The International Olympic Committee has allowed 169 out of 389 Russian athletes to compete in the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, as Reuters reports.

The committee allowed the athletes with no history of doping to compete as neutrals, officially known as “Olympic Athletes from Russia”.

Not all of those who weren’t admitted to the Games have had a history of doping, though. Others could potentially be invited to the Games depending on available quota places.
