Russian Federation has appealed to Olympic authorities to restore its Olympic status and allow its athletes to march with the national flag on Sunday at the Winter Games closing ceremony, but it could be waiting until the last minute for a decision.
Russian bobsledder Nadezhda Sergeyeva has been banned from the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics after failing a doping test, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said on February 24.
Sergeeva, who finished 12th in the women's bobsled, tested positive for Trimetazidine, a medication used to treat angina.
But Krushelnitsky decided not to contest the case and the court said that he had admitted doping.
Russian Federation had nearly been banned from participating in this Olympic Games due to massive doping violations at the Sochi-2014 event.
Pozdnyakov said he had apologised to the International Olympic Committee for the doping cases, calling them isolated incidents of athlete negligence rather than anything systematic.
If the suspension is not lifted, the athletes will march behind the Olympic flag and in neutral uniforms, as they did for the opening ceremony.
In the video, which resurfaced following confirmation that the substance was in her system, Sergeeva, 30, wears the "I DON'T DO DOPING" sweatshirt as she trains at the Sliding Center Sanki Olympic bobsledding track near Sochi.
The IOC executive was meeting on Saturday to consider a report on the Russians' conduct at the Games, before making a decision on whether to lift the suspension of their Olympic status and allow them to fly their flag at the closing ceremony.
Pozdnyakov said he had apologised to the International Olympic Committee for the Russian's two doping violations but said they did not have a systematic character. But despite extensive vetting Sergeyeva and another Russian athlete failed tests during the Games.
Sergeyeva's ban came a day after Russian curler Aleksandr Krushelnitsky was stripped of a bronze medal for using meldonium.
This isn't the first time that Sergeeva has fallen foul of anti-doping laws as she also tested positive for the banned substance meldonium in 2016.
