 IOC asked 11 Russian drug-related athletes to return Sochi Winter Olympic medals


The IOC has asked 11 Russian athletes to return their medals. The International Court of Sports Arbitration has ruled that these athletes violated anti-doping regulations during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. IOC officials said.

In February this year, the International Court of Sports Arbitration ruled on the appeals of 39 Russian athletes, supported the appeals of 28 of them, cancelled the relevant penalties and restored their personal achievements at the Sochi Winter Olympics.
