Russia barred from 2018 Winter Olympics

The Olympic IOC Board banned the Russian Olympic Committee from participating in the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang following allegations of the "systemic manipulation of the anti-doping system."

NBC broke the news around 11:45 a.m. MST Tuesday. 



The ban means that Russian athletes may still participate in the Olympics, but must compete under a neutral flag.
