After Russia was banned from competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics, President Vladimir Putin has no plans to tell his country's athletes to boycott. On Wednesday, Putin said quote "We, without doubt, will not declare a blockade, we will not prevent our Olympians from taking part [in the Games], if one of them wants to take part in a personal capacity." The International Olympic Committee banned Russia after it was determined that the country had engaged in "systemic manipulation" of anti-doping rules. It went on to say that any athletes who can prove they are clean CAN compete under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russia."
