The IOC said after reviewing each case, there were additional suspicions "about the integrity of the athletes".
