They are banned from the 2016 Olympics. I do think the IOC is doing this more as a warning to other nations. I would not be shocked if we found out American track amd field athletes were doing this. I would not be shocked if it did come down to US amd Russia for.elimination.
Isn’t China and Russia violations even worse in gymnastics?
Why can’t people compete with honor? What honor is there winning a gold medal of you are doped up on performance enhancing drugs? You did not win the medal the drugs did. You cheated. God I hate these athletes who do this.
There was a beautiful movie circa 1980 called Chariots of Fire this should be the inspiration for all athletes. Athletes who won based on pushing their bodies to the limit, not from performance enhancing drugs, but hard work.
