The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) secretary general, Matthieu Reeb, says Russian athletes banned from the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics will be allowed to participate if the court's Ad Hoc Division upholds their appeals.
A CAS media release on Wednesday informed that the same panel of judges chaired by Bernhard Welten of Switzerland will hear the cases of the 32 athletes together with the second case filed by 15 Russian athletes and coaches when it reconvenes. "I'll just say that we came here to defend our good name and we were fully listened to by the CAS panel", said luge coach Albert Demchenko, who was at the hearing.

The 13 athletes and two coaches in that group included cross-country skiing gold medalist Alexander Legkov and skeleton gold medalist Alexander Tretiakov. Also among the six is speedskater Denis Yuskov, who served a ban for marijuana, and the biathletes Irina Starykh and Alexander Loginov, who returned in 2016 from bans for the blood-booster EPO.
The IOC, which has cleared 169 Russians to compete at PyeongChang, said that "not being sanctioned does not automatically confer the privilege of an invitation".
"If there's a positive ruling, they'll fly in."Russian officials and athletes have indicated that not all of those who have filed appeals plan to compete if they win". They request that CAS overturn the IOC decision and allow them to participate in these Games as Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.
The CAS drew criticism last week when it lifted life Olympic bans imposed on 28 Russians.
