'I think at the end of this Olympic Winter Games at Pyeongchang 2018 we can all be very happy for many different reasons, and the IOC is very happy about the great success of these Olympic Games, ' he said. At the closing ceremony, Russians will have to parade in a grey Olympic Athletes from Russia uniform under the Olympic flag, instead of marching down under the white, blue and red tricolor as Team Russia.

Two members of the Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR) team - curler Aleksandr Krushelnitckii and bobsledder Nadezhda Sergeeva - failed drugs tests at the Winter Olympic Games here.

Her anti-doping rule violation follows that of Alexander Krushelnitsky, who on Thursday was stripped of the mixed doubles curling bronze medal he won with his wife, Anastasia Bryzgalova.

In a statement issued Sunday night, WADA said it "acknowledges" the IOC's latest move but pointed out that Russia is still not adhering to the World Anti-Doping Code."It should be clarified that the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) remains non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code as it has not yet met the necessary criteria of RUSADA's Roadmap to Compliance, following Russia's proven systemic manipulation of the doping control process", WADA said in a statement.

"Clean athletes who have had their Olympic moments stolen, whether it be by missing a medal or even failing to qualify as a result of false results achieved by Russian athletes, deserve a more principled and steadfast response", iNADO said. "I feel it. Maybe it's a sign to them that we're clean", Sergeeva said.

Russian fans on Monday gave gold medal- winning athletes a heroes' welcome home at a Moscow airport following games overshadowed by the country's doping scandal.

In Pyeongchang, there had been a sense that the IOC might lift the ban on Russian Federation - particularly after its national committee paid a $15 million fine that was levied along with the suspension.

This entire investigation was instigated by whistleblowing doctor Grigory Rodchenkov, who was director of Russia's anti-doping laboratory during Sochi 2014.

Letting them do so would be the IOC's "worst decision", he said.

"Thomas Bach was a drowning man", lawyer Jim Walden said on the weekend.

International Olympic Committee member Nicole Hoevertsz from Aruba and head of the Russia implementation group said the Russian delegation met numerous criteria required for reinstatement during the Olympics. "The acrimony caused by Bach's mismanagement should be his undoing".

However, taking into account the two doping violations at the Games, she recommended that the ban be kept because they represented a "violation" of the executive board guidelines for the OAR's participation.
