If Russian Athletes Make it to the Winter Olympics, This Is What They'll Be Wearing

As the doping scandal engulfs more Russian athletes each week, the Olympic team's prospects of participating in the upcoming Winter Games in South Korea next February are wrapped in uncertainty. 

Russian athletes, however, will have their bags packed in case a ruling by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) gives them the green light. If they're allowed to compete in Pyeongchang, this is what they'll be wearing.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.
