The IOC has just barred the 2018 Russian Winter Olympic Team from the upcoming games in South Korea for systematic doping infractions. However, individual athletes and teams who were not involved in doping infractions can compete under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russia" or OAR. They will march in under the Olympic flag and, if they win any gold medals, the Olympic anthem will be played. The Russian Olympic Committee's entire membership has been suspended as well.

It's not clear how many Russian athletes will compete, since they will have to undergo strict anti-doping scrutiny before being allowed in, and Russia may boycott the games entirely.

They cheated, they didn't die.

They're not dead, but the team as a competing entity is. Thus, the wording "team" instead of "athletes."

According to your post, they're suspended, not dead.

So you think they will be resting in Heaven, Hell or "?" until the next Olympics? How will they get back?
