    Default 2018 Winter Olympics

    Russia banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang


    After meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland on Tuesday, a 14-person International Olympic Committee panel announced it has banned Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. The panel had been mulling a confidential IOC report that detailed Russia’s official doping program during the 2014 Sochi Olympics, and the extensive cover-up.

    As a result of this ban, no Russian officials will be allowed to attend the games. Their flag will be excluded from any display, and if any Russian athletes are given permission to attend, they won’t be competing under the Russian flag. They’ll compete under a neutral flag, and any medals they win won’t be credited to Russia.

    This ban was a long time coming. The McLaren Report, released in two parts by the World Anti-Doping Agency in July and December 2016, detailed the doping and subsequent cover-up by the Russian state. It started as far back as 2011 and involves at least the 2012 Olympics in London and the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, though the IOC panel was only asked to rule on the doping that occurred during the 2014 Olympics. Over 1,000 athletes were involved.

    The olympics is rigged. Also I think it would be funny as hell if Putin airstriked the opening ceremony.

    Congrats to the US men's team winning the gold medal in curling for the first time. Five straight wins after starting 2-4

    'The Rejects' history is quite the inspirational tale. This would make a good sports movie.
