The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will consider the participation of 13 Russian athletes and two coaches, justified in the case of a doping scandal, in the 2018 Olympics in South Korean Pyeongchang, DW reports citing IOC representative Mark Adams.

It is noted that the case of each of the athletes the IOC will consider separately before making a decision.

We recall, on February 1, the Sports Arbitration Court (CAS) satisfied the appeal of 28 Russian athletes to the decision of the IOC, which suspended them from the Olympics. Also, a number of medals won in Sochi in 2014 and taken away on the background of the doping scandal were returned to the Russian Olympians.

The court concluded that 28 Russian athletes "do not have enough evidence" about involvement in the doping scheme.

Earlier, the IOC suspended the Russian national team from the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea. It was reported that athletes could take part in the Olympics, but only under a neutral flag and without the arms of their country on a sport uniform.
