One can only imagine the feelings of a disqualified athlete, who has "trained for half his life for such Games", said Henrich, who now trains in Russian Federation.

Russell, victor of a gold medal in the 4x100 metres relay at the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in Moscow in 2013, will make her first Winter Olympic appearance at Pyeongchang 2018.

Andrew Cullis, Toyota GB marketing director said: "We're really excited to be partnering with the Ambition Programme".

Kolobkov added that Russia may organise alternative sports competitions for Russian athletes barred from the Games. "That means that topics such as doping in the German Bundesliga (the country's top football league), doping in cycling, doping by Kenyan runners or in China and the USA are not being talked about at all in the past few years", Henrich said. Their last gold was the famous 1980 games.

The 27-year-old believes he is in contention to win a medal. The 26-year-old, who is also in Aspen for the X Games this weekend, is the world champion in big air and now leads in the FIS Snowboard World Cup.

"It's something I have to deal with, and I braced myself for this ever since I first got my Russian passport".

"She needs to take as much as possible from the experience and try not to forget anything".

While Katie has toiled with injuries, Molly has struggled on without any funding - indeed just hours after collecting her Olympic kit in Stockport, she was back working the late shift in the McDonalds in Drake House retail park.

With seven medals in only five Olympic Games, Canada is one of the top snowboarding nations in the world.
