In suspending Russia's team, Olympic officials left the door open for some n athletes to compete.
Russian officials reacted to the decision by attacking it as unfair.
Russia's Olympic Committee has been ordered to reimburse the IOC's costs of investigating the doping scandal and it must also pay $15 million. Russian President Vladimir Putin has called the doping charges against Russia "a risky return to this policy of letting politics interfere with sport". More than two dozen Russian athletes have been disqualified from the Sochi standings as a result, and Olympic officials are still sorting through the tainted results and rescinding medals.
Meanwhile the credibility of the Russian whistleblower Grigory Rodchenkov, who ran the Moscow anti-doping laboratory before fleeing past year and revealing what he knew to McLaren, was recently enhanced by the Oswald commission, who confirmed that he was a "truthful witness".
The report by IOC-appointed investigator Samuel Schmid, the former president of Switzerland who was asked to verify an "institutional conspiracy", included a 50-page sworn affidavit from Rodchenkov, who was also a key witness for McLaren and an International Olympic Committee disciplinary commission. Individual cases are being looked at by the Disciplinary Commission, chaired by Denis Oswald, a Swiss lawyer and former International Olympic Committee executive board member. The sanctions have knocked Russian Federation down to fourth place in the medals table after finishing first in 2014 with 33 medals.
The IOC has also been declaring sanctioned athletes to be ineligible for future Olympics as it strips them of their victories - an approach that has promised to reshape the field for the upcoming 2018 PyeongChang games in South Korea.
