The Russian Olympic team has been suspended from the 2018 Winter Olympics by the IOC (International Olympic Committee). The team has supposedly been caught taking performance enhanced drugs.

The Olympics will take place in PyeongChang, Korea, in February. Some of the countries that will be participating are Angola, Chile, Georgia, and many others, according to olympic.org.

Thomas Bach, president of the IOC stated, “For systematic manipulation of the anti-doping rules and system,” according to espn.co.uk.

The investigation has been going on since 2014, and just now solved, using a drug test.

Any athletes from Russia who receive special dispensation to compete will do so as individuals wearing a neutral uniform, and the official record books will forever show that Russia won zero medals, according to  NewYorkTimes.com.
