World Curling Federation position on anti-doping rule violation

This incident has cast a shadow over our sport and the amazing Mixed Doubles Curling competition that had its debut here at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

We support the decision that has been reached by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), regarding the anti-doping rule violation by the Olympic Athlete from Russia, Aleksandr Krushelnitckii. We do not tolerate doping in our sport. We now await CAS's decision on any post-Games sanction.

Our congratulations to the Norwegian team - Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten - who will receive their Olympic Winter Games bronze medals in due course.
