Russian Federation doping issue persists

Still, some International Olympic Committee members are anxious about the timing.

Russian Federation has denied that there was a state-backed conspiracy to cheat, something that it is required to acknowledge as part of a rehabilitation plan set out by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

"In a few days we will have the results of the first batch of 50 bottles and then we can proceed", Oswald said.

Meanwhile, a first batch of athletes suspected of having been part of a Russian doping ring at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics may soon be charged with doping-related offences, according to the head of the investigation.

"For the other 95 cases, the IFs determined that there was insufficient evidence to assert ADRVs and, following WADA's individual evaluation of each case, which was confirmed by external counsel, we opted not to appeal the decisions on the basis that the available evidence was simply insufficient to support the assertion of an ADRV against the 95 athletes, i.e. athlete names appearing on a list".

The scale and audaciousness of Russian doping was unveiled past year when an investigator for the World Anti-Doping Agency, Richard McLaren, laid out how it worked, shortly before the Rio Games.

Soohorang (L) and Bandabi, mascots of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, pose with American children during an event to promote the games at Times Square in Manhattan, New York, on June 23, 2017. "It must be clear months before". "This is just the position of several NADOs", said Zhukov.

Among his immediate tasks will be a vote-buying scandal involving last year's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

"WADA President Craig Reedie's words were very important as he was speaking about the active work aimed to reinstate the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) and about huge progress that has been made".

International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach has expressed regret that most of the world's best ice hockey players will miss the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games because the NHL is not interrupting its season.

In a letter to the International Cycling Union (UCI) in August previous year, the IOC said the three cyclists "do not meet the criteria set by the IOC Executive Board" to compete in Rio, according to the CAS ruling on their case.

Earlier in August, Mutko said it will not take long to implement the remaining World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) criteria for the reinstatement of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA).

"We are now working through an agreed roadmap", Reedie said.
