Also, the International Olympic Committee put forth a set of conditions for Russian athletes to compete at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics as neutral athletes.
International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach, who won two gold medals in fencing for West Germany during the 1970s, was disturbed with what was uncovered.
The IOC stopped short of that, instead saying that some Russian athletes will be permitted to compete in Pyeongchang under a specially created status, "Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR)", according to the IOC statement.

That is, if Russian President Vladimir Putin allows them to go to the February 9-25 games. He and other members of the French team that got bronze in the men's 4 x 10-kilometer relay in Sochi are now in line for the silver medal that was stripped in November from the Russian team. The second commission was led by International Olympic Committee member Denis Oswald and focused on individual athletes at Sochi. They've taken away 11 of Russia's 33 medals. "There were no flawless options, but this decision will clearly make it less likely that this ever happens again", it said.
