Mark Adams, IOC Spokesperson: «Yep and there was to be a hearing this afternoon. There's some speculation as to whether that will take place but we're still waiting obviously for the CAS decision to come back, so. Angela Ruggiero, IOC Athletes' Commission Chairperson: «So again there's more input. Yes it's raising more concern, but again I don't want to speculate. My job as the chair is to ask... Еще each one of my commission members, the morning of the 25th, and we have a voice at that three person table to make a decision. International Olympic Committee (IOC) Athletes' Commission Chairperson Angela Ruggiero categorised the scandals currently engulfing Russia as «hard for everyone», in a press conference from Pyeongchang, Thursday. Ruggiero's comments come at a time when a high number of athletes are said to be voicing concerns about the future of the Russian Olympic Committee and Russian athlete's future participation in the game, with arguments both for and against directed to the IOC's implementation committee. The Implementation Committee, chaired by IOC Executive Board Member Nicole Hoevertsz is due to announce a decision on Russia's Olympic future on the 25th. Earlier this week news emerged that OAR curling medal-winning athlete Alexander Krushelnitsky was under investigation for allegedly testing positive on the banned substance meldonium, with his case expected to be heard on Thursday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in PyeongChang.
