Sports lawyer Artyom Patsev confirms the fact that CAS granted the appeal of Russian athletes.
Earlier it was reported that if the Sports Arbitration Court appeals to the Russian athletes, they will be able to join the list of participants in the Olympic Games. This is primarily about the Olympics in South Korean Pyongchang, which starts on February 9.
Among the athletes whose appeals are satisfied CAS: Alexander Tretyakov (skeleton), Alexander Legkov (skiing), Olga Fatkulina (speed skating), Maxim Vylegzhanin (skiing), Ivan Skobrev (speed skating), Albert Demchenko (luge), Maria Orlova (skeleton) and others.
The appeals of Russian bobsleighs and representatives of the women's hockey team are partially satisfied. No decisions were taken on the three Russian biathlon women: Olga Zaitseva, Olga Vilukhina and Yana Romanova. Hearings on their appeals are postponed.
