BEREG-Kit

The matter will be discussed when U.S. Vice President Mike Pence meets with Abe in Tokyo before heading to the opening ceremony of the Olympics, and they are expected to agree on the need to conduct the drill as normal, the source said.

"Of course, one can speculate about the need to reform CAS, especially after the International Olympic Committee was not satisfied with its decision [on the Russian athletes]", Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko said Sunday. "It's very important to us". "().to my knowledge, in my experience, these villages are among the best that we have ever had in the Winter Games, if not the best", he said. "Sport is one area where unfortunately it seems to be a big problem". "We are still looking into this issue. we want them to (give) a satisfying explanation", Bach said, adding: "We are extremely anxious about the governance of AIBA".

Bach also admitted the IOC had concerns over the judging at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

On Saturday, the International Olympic Committee said that 13 of the 28 athletes cleared by CAS would be considered by a special International Olympic Committee panel for a possible invitation to take part in Pyeongchang.

Thirteen Russian athletes and two coaches whose life bans for doping were lifted by a top sports court may be invited to take part in the Pyeongchang Olympics, the IOC said on Saturday.

McLaren's findings resulted in a ban on Russian athletes taking part in the Pyeongchang Games. So far the panel was not able to produce a reasoned decision, which we are eagerly waiting for. In its surprise ruling, the world's top sports tribunal cleared 28 Russian athletes of doping allegations and reinstated their status to compete. "We have given those invitations on the basis of a very, very strict process to try to find athletes who are clean and who we wish to invite".

The mother of gymnast Maggie Nichols, Gina Nichols, said her daughter was not contacted for 11 months after she spoke to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Times reported.

The International Olympic Committee, however, stated that doping-free athletes from Russian Federation might go to the 2018 Olympic Games under the classification of neutral athletes, or the OAR status, which stands for 'Olympic Athlete from Russian Federation'.
