Russia will miss the Tokyo Olympic Games and Beijing Winter Olympic Games as the Court of Arbitration for Sport imposed a two-year ban on the country on Thursday.

LAUSANNE, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Russia will miss the Tokyo Olympic Games and Beijing Winter Olympic Games as the Court of Arbitration for Sport imposed a two-year ban on the country on Thursday.

The final decision from CAS was a result of a secret arbitration hearing between WADA and the Russian Anti-Doping Agency last month.

Russians will still be allowed to compete at the international tournaments, but only as neutrals.
