Decision that puts country back top of Sochi medals table welcomed by athletes and politicians
Russia has hailed a decision by the court of arbitration for sport to overturn Olympic doping bans on 28 of the country’s athletes, with the sports ministry declaring that “justice has finally triumphed”.
Cas ruled on Thursday morning that there was insufficient evidence that 28 Russians, including several medallists, had broken anti-doping rules at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
Why did Cas overturn the lifetime Olympics bans on 28 Russians?
