IOC restores Russia's Olympic membership after doping ban

New Delhi, Mar 01 (ANI): International Olympic Committee has reinstated Russia's Olympic membership after suspending it over doping allegations. Russia's Olympics Committee was suspended by the IOC in December - after they were found to participate in, "unprecedented systematic manipulation" of the anti-doping system.

A team of 168 Russians competed as part of a neutral "Olympic Athlete from Russia" team - but two of them failed drug tests. It made the decision after remaining doping tests of Russian athletes at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics came back negative.

All the athletes were required to prove that they were clean before the games.
