Russia is banned from the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. Russia made history in the 2018 Olympic Games without even winning a medal. They are the first country to be banned from the 2018 Olympics. The IOC decided after confirming that Russian athletes were accused of doping their urine sample tests. These accusation were build on a damning over-the-top 100-page report by the Richard McLaren, where he revealed the extent of the state-sponsored doping chain in Russia after months of investigations. Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet leader lauded in the West, called the decision “outrageous”.
Problem is…Cheating is not a new scandal for the Russian Athletes, seems there is a long history of inappropriate behavior and cheating. Because DOPING in Russian sports has a systemic nature. This country has had more than 49 Olympic medals stripped from its athletes because of doping violations. The president of the International Biathlon Union, Anders Besseberg, said, “We are facing systematic doping on a large scale in one of the strongest teams of the world.
Was the IOC too harsh? The fact that no athlete can compete under the Russian flag, no anthem can be played, no Russian outfits, not even Russian vodka would be hip in these games! Does this further isolate Russia from the world community? Is politics in play here? What kind of proof do they have? Co-host Susan Price takes a strong position on this one, so much that Co-hosts Yvette Taylor and Taz Thornton backed her up completely. They smell a rat – and it’s not Malcolm this time!
