>In 2016, the World Anti-Doping Agency said one Russian track athlete had tried to bribe a drug tester, while another **ran out of the stadium during her own race.**
Watch Icarus on Netflix. It is about claimed Russian doping during the Olympics and will freaking blow your mind. It starts slow and it might look boring like it's some kind of bicycle race documentary (it isn't) but it really picks up after a few minutes and you will be on the edge of your seat for the rest of the show.
They keep this up, they won't have ANYONE left to compete.
Russia should be banned from all international sporting events until we can be certain they are not cheating.
Russians....they do what they gotta do.
It's like with all their good ski athletes, where everytime a exciting Russian prospects shows up, you know you don't really have to follow him as he will be inevitably found guilty of doping one or two years later.
Why dont they make 2 classes? Doped and undoped. Then everyone wins (except when a doper drops dead).
Never forget Apollo, fuck you Ivan Drago!
What the hell are doping testers doing in Russia? Who do they work for? The state custom built an anti doping facility for Sochi around the strategy of swapping out test bottles from Russian athletes. Then they denied it despite the proof. They still deny it. That's why they're not allowed to send a team to Korea next month.
So now they have testers chasing athletes out of competitions? I don't get it.
I don't understand why they needed to cheat. Russians are amazing at winter sports. Did the athletes in this scandal have a choice if they wanted to participate or not? Edit: Idk why this is being downvoted it was a serous question. Could they have said no?
