The Russian Olympic Committee continues the work to have Russian athletes with positive doping probes return Olympic medals, the Committee's President Alexander Zhukov told reporters on February 11.

Mariya Savinova has been banned from athletics until 2019 after she was found guilty of doping for over three years.

It took the action as the decision-making authority while Russia's athletics federation remains banned over the country's state-backed doping scandal.

Savinova-Farnosova, 31, won the 800-meter title ahead of South Africa's Caster Semenya. "That is our system and in Russian Federation that only works only with pharma", she said, according to a transcript produced by WADA. All these (investigations) continued for more than two years and we're all exhausted of it.
