The announcement comes following hearings by an International Olympic Committee commission into allegations of state-sponsored doping by hosts Russian Federation at the 2014 Winter Games.

Even though Russian Federation is banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics as a result of an alleged state-backed doping program, which helped hide test results from hundreds of athletes using performance-enhancing drugs, the International Olympic Committee said that some of the country's athletes may receive "special dispensation" to compete.

It will be Canada's first Olympic luge medal.

The others include bobsledders, speed skaters and ice hockey players.

The results of the athletes will be annuled, and those who won medals will have them stripped.

"Sixty-two percent of Russians support the participation of Russian athletes allowed to compete under a neutral flag, while half as many, 33 percent, do not agree with this".

Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of Russians support the decision of the country's athletes to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea's Pyeongchang under a neutral flag, a fresh poll by VTsIOM pollster showed on Friday.

The International Olympic Committee ruled Friday on the last 11 of 46 current doping cases and says all have been disqualified from the Sochi Games and banned from the Olympics for life.

"All 46 of them have been handled, of which three have been filed".

The Oswald Commission grew out of the McLaren Report, which was commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in 2016 and which led to many Russians being barred from competing in that year's Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
