"169 - this is the official list and the athletes will decide themselves if they will travel (to South Korea) or not".

His Olympic career took off four years later at the Games in Turin, where he became only the second Korean athlete to win three gold medals at a single Olympics. Halfpipe snowboarder Arielle Gold, who qualified for the Sochi Games but had to withdraw due to injury, is also expected to compete.

In addition to receiving life bans, all the athletes sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee were stripped of their Sochi records, which were rendered void by the body.

The French Olympic Committee also revealed on Thursday that the final nine athletes in alpine skiing will be announced on Sunday, bringing the total number of French athletes at the quadrennial event to 108 this year, compared with 114 in Sochi.

The ROC included 500 athletes into the Olympic application which was sent to the IOC last week.

Russian Olympic Committee vice-president Stanislav Pozdnyakov said on Thursday: "At the moment, together with the national and global federations, an application of OAR athletes was approved for 169 athletes".

Donald Trump seeks 'constitutional option' to end govt shutdown
The nuclear option would involve changing Senate rules to allow legislation to pass with a simple majority instead of 60 votes. The government shutdown has begun. "We look forward to taking your calls as soon as the government re-opens", it said.

An independent review panel drew up a list of Russian athletes, invited to compete as independents, after carefully examining their doping records and testing history, possible involvement in the scandal and other factors.

With the Games set to get underway in Pyeongchang in two weeks time, the first time the Winter Olympics have been held in Korea, storylines have been gaining steam in recent months.

A team of 169 athletes would have been the fourth largest delegation in Sochi, trailing only Canada, the United States and Russian Federation.

Short-track speed skater Viktor Ahn and biathlete Anton Shipulin were both excluded, as well as pairs skater Ksenia Stolbova and ice dancer Ivan Bukin.

Christie has won a plethora of World and European Championship medals, and now has the opportunity to put her name up in lights on the world stage once her events get underway.

With just around a week to go until the PyeongChang Winter Games, it's time to introduce the most incredible female athletes taking part in the games. "We are really hoping for a fair decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport".
