The IOC did not name the athletes, but Russian officials have said they include two gold-medal winners from the 2014 Sochi Olympics - cross-country skier Alexander Legkov and skeleton racer Alexander Tretiakov. John Coates, who heads the court, says decisions on some appeals are expected Wednesday. And then, what happened in the end, the athletes met in the tunnel to march in, they took each other by the hands and marched in to the stadium, and this is the Olympic Games.
The games in the South Korean city of Pyeongchang will start on Friday and last through February 25.
The Pyeongchang Winter Olympics open in two days, but the issue of which Russians are in - and which are out - is dominating the agenda of IOC President Thomas Bach.
The battle to compete may not be over even if the court upholds the appeals.
