It became known why the biathlete Anton Shipulin and short tracker Victor An were not admitted to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
Shipulin and An are accused of violating anti-doping rules, reports Le Monde.
A source close to the investigation of Richard McLaren told the French edition that the drowning tests of Shipulin and Ana, taken during the Sochi 2014 Games, have traces of the autopsy.
The Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) follows the instruction according to which only athletes who do not have violations in the anti-doping rules are allowed.
Previously, the legendary ice hockey player Boris Mikhailov said that the IOC does not explain the reasons for its decisions.
