法庭恢复因索契兴奋剂事件被制裁的俄罗斯运动员的参赛成绩 Court Reinstates Russian Athletes Banned For Sochi Doping






The Court of Arbitration for Sport has upheld appeals by 28 Russian athletes who were sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee for an alleged doping scheme at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

The CAS said Thursday there was insufficient evidence that the athletes committed doping violations. It annulled the sanctions against them and reinstated their results from the 2014 games.

The IOC said after the ruling that the 28 athletes who won their appeals would not be invited to participate in this month's Olympics in South Korea. "Not being sanctioned does not automatically confer the privilege of an invitation," the IOC said in a statement.

It further expressed regret at the court's decision, saying it "may have a serious impact on the future fight against doping."

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov welcomed the CAS decision and said Russia would continue to stand up for the rights of its athletes.
