PyeongChang 2018: Russian Federation curlers to hand back bronze medals

Krushelnitsky won bronze alongside Anastasia Bryzgalova who has not failed a doping test

On Tuesday, the AFP has learned from this source that the player of Russian has in fact been "tested twice positive in two days to meldonium".

Krushelnitsky, who won mixed doubles bronze with his wife, Anastasia Bryzgalova, has protested his innocence and officials have hinted at foul play.

Krushelnitckii had filed a case with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) after an initial positive doping test, but dropped it Thursday after failing a second test.

South Korean President Moon jae-in has hailed the participation of Russian athletes at the Winter Olympic Games despite criticism of the decision to allow them to compete amid the country's doping scandal.

The CAS said that the results obtained by the team of Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation in the event are disqualified.

The guilty ruling comes after the athlete waived his right to the CAS hearing, saying he accepted a formal violation of the OIlympic's anti-doping rules.

Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky has been stripped of his Olympic bronze medal after admitting to a doping violation at the Pyeongchang Games.

Postal Worker shot and killed on Dallas interstate
Postal Service Inspector in charge of the Fort Worth Division said safety of postal employees is of the utmost importance. Postal Service was fatally shot early Monday on a Dallas highway, according to local reports.

The delegation said the concentration of meldonium found in Krushelnitckii's sample suggested he would not have derived a benefit.

In a statement to the Russian news agency TASS, Krushelnitckii wrote "having weighed up the pros and cons, I chose to withdraw my case from CAS".

The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) has paid $15 million to help develop global anti-doping efforts as part of the conditions set for the country's possible return to the Games, it said on Thursday.

The payment of the fine is one of the IOC's key criteria in deciding whether to lift Russia's suspension before the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday.

Adams was responding to the latest criticism by Pound, who said athletes should scare the International Olympic Committee by threatening to stay away from the Games unless they got tougher on doping.

"I am ready to confirm that not once in the whole time that I have been in sport have I taken any banned substance or competed dishonestly in any way", he said.
