The impact of this is hardly comprehensible for russian sport.
On the olympics they were good for 1010 Medals.
Only US of A has more.

While true, this somewhat minimizes the state directed cheating that's been going on (and by all WADA reports continues to go on) in Russia for decades. Those bravehearted yachtsmen will no doubt be relieved to sail under a flag not tainted by systemic unsportsmanlike behavior.

While on the water, these fellow yachtsmen are not even in the position nor opportunity to do anything about doping scandals in the USSR.

Can't they just take the steroids after sailing for the day or on rest days like everybody else?  :p
Name one yachtsmen that was in a doping scandal..
Google didn't give a single incident.
ISAF should overrule the ban, just to show justice.
What has sailing tyo do with atlethes on steroids? Nothing..

But there were a few who chose not to turn up at Olympic trials before out of competition testing became the norm

It doesn't matter, its a blanket ban.  That's what happens when the cheating and the cover-up is so endemic.............and just because they weren't named, doesn't mean they're innocent.
Not guilty until proven otherwise.

Name one..
Isaf should overrule the ban for sailing. The russian will appreciate when we are lenient.
To acknowledge each others country in sport is sportmanship and will at least prevent war a little bit.

Couldn't agree with you more. Endemic is the right word here. The blanket ban is meant to discourage all forms of cheating.

That could work if they, the athletes, would try to get someone else than RUSAD to do their testing. With proper laboratories and test without prior knowledge.

Untrue; they, the russians, are on Voile the st. Tropez, Dragon Gold race, Medemblik, World championships. RC44 tournaments.
They are going to be missed.

Gazprom is their national oilcompany that sponsors them.

That would be an improvement. Stop using the shit in the first place might work as well.

State sponsored cheating!

Chuck the lot of 'em!

My bro represented Auustralia in Kayaking at Lake Casitas (nice place) in 1984, pre drug testing, extremely fit, drug free and weighing about 80 kgs (convert it yourself)

The finalists in the 1984 500K1, mostly Eastern Europeans, averaged 92kgs (CIY)

Post drug testing ie 1984 that number fell quite quickly to 82kgs.

I have another story from inside the village in 1984 which will amaze you if you want to hear it.

Goodnight

For anyone who's interested, this Netflix documentary was an excellent look into Russian doping. Starts out as an American's experiment, and turns into the expose that helped get to where we are today.  And once again, all roads lead to Putin...
