This comes after the country’s troubled Olympic Committee refused to make changes to its constitution. The IOC said it would discuss the matter at its executive board meeting in Pyeongchang South Korea next week to decide on any further action.



The IOC wants a series of new regulations addressing issues of good governance within the country’ Olympic committee which has been marred by issues on doping, mismanagement and political pressure.
