Which country was banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics?
– South Korea
Answer: Russia’s Olympic team has been barred from the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The country’s government officials are forbidden to attend, its flag will not be displayed at the opening ceremony and its anthem will not sound. Russian athletes can still compete, but it will be under the Olympic flag. Any athletes from Russia that compete will do so as individuals wearing a neutral uniform, and the official record books will forever show that Russia won zero medals. The decision comes after a widespread doping program in Russia.
