    The ban on Russia' s track team has been upheld. There are threats of legal action though.

    **** Russia.

    I'm amazed the IOC didn't capitulate actually. Was quite looking forward to personally boycotting the games in protest.

    Hard to be happy about it tbh.

    Every chinese weightlifter is doping. Every American and Jamaican sprinter is doping. They're just smarter about it.

    So a British cyclist (Lizzie Armitstead) misses three tests and gets away with it on a technicality. I doubt that she's taken any drugs, but should still be banned.

    Yep

    It's an offence and it will simply fuel the conspiracy theories

    Sensible (and consistent) thing would have been to ban her

    Will there be an uproar from the righteous indignation lobby? I mean sure we are all upset that people cheat, but the way some have put them,selves on a podium to wag fingers about

    Someone else could capitulate for them

    I don't doubt that many Russians are doping but it is sad to see sports being politicized. Americans are just as bad as anyone else in doping. Read this if you don't believe me:

    That article relates to historic doping claims.

    An Ethiopian runner won gold in the 10000 metres, breaking the world record by 14 seconds in the process

    It was only the second time she had run the distance, the world record had stood since 1993 and was set by a notorious doper

    Paula Radclife summed it up: "I'm finding it difficult to understand ...."

    That's definitely doable if you're used to running far longer distances at a decent pace.

    When you're in training for marathons then a 10k is basically a short sprint.

    I won't be surprised if they find the track is actually only 380 metres/lap. But yeah, crazy fast time that would have broken the 5000m world record ad well

    She got 3rd in the 5k race though. Pushed too early.

    (Plus I can't really blame anyone for using mildly dirty tricks to get out of Ethiopia)

    Remember when well known former CW member dhonisgland said his dad took the family to Sudan from India for a better life? It's a similar sort of thing I guess.

    LOL! Radcliffe was hardly clean herself. A bit of pot calling the kettle black there.

    There are two sets of rules at play here. One for Western Athletes and another for Russians :-)
