Russian athletes appeal against Olympic ban
13 January 2018, 01:49 | Casey Mitchell
Russian deputy prime minister Vitaly Mutko has been removed as the 2018 World Cup boss
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.
According to the tribunal, a CAS arbitration procedure has been opened for each athlete.
With this being the case, Mutko is set to miss the Winter Olympics, scheduled to take place in the South Korean county between February 9 and 25.
The Swiss-based court announced on Tuesday that it registered 42 appeals from Russian athletes against decisions made by the IOC Disciplinary Commission to bar them for life from future editions of Olympic Games.

Missler purchased the winning ticket on January 5 from a 7-Eleven convenience store located in Pasco County. Some on Twitter were already asking for Missler's money, while others just hoped he would use it wisely.
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.
