Doping case launched against Russian athlete: tribunal

Alexander Krushelnitsky, a bronze-medalist along with his wife in mixed-doubles curling, is suspected of having tested positive for meldonium, the source said.

After Krushelnitsky's "A sample" tested positive, Russian delegation spokesman Konstantin Vybornov said the athlete had surrendered his Games accreditation and left the Olympic village while awaiting the result of a second sample.

International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams says a failed doping test could keep Russia's banned team from marching under the national flag in the closing ceremony on February 25.

Canada PM Justin Trudeau to visit Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat today
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tagged Taj Mahal as "one of the most handsome places" in the visitor's book. This was Trudeau's second visit to the Taj Mahal and he explained why this trip is special to him.

He echoed a general bewilderment among curling athletes who couldn't fathom why anyone would use drugs that aid endurance in a sport that needs steady hands and concentration rather than peak physical fitness.

"And I don't believe a young man chooses risk or will use the same drug that has been around for two years".

"I would never believe someone on our team would do that", said women's curling captain Victoria Moiseeva, adding: "I can't imagine how he and his wife feel".

Krushelnitsky and his wife, Anastasia Bryzgalova, won bronze in a game against Norway, which would take that medal if a doping violation were to be confirmed.

They finished the PyeongChang games with a 4-3 record.

"I think we would very much stick by that decision that athletes should not be judged as a group but we should find a way to rigorously test them and provide a route for clean athletes to compete".
