Russian skiers Maxim Vylegzhanin, Alexander Legkov and Nikita Kryukov mentioned in the report of the McLaren about the doping.

All three athletes are suspected of tampering with the doping tests at the Olympic games in Sochi in 2014, according to Swedish newspaper Expressen.

If the Russian team is found guilty, it will be completely disqualified and will not compete at the world championship in the Finnish Lahti, which starts on 22 February.

We will remind that on games in Sochi Alexander Legkov became the Olympic champion in the marathon and won a silver medal in the relay. Maxim Vylegzhanin brought home from Sochi with three silver medals in the marathon, relay and team sprint, where he ran together with Nikita Kryukov.

Thus, the Russian team will lose 4 medals won in Sochi, one of which is gold.
