Olympics chief Thomas Bach called for reforms to the Court of Arbitration for Sport Sunday as he slammed its "extremely disappointing" decision to lift life bans for doping imposed on 28 Russian athletes.Although Russia has been banned from the Games following the discovery of a wide-ranging doping conspiracy, 169 athletes are due to compete under a neutral flag as "Olympic Athletes from Russia".Bach said an IOC panel would announce in the "next couple of days" whether 15 of the now-reinstated Russians – 13 athletes and two coaches – would be invited to take part in Pyeongchang.The IOC's disciplinary commission banned 43 Russian athletes for life and disqualified all Russians from competing at the Pyeongchang Games over a state-sponsored doping conspiracy.
