IOC lays the ban hammer on Russia for 2018 Winter Olympics.

Recommended Posts

Well, considering that the Dutch cycling teams were all banned from the Tour de France a few years back simply for being from the doping capital of the free world, and the husband/coach of an Irish swimmer during the Atlanta or Sydney games made the startling defense that doping was the only fair way to compensate less physically gifted athletes competing against unfairly gifted competitors (kind of the way PHRF rating committees think) , I doubt much will change except that the Russians, who are a very clever people, will just find new ways to hide the evidence.

"ban hammer"? Strange way to view the minimal action the IoC has been forced to enact with one arm twisted up its back. Lets see how long it sticks.

Pretty sure Putin does not really give a shit what the IOC do. His minion charged with getting Russians to sporting competition may be bothered when he has to explain this to his uncaring boss.
