PYEONGCHANG (South Korea): Russian athletes marched behind a neutral flag at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics opening ceremony on Friday, after Russia’s team was suspended over a doping scandal.
A South Korean volunteer worker at the Olympics carried the Olympic flag, in front of a group of athletes wearing long grey coats and white hats.
The “Olympic Athletes from Russia” number 168, the fourth biggest team, despite Russia’s suspension from the Games after the revelation of systemic doping.
