Olympic Committee Delivers Russia Ruling for 2018 Games

It's unclear how Russia will react after the  International Olympic Committee banned  the country from the 2018 Olympic Winter Games over  a doping scandal .

Although some Russian athletes might be able to participate, their  options would be limited .

They'd compete under a neutral Olympic flag, not their own; the Olympic anthem would play rather than any state-sponsored music; and they'd be labeled "Olympic Athletes from Russia." That's if they do compete.

Russia reportedly might boycott the games altogether.

Russia has repeatedly denied accusations that it for years ran a state-sponsored doping system.  In the 2016 Rio Olympics, the  Refugee Olympic Team  competed under the Olympic flag.
