IOC 'banned be-st Russian athletes, doesn't want Russia to perform well' - skiing coach Markus Cramer

IOC 'banned best Russian athletes, doesn't want Russia to perform well' - skiing coach Markus Cramer | 26 Jan 2018 | The International Olympic Committee's decision to ban leading Russian athletes from the 2018 Winter Games without any proof might be an "unfair" attempt to degrade Russia, according to Markus Cramer, the Russian skiing team coach. "That decision was taken without any evidence by the IOC," Cramer told RT's video agency Ruptly, referring to the Olympic body's decision to exclude some leading Russian athletes. The athletes were on a special list previously filed to the IOC by the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC). On December 23, the IOC Invitation Review Panel excluded 111 of the 500 Russian athletes listed in the application without providing any reason for the decision. The banned athletes were deemed to have failed the panel's requirements.
