Court of arbitration for sport (CAS) in Lausanne decided to justify 28 Russian athletes and undo a lifetime suspension that they imposed the international Olympic Committee (IOC). The athletes themselves do not hide their joy, however, noting that it was bound to happen.

Olympic champion and Sochi 2014, skier Alexander Legkov very emotionally accepted the decision of the court of arbitration for Sport.
“Now we need this time to survive. I have no words. I am very happy! Thank you all for your support and kind words, it’s like a second birthday. I was hoping so,” said Legkov broadcast “Match TV”.
Skater Olga Fatkulina was more restrained and said that the CAS verdict was expected, because justice always on the side of truth.
“To be honest, I am lost. In my heart I’m happy, but the emotions shackled. For me it is not a holiday, because we’re clean athletes and won medals at the Olympics without doping. Knew it will be so, and we will now be in idle mode: go to Pyeongchang-gun or not”, – quotes Fatkulina “Sport FM”.
Elena Nikitina that at the Olympics-2014 in Sochi won in skeleton “bronze”, commented the solution is very simple, put in your Instagram photo with the caption “Hello again!”.
Hello again !!!?? Hello again!!!✌?
Her colleague, skeletonwitch Olga Potylitsyna said also very happy about the removal from it of sanctions.
“So relieved that charges were dropped. Very excited and happy, but sad for those guys who still punished as many as 11 people”, – quotes the words of Potylitsina “championship”. She also stressed that the Olympics in Pyeongchang is still not go, because it does not pass the quota. And watch she also will not be, because “now the Game is a very strange attitude.”
