More Russian athletes appeal Pyeongchang ban to CAS

Thomas Bach IOC chief

"The IOC, we would never have expected this", Bach said as uncertainty lingers over the Russian athletes.

Kosachev, chairman of the Russian upper house's Foreign Affairs Committee, told Sputnik:"the crisis of the entire worldwide Olympic movement is imminently looming ..."

After the CAS decision, Russia's Olympic Committee requested that 13 active athletes and two who had become coaches be allowed to participate in the February 9-25 Games.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport said last week that there was "insufficient evidence" of anti-doping violations against 28 Russian athletes.

According to the statement, the grounds for the lawsuit were the non-transparent nature of the criteria that has been applied, the discrimination based on citizenship grounds, the illegal nature of the decision, failure to comply with the CAS verdict, damage to reputation, dignity and professional careers.

He added: "The reasoned decisions in high profile cases are critically important".

The Olympic Charter is a set of principles of Olympic Movement, adopted by the IOC and used by the organisation as its statute.

IOC had banned Russian Federation from participating in the Pyeongyang Olympic Winter Games on charges of engaging in doping by 'manipulating the anti-doping system at the Sochi Games in 2014.

Militant Escapes from Indian Police Custody in Kashmir
Naveed was close associate of Abu Qasim, a top Lashkar-e-Toiba commander who was killed in 2015 in an encounter in south Kashmir. Head constable Mushtaq Ahmad was killed while another policeman later succumbed to his injuries in Srinagar's main hospital.

The IOC announcement comes after the body's president, Thomas Bach, slammed the CAS decision as "extremely disappointing and surprising" and called for reforms to the independent sports tribunal.

The CAS ruling has induced a row between the top sports court and the International Olympic Committee, which was seemingly caught off guard by the Court's decision.

Therefore, the Panel unanimously recommended that the IOC not extend an invitation to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 to the 15 individuals requested by the suspended ROC. It said this raised questions about the "integrity of these athletes".

The IOC has barred Russian Federation from the Pyeongchang Olympics, which open on Friday, over a widespread doping conspiracy. It includes Mr Günter Younger, Head of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Intelligence and Investigations Department; Mr Pedro Goncalves, GAISF DFSU Project Manager in charge of the Pre-Games Testing Task Force secretariat; and Dr Richard Budgett, Olympic rowing champion and IOC Medical and Scientific Director.

"The group had a debilitating trip, our baggage was deferred and we were late for a night instructional course", he said. The court had said those might not be ready until the end of the month.

John Coates, the Australian IOC member who also oversees CAS operations, said Tuesday that the 32 had also filed appeals in Swiss courts, but didn't give details. The Panels in the cases of the 39 Russian athletes are working on them, and we look forward to their publication as soon as possible.

The IOC has invited 169 Russians to compete in Pyeongchang as "Olympic Athletes from Russia" under a neutral flag, but has said it reserves the right to review and appeal the CAS decision.
