Ski news : Russia’s Olympic team has been banned from entering all events at PyeongChang 2018

The host of the last Sochi Olympics, Russia, has been banned from entering all events at the forthcoming PyeongChang 2018 Olympics over doping scandal at the last Games.

From the Guardian YT channel:

The Russian Olympic Committee has been banned from next year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and ordered to pay $15m in costs by the International Olympic Committee for its part in a state-sponsored doping programme at the Sochi Games in 2014. The IOC also banned the then minister of sport, Vitaly Mutko, and his then deputy, Yuri Nagornykh, from participating in all future Olympics. The decision was announced on Tuesday by the IOC president, Thomas Bach, a former Olympic fencer

Ski news : The Brit skiing sensation talks with CNN about his Olympic goals

The UK hasn’t had a World Cup medal in skiing for 36 years. We have never had an Olympic medal in skiing . . . well, not unless you count Alain Baxter’s Bronze. Baxter took Bronze at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics – albeit he had his medal (wrongly) stripped for the presence of banned substance in his urine**.

Anyway, point is, we’ve never been that great at scoring high in World class events. That is, not until now. Meet Dave Ryding.

**Alain Baxter would later prove his innocence on the charge of taking a banned substance. In the run-up to his slalom event, Baxter had been using a US version of the popular Vicks inhaler decongestant which, unbeknownst to him, contained trace elements of a restricted drug (methamphetamine). This banned substance was not present in the UK version of Vicks and Baxter was later able to prove he had been completely unaware of taking the drug. Nonetheless, the IOC has yet to retroactively award him his Bronze medal.
