Court of Arbitration for Sport satisfied appeals of 28 Russian atheletes and annulled their life ban from the Olympic Games.

The procedures were conducted jointly on an expedited basis and a combined hearing took place from 22 to 27 January in Geneva.

Eleven other athletes were confirmed by CAS to have committed doping violations.
