How will the exclusion of Russia affect the lineup at Olympics?

Recommended Posts

Mods, if you think the topic is too hot, just delete it.

 

Well, sad news: Russia as a country has been excluded from the 2018 Olympic Games. The athletes will be allowed to compete under the neutral flag as "Olympic Athletes from Russia".

 

The big question is, will they though? Will all of them give it a pass? Will some of them choose to go?  If they do choose to go, what rules will apply to who can compete, will "Olympic Athletes from Russia" inherit Russia's slots or will they be treated as a new country with one skater allowed? Something else entirely? 

 

If they choose not to go, which seems very likely, will their slots be redistributed to skaters from other countries? Is there an alternate list?

We're already talking about this in Team Russia so you can join us there, not to split the discussion into two parts!
