The Sports Arbitration Court (CAS) brought joyful news to all Russian athletes and fans, but it infuriated the IOC. His first impressions were shared by the Minister of Sports of Russia Pavel Kolobkov. He stressed that the CAS decision once again confirms that our athletes are clean, and this is indeed a triumph of justice. Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Vitaly Mutko admitted that the verdict was unexpected for him, but from this no less joyful. According to him, special commissions worked carelessly and in vain to encroach on the names of the greatest athletes without weighty arguments. "I just want to congratulate our guys who were acquitted. We know what stress they endured. We love them and will never leave them.. Now the honor of these guys is justified. Some of them are a champion, somebody is a prize-winner, someone is a participant ", - quotes his" Championship ". In the near future, according to the Deputy Prime Minister, the ROC will appeal to the IOC with a request to allow pardoned athletes to participate in the Games in Pyeongchang. The international organization did not keep silent for long. There they did not hide that they were disappointed by the CAS decision and intend to appeal to the Swiss court. At the same time stressed that the justification of athletes by arbitration does not automatically make them participants of the Olympics in South Korea. "CAS results do not mean that 28 athletes will be invited to the Games. The absence of sanctions applied to them does not mean the existence of a privilege, "the statement says.. Apparently, a new battle will soon unfold in the sports and political arena. IOC can now turn away and other countries. After all, if such an organization makes its opinion in society, and then proves that it is a lie, then what respect can one speak about. Despite such contemptuous attitude on the part of the international committee, domestic athletes can breathe out and rejoice, as their honor is again restored. Fortunately for skeletonist Elena Nikitina there is no limit. She thanked CAS and told about her feelings, reports "Sport-Express". "I'm happy, as if I once again won this medal. We were waiting for such a decision, "she said.. Skier Alexei Petukhov called to the conscience of all the haters who accused him of using dope. "Now let those who spoke ill of us think, let them be ashamed. And we won, it's great that the court heard us, "he added.. Another skier Nikita Kryukov breathed a sigh of relief and noted that now the real truth was revealed. "If someone suddenly had doubts about the" purity "of our athletes, now this doping myth has collapsed.

People all over the world will understand that I and my teammates achieved results through their work, "he stressed.. Alexander Legkov compared CAS decision with the second birthday. "I thank everyone who supported me. It's like a second birthday! ", - quotes his" Match TV ". For the innocence of the athletes, the president of the Russian Luge Federation Natalia Garth. She admitted that she "jumped for joy and screamed". Four-time Olympic champion in biathlon Alexander Tikhonov demanded to call to account the President of the IOC Thomas Bach for false accusations. "It is necessary to declare sanctions to Thomas Bach. He should be punished for accusing Russian athletes, "Tikhonov stressed.. He once again noted that this scandal was not in the history of the sport. In addition, the ex-biathlete believes that it is necessary to defend his athletes more actively and more rigidly. Otherwise, there is a great risk of missing the Summer Games in 2020.

Since CAS has restored all the results of suspended athletes shown at the Sochi Olympics, the team once again headed the overall standings. Previously, Russia lost its first place because of punishments. Attention all world sports riveted to the IOC. Now only they can admit the Russians before the competition in Pyeongchang. It remains to be hoped that the application of the Russian national team will significantly expand and strengthen, at the expense of the country's leaders.
