Russia Banned for Olympics!

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Russia has been banned from the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics after evidence emerged of widespread doping but some of its athletes will be allowed to compete under the tag of "Olympic Athlete of Russia," the IOC said on Tuesday.

The International Olympic Committee also decided to suspend Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) president Alexander Zhukov as an IOC member given that his membership is linked to his position as chief of the ROC who have been suspended from the Games.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko was also banned from any future participation at the Olympic Games.

The IOC told a news conference that the Schmid report confirmed "the systematic manipulation of the anti-doping rules and system in Russia."

Poor Russia. They poured all of that money into their doping regime, in an effort to try and Make Russia Great (at sports) Again, and look how it ended up for them!

When an athlete competes under the "neutral" flag they compete as an independent and they don't represent any country. They compete representing themselves, hence being an independent

With the Russians out of the figure-skating competition, does that mean that Ashley Wagner will finally win an Olympic medal higher than bronze?

She's probably hyper-ventilating right now.

Putin will probably kill any athlete who dares compete as "neutral."

Alternatively, he will force everyone to compete as neutral and just pretend they're competing for Russia. They can always Photoshop the uniforms for their propaganda newspapers.

by Anonymousreply 4912/05/2017

R47, --- R41 said the main contender in the ladies event won't compete as an independent - so they are in fact out.

I just wondered if Wagner will still be throttled by the Koreans, Japanese and Chinese, or if the poor gal now stands a chance.

Exactly they did the same thing in 1992 with the "unified" team

Yeah, but they weren't banned for doping in 1992..

Sad - the Russian trannies were ready to sweep the ladies' competitions in all categories.

Ashley Wagner said "I'm not a quitter" last week....right after she quit at a Grand Prix event. She's worse than Gracie Gold and will come home empty handed.....and empty headed, as usual.

I actually liked both Gracie Gold and Sasha Cohen. Sure, they fucked up their jumps and landed on their assess a lot, but they had a nice style. Cohen was like a ballerina and Gold was a living Barbie doll.

R46, no American Lady is likely to medal even without Russia. Japan, Catelyn Osmond (Canada) and Carolina Kostner (Italy) are the most likely beneficiaries. The highest ranked American woman this season is 12th internationally--Bradie Tennell and, no, you've never heard of her.

It's not even clear, at this point, if Ashley will get on the team, let alone medal.

Unfortunately the use of drugs extends far beyond Russia. You want to ban Russia, then ban China and the US and a host of other nations that are also approving or looking the other way on drug use.

Do you imagine for one second that the Olympic committee hasn't been looking at all the major nations? The problem with the massive Russian doping operation has been public knowledge for a long time. All nations are not the same, and Russia is by far the worst offender.

Russians don't care about lying, cheating and stealing. In their country, these actions are seen as noble. It doesn't matter if it's politics or sports, as long as they "win." They have no "right or wrong" conscience.

Their stateless, basically. Nothing they do reflects on Russia, and they have to get some sort of special dispensation from the Olympic committee to compete. It's not like the Russian team just shows up like normal.

Russia was banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics. However, the IOC said athletes who could prove they weren’t doping could compete as “Olympic Athletes from Russia,” or OAR. So there are 150 Russian athletes competing this year. They marched in grey under the IOC flag.
