3:08 pm
well the winter olympics have drawn to an end with a colorful closing ceremony and there have been some incredible events at these games but the low points as well joining me to discuss this all is jonathan crane fall our sports desk jonathan at the athletes have been parading and dancing around in the pic and the big stadium but then there was a last minute decision and a change of heart it seems and the a it was no russians like why did the i.o.c. do that i think there was some degree of nervousness among some i.o.c. members to lift russians there at the closing ceremony so in the end the decision was unanimous to keep it in place for now at least now this of course is because of the state sponsored doping scandal that was uncovered at such a four years ago as a result we've had one hundred sixty eight russian athletes competing at these games as neutrals on the via lympics lack there was always this carrot dangling in front of them this far stretch read statement effectively that if you behave
3:09 pm
yourself if you abide by the rules then we would reinstate you but unfortunately a cheap positive doping tests have really stuck to russia for now which is why i think we had the decision but crucially. if there are no more violations then russia will be reinstated and that's bad news really for people who are advocating clean sport because they believe it sends out the wrong message that this is happening far too quickly russia has been pulled back in from the cold too quickly in their view ok well for the athletes themselves i'm sure it's very devastating especially for the clean ones and especially for any of those athletes coming back to russia with a gold medal like the men's hockey team tell us about their achievement it was an incredible hockey final between the athletes in russia and germany now a very dramatic this is with fifty five seconds to go tying the game russia germany so close to the gold medal then we had this foul their high stick so that lets

3:11 pm
incredible performance and she also significantly how turco entry in the overall medal now let's take a look at the medals any big surprises yes surprises disappointments didn't i think . maybe slight disappointment for germany because that four man bobsled they had one gold and then that put them top of the medal table temporarily then mary bugan comes along and you see that norway on top thirty nine medals in total for them that's in a limb pick record incredible incredible formants great games for germany as well. and they called in sochi united states down in fourth disappointing for them and that's their lowest medal who are in twenty years and as we can see there are notable absence he of course russia they top the medal table and so she was thirteen goals and there was you know now most of them tainted by doping all right jonathan crane thank you very much for the out with. well the curtain is that to come down on the twenty bring out a film festival after
