Cas ruled there was "insufficient" evidence that the athletes had benefited from a system of state-sponsored doping at the 2014 Winter Games, hosted by Russian Federation.

He said the International Olympic Committee knew only what had been released by CAS in a press statement and this was "extremely unsatisfactory given the gravity of the cases".

There will be Russian athletes in Pyeongchang, competing under the Olympic flag and with the Olympic anthem played. So far the panel was not able to produce a reasoned decision, which we are eagerly waiting for.

Appeals by six Russian athletes against their barring from next week's Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang have been dismissed by the Swiss Civil Courts, the Insidethegames portal said on Saturday referring to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

"I want to make it clear that absence of sanction by CAS does not mean you are entitled to receive invitation by the IOC", Bach said. He hopes a final decision will be made "in the next couple of days".

More than 50 cross-country skiers set to race at the Games have returned suspicious blood data at least once in their careers, according to The Sunday Times in London and German broadcaster ARD.

"The IOC executive board is deeply shocked and saddened by the abuse scandal in the U.S. Gymnastics Federation", Bach said, reading a declaration of the board that included an expression of "its moral support for the victims and applauded the courage of the victims who gave testimony". Bach said in December that the medals these athletes had received would be reallocated to other athletes during the upcoming Pyeongchang games.

But when pressed about having allowed Nassar to attend multiple Olympic Games as a team doctor, Bach immediately deflected any criticism of the IOC to the USOC.
