A Russian curler is suspected to have tested positive for a banned substance at the PyeongChang Olympics, according to multiple reports.
The Russians, who are competing at the Pyeongchang Games as neutral athletes and under the Olympic flag because of a vast doping scheme at the 2014 Sochi Games, said Tuesday they want to open a criminal investigation to find out who could have caused this positive result.
That argument will not hold for Krushelnytsky should his "B" sample also test positive for Meldonium, also known as Mildronite, with the substance having remained on the WADA banned list for some 25 months since it was outlawed.
The Russians were hoping that the IOC would rule this week that they could march in the closing ceremonies under their own flag, and be readmitted to the worldwide sports community.
The World Anti-Doping Agency banned meldonium with effect from January 2016, deeming it performance-enhancing because it enabled users to carry more oxygen to muscle tissue, something of benefit to endurance athletes in particular.
But CAS revealed on Monday that, in response to a request from the International Olympic Committee, it has registered a new procedure involving Krushelnitckii.
Further to a request from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the CAS ADD has initiated a procedure involving the athlete Aleksandr Krushelnitckii (mixed curling; OAR).
Russian Federation were banned as a team from the Olympics in December after investigations revealed an extensive doping plot culminating at the Sochi 2014 Winter Games, where the hosts topped the medals table.

The date for said hearing has not been set.
The IOC has said Russian Federation could be reinstated for the closing ceremony if it follows IOC rules, including anti-doping regulations.
"I think most people will laugh and ask, 'What could you possibly need doping for?' as I am thinking", said Madeleine Dupont, skip for the Denmark rink.
He knows one takes care of the other. "But my game is in good shape; I'm hitting it beautifully and driving it awesome". Cantlay, who shared the overnight lead with Tony Finau, had five birdies in his two-under par 69.
