The president of the Kontinental Hockey League says he is waiting to find out how many Russians will be banned from the Pyeongchang Olympics before deciding if he will allow his players to compete in South Korea.
Russia's effort to rig the 2014 Winter Olympics – a scheme for which the International Olympic Committee last week banned it from the 2018 Winter Games – bears a striking resemblance to its effort to rig the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The United States and Canada have dominated since women's hockey was added to the Winter Olympics in 1998. But now China is investing in the sport, and Finland believes it has the best chance to pull off an upset at the 2018 Games in February.
U.S. Olympic leaders acknowledged Friday they were caught off-guard when government officials commented about potentially skipping the upcoming 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, because of security concerns.
