KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Their appeals against Olympic bans were fully satisfied, while the request to reexamine the cases of another 11 were only "partially upheld".

"Our basic stance is to respect the IOC's decision. and to do so, in particular, for IOC-run events", he said.

Medvedev said the "purpose of this decision is very far away from sports", aimed to cause "political harm" to Russian Federation. The Kremlin argued the CAS decision meant the 15 should be treated as clean. We are very much satisfied with our relations with the organizing committee. "We're convinced that the CAS ruling has proved that such suspicions had no grounds".

"We can not lose sight of the extent nor the scale of the efforts that Russian authorities and athletes engaged in to cheat the anti-doping system", it said.

The IOC said the two coaches "should not be considered for an invitation" because of previous evidence available to the IOC.

"The additional information included data from the LIMS database, traces of prohibited substances, evidence of steroid profile manipulation and further confidential information provided to the Panel by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency)".

"I believe that in the collective mind of a significant portion of the world, and among the athletes of the world, the International Olympic Committee has not only failed to protect athletes, but has made it possible for cheating athletes to prevail against the clean athletes", Pound said, describing the IOC's world as a "comfortable cocoon".

He added: "This decision has little in common with sports".

The 15 were among a group of 28 Russians who had been banned for life from the Olympics for doping. One of them being the invitation of around 169 athletes with no doping history to compete as neutrals.

A decision on whether or not to allow up to 47 Russians to compete at the Winter Olympics may not now come until the day the Pyeongchang games opens. Tokyo has eclipsed all of its Olympic predecessors in terms of sponsorship proceeds by nearly three times and the IOC's coordination commission chief for the 2020 Games, John Coates, praised overall progress. "Our future depends on what we do but not what we say". "It is clearly an issue that has affected all of us". "If we can appeal it, we will appeal it".

The IOC has been given until tomorrow to file written submissions. However, the International Olympic Committee says any appeal first requires seeing the reasoning of the judgments.

That confidence is not shared by the WADA athlete committee, whose 16 members include Britain's Adam Pengilly, another vocal critic at the IOC session, and the past and newly-elected chairs of the IOC athletes' commission, American Olympic ice hockey champion Angela Ruggiero and Zimbabwean swimming great Kirsty Coventry.

If they win gold medals, the Olympic anthem will be played.
