If I recall there is no actual team champion in an Olympic year.  You can add up the points for fun, but the IOC doesn’t recognize anything.  If the unofficially points say the US would have won if scores then I guess you can say that, but it’s bit getting officially recognized.

Shouldn't Russia have more points?

Dzhamal Otarsultanov 1st 10 points

Besik Kudukhov 2nd 9 points

Denis Tsargush 3rd 8 points

Anzor Urishev 8th 3 points

Abdusalam Gadisov 9th 2 points

Bilyal Makhov 3rd? 8 points

That's 40, but Makhov should move up to 2nd or 1st.  Which would give them 41 or 42. So unofficial co-team champs until the IOC announces Makhov new medal?

As MadMardigain posted, there is no official team champ for the Olympics, so you'll wait a long time for the IOC to overturn something that doesn't exist.

In the Rudis podcast today Askren and Yianni both mentioned how Kudukhov was outspoken against PEDs and refused to do it.  It would seem that if he were still alive he would have disputed the allegations.  They didn't test his B sample either, so I wouldn't assume he is guilty and discount his points from a unofficial team ranking.

Discussion on PEDs occurs around 12:00
