An IOC panel whittled down an initial list of 500 to create what the IOC calls "a pool of clean athletes".It wasn't immediately clear why 111 other Russians were rejected by the IOC. The IOC didn't list the athletes who were accepted or rejected, but said it hadn't included any of the 43 the IOC previously banned for doping at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.The IOC has allowed Russian Olympic Committee to select its preferred athletes despite being suspended by the IOC last month over drug use and an elaborate cover-up at the 2014 Olympics, including swapping dirty samples for clean urine.
