To Ban Or Not To Ban? IOC to decide fate of Russian team at 2018 Winter Olympics

The fate of Team Russia at the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea is to be decided later on Tuesday.
The International Olympic Committee is due to meet in Lausanne, Switzerland to assess the findings of two commissions into alleged state-sponsored doping in Russia.
The IOC is considering a number of options for Russia’s athletes. The most severe would be a blanket ban on the entire team.
So far, 25 Russian athletes have been banned from participating in IOC events.

RT’s Ilya Petrenko has been looking into the story.
