from austin thanks for joining us. but the one thing we didn't see a week at the closing ceremony was the russian flag why was that that's because the just the i.c. voted today to uphold the ban russians and then paid no of course that stemmed from state sponsored doping that was uncovered at the sochi olympics in twenty fourteen a unanimous decision we can see that a show of hands at the i.o.c. meeting now that resulted in the kind of political compromise this one hundred sixty eight russian athletes were competing as neutrals at these games under the olympic track but there was always this carrot dangling for them at the end whether they would actually be able to have their own flag closing ceremony now whether the whispers were positive that the russian athletes were behaving themselves abiding by the ban and then of course we had to doping violations towards the end of the games by russian athletes so i think that's really why the i.o.c.
changed tack but if we don't see any more violations it's probably unlikely now with the games pretty much over then the russian reinstatement will happen and that won't please people for who are for clean sport because they say that this is happened very quickly and it sends out the wrong message so the focus seems to be on russian affiliates especially on the final day they did manage to taint a gold medal in the men's hockey how did that go if they did a string hockey final and even the olympic athletes in russia second gold of these games way down on sort she we can see here germany were just fifty five seconds away from the gold medal when that happened and the equaliser three apiece which led to some overtime and then there was the stepparent actually run over the high stick and on the power play russia breaking german hearts it been such a brilliant tournament really. they settle now for the silver medal still much better than they had done in previous attempts in fact the previous best was a bronze medal as west germany in one nine hundred seventy six but it's the
russians to celebrate they were actually singing their own anthem over the olympics out of the million said she was that's right i don't think i see will be too happy about that because if a russian this is a win a gold medal i have to tell you i witnessed the heartbreak from german fans been there watching this match but certainly not the same news in the bobsled is it yes by then using the pope's lay this is the four man bobsled germany really getting amongst the matter was here the first team down we can see that led by a knicker vall so they traditionally when since the leads lots of support there lots of time support because then the south koreans went down i really doubt she is for them and they actually surprise the times it was a dead heat both teams traditionally in gold medals and then the team of the german team piloted by francesco frees rick crossing the line more than a half a second ahead so gold and silver for germany and that reason it was enough to put
them at the top of the medal sable ok jonathan crane thank you so much for that update and of course more will be coming to you at the top of the hour with my colleague o'donnell but for me it of kimani good bye and thank you for watching. your sport t.v. even smarter d.w. course want to see. what you want when you want it up to date extraordinary. to decide what's on find out more like a dot com smart t.v. . they make a commitment. they find solutions. date and stronger.
