The International Olympic Committee has decided to ban Russian athletes from marching under their own flag at the Closing Ceremony of the PyeongChang Olympic Games, according to Inside The Games.

It was noted that since two Russian athletes failed doping tests at these Games, the Committee didn’t even consider lifting this preventive measure.

However, the suspension of Russian Olympic Committee will be lifted once it has been confirmed that there have been no additional doping violations among all the other Olympic Athletes from Russia.
