Russian Olympic Committee's membership in IOC reinstated

The International Olympic Committee has reinstated the membership of the Russian Olympic Committee in the organization, ROC President Alexander Zhukov said.

"Today, we received a letter from the IOC on the reinstatement," he said. "The ROC’s reinstatement comes as the examination of doping tests from the PyeongChang Olympics has ended. The IOC may confirm that the other results [of examination of Russian athletes’ doping samples] are negative," TASS cited the ROC President as saying.

"This means that the ROC’s rights have been fully reinstated," Zhukov concluded.

On December 5, 2017, the IOC suspended the Russian Olympic Committee over alleged violations of anti-doping rules, particularly during the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games.
