Kiril Kaprizov's power-play goal 9 minutes, 40 seconds into overtime gave the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation team the gold medal in men's hockey Sunday with a 4-3 victory over Germany.
As the Olympic anthem played for their medal ceremony, the players joined hundreds of spectators in belting out the Russian anthem. Let's not forget Russian Federation - or, we should say, "Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation", the shame-laced moniker they inherited after a doping brouhaha from the 2014 Sochi Games doomed them to a non-flag-carrying Pyeongchang Games.
On Sunday, the International Olympic Committee rejected a late appeal from Russian Federation to be reinstated prior to the close of the PyeongChang Games after being banned for a doping scandal in Sochi. Russia's national emblems were prohibited from being displayed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which disqualified Russian Federation from the 2018 Winter Olympics for alleged doping violations. The fans drowned out the Olympic anthem with the singing of their own Russian anthem, and the players followed suit.
