  • Organisers have Winter Olympics admitted ticket sales have been slower than expected with international concern North Korea's nuclear weapons programme dampening enthusiam

A group of 17 national anti-doping agencies (NADOs), including those of the United States and the United Kingdom, issued a statement calling for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban Russian athletes from the Games in South Korea.

The sport, along with athletics, represented more than 80 percent of the positive cases from those re-tests, International Olympic Committee member Denis Oswald said on Friday.

"In a few days we will have the results of the first batch of 50 bottles and then we can proceed", Oswald said. This commission has the power to open investigations against members of the International Olympic Committee and proposing sanctions then imposed by the executive board.

We don't have any of the names or sports of the 96 athletes, but the one who was disciplined was prosecuted because an incriminating urine sample was uncovered. "We have been working closely with winter sports federations and they will be ready as soon as we have made our decision to go on with their own procedure".

That probe found evidence of widespread, state-sponsored doping corruption inside Russian Federation that impacted 1,000 athletes covering 30 sports.

At the close of this week's IOC meetings, Thomas Bach said the committee will continue to appeal for diplomatic solutions to the problems, and that it is monitoring deliberations in the U.N. Security Council, which on Friday condemned the North Korean test.

"This takes the total of gold medal events to 102? making it the largest number of events ever contested at an Olympic Winter Games to date", organisers said.

"It wouldn't surprise me at all if the fix is in already, just like in Rio", said Travis Tygart, the CEO of the US Anti-Doping Agency, who was among those calling for the ban.

This IOC reanalysis programme was initiated by the IOC prior to the Olympic Games in Rio previous year in order "to provide a level playing field for all clean athletes" via, for example, targeted pre-tests and the reanalysis of stored samples from the Olympic Games Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

Oswald said his commission will first deal with six Russian skiers who were banned following the WADA report, and after that it will deal with Russians who are due to take part in Pyeongchang qualifiers.

The reforms outlined by the leaders support a strong, global regulator in WADA and an worldwide commitment to totally independent anti-doping systems.

Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of Moscow's discredited anti-doping laboratory, identified in a 2015 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report as an "aider and abettor of the doping activities", revealed a scheme for covering up Russian competitors' positive drug samples at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

"The comments made.omit entirely all the work that's been done to develop proper anti-doping systems in Russia", Reedie said. "It looks backward instead of looking forward".

"I want to make it quite clear that most what they say in a press release is not the policy of WADA, and what they say in my view is not helpful", he added.
