MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. South Korea’s skeleton team will boycott the 2017 World Bobsleigh and Skeleton Championships in Russia’s Sochi, the Yonhap news agency reported on Tuesday.
The move comes in response to Friday’s publication of Part 2 of the report of the WADA Independent Commission led by Richard McLaren that accused Russia of doping cover-up schemes at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Russia’s team finished on top of the overall medal count with 33 medals.
An official with the Korea Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation (KBSF) said no decision has yet been made on the bobsleigh team’s participation in the championships.
Latvia’s skeleton team said Sunday it would boycott the Sochi championship due to be held on February 13-26. Russian Bobsleigh Federation (RBF) President Alexander Zubkov later told TASS the absence of Latvia’s team would not be a problem and other countries would fight for the medals.
