Russia banned from 2018 Olympics for widespread doping program

Quote:
The International Olympic Committee banned the Russian Federation from the upcoming Winter Olympics on Tuesday but left the door open for individual Russian athletes to compete. In a historic act of punishment, Russia’s flag and anthem will be absent from February’s PyeongChang Games in South Korea as consequence for widespread doping that Olympic officials believe was supported by the country’s government.

Russia’s doping program “represents an unprecedented attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games,” IOC President Thomas Bach said following Tuesday’s announcement.

Huge implications for Hockey, since the KHL already threatened to prevent its players from playing in the tournament if Russia was banned. So now there'll be no players from the NHL or KHL competing, unless KHL players void their contracts with the KHL so they can play. Russia was the clear favorite to win Gold and now will not have a team. Look for USA and Canada teams consisting mostly of college and junior players.

Russia could still compete as a team under the Olympic Flag like a lot of the other athletes are going to do, but there's no way Putin is letting that happen. This is all very embarrassing for Russia,yet they've taken no responsibility for any of the doping problems they've had and blame it all on the IOC and "the West". Will probably be doping again and get banned for 2020 in Japan. Total morons

Watched Icarus last night; awesome doc. Grigory is one hell of an interesting dude. Hope he's OK and his family can come to the US at some point.

I hadn't even thought about the upcoming Olympics until I saw this. Can't say that I'm surprised the Rooskies are doping. I am surprised the IOC acted upon it.

I always knew the Rooskies we're juicing that's half the challenge of beating them.
