In December 2017, the International Olympic Committee concluded that two Russian lugers, Albert Demchenko and Tatyana Ivanova, had committed an anti-doping violation and stripped Russia of two silver medals from Sochi 2014
In February 2018, both athletes successfully appealed against the IOC decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport and both medals were returned to Russia.
Ivanova had her team relay silver medal reinstated, while Demchenko was able to keep his men's singles and team relay silvers.
