The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled Thursday that Russia won’t be able to use its name, flag or anthem at the next two Olympics or at any world championships for the next two years.

However, that’s half of the four-year ban proposed by the World Anti-Doping Agency in a case that accused Russia of tampering of a testing lab database.

Russian athletes and teams will still be allowed to compete at next year’s Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, as well as in world championships.
