Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky practices ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea on February 7, 2018.

But Russia's hopes of a full return to Olympic competition suffered a serious blow this week when a Russian curling medallist was found guilty of an anti-doping violation and stripped of his medal. Krushelnitsky, who won mixed doubles bronze along with his wife, Anastasia Bryzgalova, has protested his innocence and officials have hinted at foul play. Norway's Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten lost out to Krushelnitsky and Bryzgalova in the bronze medal play-off.

Krushelnitsky waived his right to a CAS hearing, and the decision was based on written evidence.

Russia's chances of waving the national flag at the closing ceremony appeared to diminish after Olympic curling bronze medalist Alexander Krushelnitsky tested positive for the banned substance meldonium.

Despite their team's suspension, Russian Federation were allowed to send 168 athletes to compete as neutrals in Pyeongchang, after they were passed clean following rigorous testing.

Word comes as the International Olympic Committee is due to decide on Saturday whether to formally reinstate the Russian team for the closing ceremony.

IOC President Thomas Bach met Wednesday with Igor Levitin, a former Russian minister of transport and adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin. "It was (Levitin's) birthday and I believe the main content was the president wishing him a happy birthday", Adams said. Adams said Bach and Levitin "may have talked about something else", but he declined to speculate what that might have been.

The code requires compliance with International Olympic Committee anti-doping rules.

After the disqualification of Russian Federation bronze in mixed doubles Curling moved to Norwegian Duo Christine Moen, Skaslien and Magnus Nedregate.

Russia's Olympic Committee (ROC) has paid US$15 million (10.80 million pounds) to help develop global anti-doping efforts as part of the conditions set for the country's possible return to the Games, it said on Thursday.
