IOC executives to meet Saturday to decide Russia at closing ceremony

Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - The executive committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will meet Saturday afternoon to decide whether Russian athletes can take part at the Pyeongchang Games closing ceremony under their own flag the next day.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams confirmed the date on Wednesday but left it open when their decision would be published and whether the Russian delegation would be heard.

It also remains unclear whether the executives would ask the IOC Session for approval of their decision.

The Session is to reconvene Sunday morning to elect new members but doubts have been raised whether a quorum can be reached after many members have left South Korea, even though Adams insisted "there will be a quorum."

Russia‘s Olympic Committee was suspended in December over doping practices in the country. Its team is competing as Olympic Athlete from Russia at the Games without its own flag and anthem.

The IOC said Russia could be reinstated for the closing ceremony if they behaved well, with an implementation panel looking into this matter and then reporting to the executive board.

"The implementation group will look at everything. It will will communicate [to the executive board] on Saturday afternoon, and then we will take it from there," Adams said.

The positive doping case of Russian curling bronze medallist Alexandr Krushelnitckii could factor in, with a hearing at the Court of Arbitration for Sport believed to take place later Wednesday or Thursday.

Adams did not want to speculate on whether the reported defamation lawsuit from three Russian biathletes at the New York Supreme Court against key doping practices whistleblower Grigory Rodchenkov would also be considered by the implementation group.

"There won‘t be running commentary on each case," Adams said.
