"This was hugely disappointing and, in addition to other considerations, prevented the International Olympic Committee from even considering lifting the suspension for the closing ceremony" on Sunday, Bach said.
"We hope and we very much expect that in the next few days the ROC's membership in the International Olympic Committee will be fully reinstated", ROC was quoted as saying. The IOC doesn't want it to touch Tokyo's Summer Olympics in 2½ years.
It means the 168 athletes competing as Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR) will not be able to march under their country's flag at Sunday's closing ceremony.
Despite the lack of logos and flags, it seemed everyone knew who the "Olympic Athletes from Russia" were.
Now a second athlete from the Olympic Athletes of Russia team (competing instead of the banned Team Russia - complicated, this) at the 2018 Winter Olympics has tested positive for a banned substance.

But while the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation following restrictions on displaying their nationality, two of the team's athletes failed doping tests, including curling bronze medalist Alexander Krushelnitckii, part of a successful mixed doubles team.
The IOC is now mocking those games with their own "404" error page on the official Olympics website.

The IOC made a decision to restore ROC's membership after the Olympics when all doping samples will be checked and there will be no positive samples.
This was the IOC's attempt to "draw a line" under the Russian scandal.
Despite the fact that two Russian Athletes appear to have been caught doping at these winter Olympics, it looks very much that shortly Russia will be back in Olympic competition, she said. The IOC left open the possibility of reinstatement ahead of the closing ceremony if the Russians met a series of criteria, and Russian athletes were allowed to participate under the Olympic flag.
During the decision making process in the IOC Session two members Tricia Smith and Barry Maister raised concerns to lifting the suspension of the ROC even after the positive doping tests.

Bach has defended the right of individual athletes to be judged separately and shied away from collective punishment.
"We think this is a fair and appropriate sanction", Bach said. "It is never going to be business as usual in sport again or in Russian Federation". The Court of Arbitration for Sport said on Saturday that Sergeeva had admitted to an anti-doping violation. "You will have some who will always try to cheat".
"We can not wait until giving the results of the competition until in 10 years time from now". "It's essentially a Korean problem", the official added.
