The IOC DC found the athletes to have committed anti-doping rule violations during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, disqualified them from the events in which they participated at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games and forfeited all medals won by them.

Twenty-two of those banned and disqualified by the International Olympic Committee including cross-country skier Alexander Legkov and bobsleigher Aleksandr Zubkov - both stripped of their gold medals from Sochi - filed appeals with CAS before Christmas.

As well as those four golds, Russian Federation has also lost nine other medals, with other banned athletes including skeleton star Elena Nikitina, who has recently been crowned European and World Cup champion and would be the favourite in Pyeongchang next month.

The IOC also banned or suspended several officials and fined the ROC £11million.

The IOC, however, stated that doping-free athletes from Russia might go to the 2018 Olympic Games under the classification of neutral athletes, or the OAR status, which stands for 'Olympic Athlete from Russia.' The IOC reserved the right to the final word in regard to Russian athletes, who will go to PyeongChang under the neutral status.

They will, however, have strong cases to have their lifetime Olympic bans lifted.
