Russian doping samples from Sochi Olympics to be available in 1-2 months

The results of the recheck of doping samples of Russian athletes, who performed at the Sochi Olympics, will be available within one-two months, the member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Gerhard Heiberg, said.

"The commission has been appointed to carry out the tests. We have appointed a commission to recheck the samples of every Russian athlete from the Sochi Games. This should happen quickly, as in 2018 the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang will take place, and everyone should know what is going on [by then]," Sputnik cited Heiberg as saying.

On December 23, the IOC opened disciplinary proceedings against 28 Russian athletes, who performed at 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia’s Sochi.
