Olympians from Russia during the medal ceremony, when they received the gold rings of the Olympics in PyeongChang won in ice hockey, sang their national anthem. Due to the suspension of the national Olympic Committee, it was not played during the ceremony.

After the detection of institutionalized doping during the Sochi 2014 games at the host of the event, the Russian Olympic Committee was suspended in the IOC member rights. All athletes from this country were allowed to take off in South Korea as Olympians from Russia. During the opening ceremony on February 9, an Olympic flag was carried in front of them and a condition was stipulated that after winning the gold medal by one of them, the Russian national anthem would not be played.

They broke the rule of the IOC

Hockey players, standing on the highest level of the podium on Sunday, were playing the Olympic anthem, but the players sang at that time Russian, thus breaking the principle of the IOC regarding neutrality. In the final Olympians from Russia defeated Germans 4: 3 after extra time.

A few hours earlier the IOC Executive Committee decided that it would not allow Sborna’s representatives to march under the Russian flag during the Sunday closing ceremony.

Ilya Kovalchuk admitted that he and his colleagues had talked about whether to sing their hymn in case of victory before the match.

– We knew what we were going to do – said the almost 35-year-old player, who has scored the most in the history of goals in the Olympic struggle among the Russians.

Putin praised

This is the first gold medal of the Russian team hockey in the games since 1992. In Albertville she triumphed under the banner of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States).

– That means a lot. It’s been a long time since our previous success. It was our dream. I dreamed about it since I was five years old when I started doing this sport. It’s a great feeling – emphasized Kowalczuk.

The way to Olympic gold was not easy. This success is a beautiful tribute to the Russian school of hockey and a great example for our young athletes – summed up in turn the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.

Bundesliga: Angered Bayern won. Robert Lewandowski finished Borussia

Robert Lewandowski
Bayern Munich won 5: 1 with Borussia M’gladbach on the 30th Bundesliga round. Robert Lewandowski was Sandro Wagner substitute in the 70th minute and Polak scored the last goal.

The Bavarians did not have much time to celebrate the German championships that they guaranteed a week ago, beating FC Augsburg . In the middle of the week Bayern Munich  sealed the promotion to the semi-final of the Champions League , and the next opponent Borussia M’gladbach  was waiting for them on Saturday.

The team from Munich looked like a full-blown schedule for the distracted, and Borussia M’gladbach could punish it. In the 9th minute, Josip Drmić  scored the goal 1: 0. In the penalty area, he had plenty of time to control the ball after passing the second line, then to maneuver Niklas Suele , and finally to hit the target with a dozen or so meters.

Borussia was playing fairly wisely after taking the lead and rarely allowed the favorite to take a shot from within the penalty area. The guests’ defense was broken in the 37th minute, in which Sandro Wagner  used the pass of Thomas Mueller  and put the ball into the net close up. Bayern fell a stone from the heart, he began to play more freely and in the 41st minute he went on the lead 2: 1. Again, Wagner used the application of Mueller from the right wing, jumped passive stopwatches, and ran his hands over Yann Sommer’s  net.

Once the speeding machine from Munich could not be stopped anymore. After the break her lead was increased by Thiago Alcantara  and David Alaba . Particularly powerful Austrian shot from behind the penalty area to the audience had to appeal to the public. It was the 70th minute and the score 4: 1, when Robert Lewandowski came out of the substation on the pitch . The Pole added a 5: 1 goal in the 82nd minute. Lewandowski calmly controlled the ball after Joshua Kimmich’s cross  and tried on the net. The leader of Bundesliga scorer scoring has 27 goals.

Borussia did not remind her of anything at the beginning of the meeting and in the end the rivals only bullied her. There was more drama in this duel, but when Bayern changed from distracted to annoyed, there was nothing to gather from the guests.

Bayern Munich  – Borussia M’gladbach  5: 1 (2: 1)
0: 1 – Josip Drmić 9 ‘
