Russia to continue legal measures to fight Olympic bans: Kremlin

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow will continue taking legal measures to defend the Russian athletes banned from the Olympics by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said earlier on Thursday it had upheld appeals from 28 of 39 Russian athletes who were given lifetime Olympic bans for alleged doping violations at the 2014 Sochi Games.
