Reuters was ahead of the competition in reporting Russian medalist Alexander Krushelnitsky is suspected of having tested positive for a banned substance at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Krushelnitsky, a bronze-medalist along with his wife in mixed-doubles curling, is suspected of having tested positive for meldonium, which increases blood flow, improving exercise capacity in athletes. Reuters also caught up with Thomas Ulsrud, the skipper of the Norwegian team denied bronze, who spoke of his disappointment for his teammates who had already left for home.
