Putin to allow Russians to compete at Pyeongchang

AP, MOSCOW

Mutko is now in charge of the country’s preparations for next year’s soccer World Cup.

He was barred from the Olympics for life by the IOC on Tuesday.

Also on Wednesday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said it has registered appeals by 22 Russian athletes against their disqualifications from the 2014 Sochi Olympics for doping.

It said the athletes have requested verdicts before the Pyeongchang Games open on Feb. 9.

The appeals relate to earlier bans against individual athletes, not the ruling on the Russian team.
