    And smarmy, English upper class homosexual Sebastian Coe is now head of the IAAF.

    British athletics was a joke at the best of times. Its medal winners were either upper class pricks or Africans.

    Ofcourse "British" golden boy, or rather drug cheat Asian, Mo Farah gets his arse constantly kissed.
    Cold War 2 is well and truly underway...
    Sorry but this looks like it could be the real thing. BTW Coe was a pretty good runner in his day. Having just been elected head of the IAAF a huge barrel of shit has just been dumped on his head. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/athletics/11982874/Lord-Coe-admits-athletics-faces-long-way-back-from-worst-corruption-scandal-to-engulf-the-sport.html

    It all started in the summer when IAF blood test results appeared in the UK/German press showing inconsistencies (unnatural levels of I think white blood cells) in hundreds if not thousands of athlete's tests over many years. There was no denial that the printed results were incorrect, just that they should not have been published. See
    http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2015/aug/02/athletics-facing-new-doping-crisis

    OK, it currently looks like someone is trying to set Russia up as a fall guy but WADA picked Russia as the start of their investigation (par for the course as in many other areas of life) to divert attention but the whole episode stinks. It makes Blatter and FIFA look like amateurs. At least they only rigged the location of competitions, it looks like the IAF also rigged results, blackmailed competitors etc.

    There is a thread running at ZH on it, although it is a US site they really have a go at the US hypocrisy and that it is just two Canadians and a German that are demanding Russia's athletes be bared from the 2016 Olympics, note that that's not even an IAF event! Some good photo examples of US best of breed like Armstrong etc.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-11-09/commission-urges-banning-russian-track-and-field-athletes-2016-olympics

    What the British media WON|T admit is that Dick the Prick Pound (American!) is adding his own crap which doesn't have any evidence, and generally it isnt even in the crappy report.

    All major countries cheat. Mo Farah is most likely under the influence of drugs. Vast numbers of Americans too. But the report paints it out that Vladmir Putin is a baby eating demon that personally forces drugs down the throats of every single Russian. Its utter bullshit.

    And Coe is a cunt, a Conservative, smarmy silverspoon prick. He's America's little bitch boy.

    Russia still has Universaid and other games that seems to be even more profitable for Russia (Kazan made a great deal of money in it for example).

    America should have been ostracised from the World community after its genocide in Iraq.
    I hope Russia sends American sports back to the dark ages with some info releases.

    PS I notice America semi disappeared from athletics for a few yrs. I wonder if that was part of a long term plan to smear others. Either way, the pricks need taking down a peg or two.

    Here's a great article on this issue, it even goes in to the Cui Bono financial aspects working behind the scenes:

    Does the UK’s Athletics Boss Need a Fix of His Own?

    Recent allegations Russia’s athletes are somehow more doped up than their western counterparts are the latest political slings aimed at a people sick to death of the endless lies. The UK’s Athletics Chairman, Ed Warner called for Russia to be banned from international competition and worse just recently, based on hearsay and conjecture mostly. It seems these days, all that’s necessary to crucify Russia in the press is someone with an idea, and a microphone or a computer keyboard. Worse still, the business addicts in Britain accusing Russian athletes these days, need to pass their own piss tests.

    Before the Sochi Olympics in 2014, every dirty trick in the corporate politician’s playbook was pulled to try and ruin Russia’s Olympics. From LGBT uprisings to Washington’s humane society worries about stray dogs, it was a circus of anti-Russian insanity. Not only where the toilets of Sochi plungered by western media to find the stink, so was every Russian athlete who took to the ice or the slopes. If ever there were a prime opportunity to bust doped up Russian athletes, that would have been the prime opportunity. Ironically, Sochi did represent a banner year for doping losers from other countries.

    In 2014 a record number of athletes were caught and banned from competition or winning medals at Sochi. There was Austrian cross-country skier Johannes Duerr, Latvian hockey players Vitalijs Pavlovs and Ralfs Freibergs, Ukrainian cross-country skier Marina Lisogor, German biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle, Swedish hockey start Nicklas Backstrom , Polish bobsledder Daniel Zalewski, and Italian bobsledder William Frullani. It is ironic that the IOC could not uncover this massive Russsian athletic doping cabal Mr. Warner speaks of? One Russian athlete, biathlete Irina Starykh did withdraw a week before the games after testing positive.

    In Sochi the IOC carried out a record 2,812 tests, including pre-competition and out-of-competition blood and urine controls AND those samples are stored to allow for future testing once better means and methods become available. Perhaps Ed Warner’s latest method can be applied to all those samples? Maybe a wave of his mighty sports toughened hand will serve to find Russians guilty there too? Excuse my facetious tone, but these people make me physically ill. If Mr. Warner’s motivations were any more transparent, he’d be the invisible British man.

    Now on to Britain and the Games of London 2012. Even before London 2012 started, some 107 athletes had already tested positive for banned substances. It should also be noted here that British sprinter Dwain Chambers, cyclist David Millar and shot putter Carl Myerscoug had all been guilty of past doping offences, but competed in London anyway under a new ruling. There were also “busted” athletes who were allowed to compete, and who took home the gold medal from London. Those included; Road racing gold medalist form Kazakhstan Alexander Vinokourov, Russia’s female hammer thrower Tatyana Viktorovna Lysenko, Women’s 1500 meter champion from Turkey Aslı Çakır Alptekin, and World and Olympic Champion in the women’s discuss Sandra Perković from Croatia, Justin Gatlin and LaShawn Merritt from the US, and Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake. The list of athletes ruled out of even competing in London is extensive, but included American sprinter Debbie Dunn, Greece’s Dimítrios Chondrokoúkis, and Spanish steeplechaser Ángel Mullera.

    While there more Russian athletes penalized at London than any other nation (7), the United States’ entire 4 x 100m relay team was eliminated because of Tyson Gay. And if we go back as far as Salt Lake City and Turin in Winter competition, it looks like the entire nation of Austria is on some kind of hormone. Overall, since any form of testing was instituted, the cheating by enhancements from substances issue is a mixed bag with the United States and Russia running neck and neck with infractions. As for Britain, while those isles have their infractions, it appears not even steroids can help the UK win more than a gold here or there. (Sorry)

    In another case of “Putin’s Missile” or Chicken Little screaming “Russian Invasion from pursed beak, the western banking monopolies have also cornered the market on whiney wannabe athletes involved up to their necks in business. Sorry Mr. Warner, but you asked for it. Ed Warner (now get this) is a bean counter and former owner of IFX Group plc, a financial spread betting firm. Warner is also the non-executive chairman of Blackrock Commodities Income Investment Trust PLC, a firm notorious for milking energy investments for all they are worth. Warner should recues himself from making any statements at all concerning “dope” until the firm he represents divests itself of (Fund PFF) Exxon Mobil, Rio Tinto, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, BP, Conoco Phillips, and Statoil and especially BHP Billiton shares. With upwards of 50% of the trust’s assets in direct competition with Russian energy and minerals companies, it’s a wonder Vladimir Putin has not called for banning Britain from doing banking on the basis of UK athletics bean counting drugging.

    I guess I’ve made my point well enough, without delving into exactly how stock markets are leveraged by owned and influenced media, or by associating other members of Britain’s elitist athleticism clubs to the organized nature of sports today. I just want to say that Britain accusing anybody of anything in the current policy atmosphere, it’s ludicrous my friends. The Queen Mother has already called Lord Rothschild’s crew down for mucking up her Islands’ chances of survival in the long term. Deals with Kazakhstan and Moscow are in the wind now, more on that later. I just wanted all the principles involved to know, we’re out here ready to report on your eligibility to compete, with one false move to further “enhance” your fund performances at the expense of innocent human beings in Ukraine, Gaza, Syria, or even Sydney. Banned from competition? Indeed. No nation passes the piss test these days.

    First appeared: http://journal-neo.org/2015/11/12/does-the-uk-s-athletics-boss-need-a-fix-of-his-own/


    It's interesting that Ed Warner actually has a financial vendetta, an ax to grind to against Russia, due in part because of his conflict of interests, and that Russian petrochemical companies were in fact his direct competitors in many of his business dealings, and those Russian petrochemical companies also happen to be some of the biggest sponsors of Sochi 2014. It looks like through pressuring, and tarnishing Sochi 2014, he's attempting to engage in indirect financial/economic sabotage against his Russian corporate competition.

    IAAF has banned Russia “for the time being” and this means that Russian athletes cannot take part of any IAAF events including the Olympics and World Championships. Kazan was also stripped off from the youth Athletics World Championships that were to be held in Kazan in 2016. Kazan had spent a lot of money and effort to hold the games.

    The official reason for the ban is the usage of doping by Russian athletes, but the real reasons are probably be elsewhere.

    This is the first time that sports have been used as an extension of politics like this against a major country. Russia was the perfect target since Russia is clearly one of the biggest “obstacles” for the Western hegemony builders and yet Russia is not a superpower so it can be treated like this. The Soviet Union was a different story back in the days.

    Another reason for ordinary Russians to feel contempt towards the West.

    Not the first, not the last, this is simply going to cause that long lasting rift that will slowly, but surely create the seeds for a global confrontation. Frustrating Russians, is only the first step, next will be the Chinese and then whoever is outside the white boys club.

    It's a sad day for the world.

    I agree. It is a frustrating and enraging situation for the Russians. Nobody will buy the official explanation for the ban. This is just another punishment for ordinary Russians for opposing the Western dominated world order.

    The problem for Russia is that it is not a superpower anymore, so it cannot "persuade" any country to boycott the IAAF events. Not even Belarus or Armenia will sacrifice their Athletics team over Russia. And certainly not China.

    This is one of those cases where the West punished Russia just because it can and there is little that Russia can do about it.

    In order to break the monopoly of IAAF there would have to be a "mass escape" from the organization. Russia and China would not be enough. They would need countries like Brazil, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Jamaica etc. to do the same. The major Athletic countries.

    Since the IAAF has the monopoly for the Olympic games and the Olympics is the most precious sporting event in the world I don't think any individual country would sacrifice it's own Olympic participation for Russia.

    But anyhow, hopefully the ban will be lifted after 3 months.

    Well, the vote was 22-1 and many non-western countries took part, so they seem to have good reasons. It's not like the "Ukraine UN" vote when basically only western countries voted against Russia.

    It's currently more complicated than that. It's a restricted 27 people council. The Russian member didn't took part. So there are two people who haven't voted at all. It's one of those situations where you don't vote with your heart.

    Russian athletics federation hopes to resume its IAAF membership in three months

    An anti-crisis plan of action has been adopted at a meeting of the Russian Athletics Federation

    MOSCOW, November 15. /TASS/. The All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF) hopes to resume its membership in the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) in three months, ARAF’s acting president Vadim Zelichenok told journalists on Sunday.

    "We would like to resume as IAAF full-fledged member in three months," he said.

    Zelichenok also said that the extraordinary ARAF presidium meeting on Sunday with participation of Russian Minister of Sports Vitaly Mutko had adopted an anti-crisis plan of action. "There were not very many issues on the agenda. The IAAF decision on ARAF’s suspension was read out. We discussed this decision and possible ways to overcome this situation. An anti-crisis plan was adopted," he said.

    In his words, the key goal as of today is to ensure participation of Russian athletes in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. "It was confirmed once again that our key goal now is to ensure participation of Russian athletes in the Olympic Games and resume our status to give them a possibility to take part in all competitions," he said.

    According to Zelichenok, the next president of the All-Russian Athletics Federation will be in office for less than one year as the next regular elections will take place after the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. He also noted that Olympic champion Svetlana Masterkova has announced plans to run for ARAF president.

    "Another election conference will be held within six months after the Olympic Games," he told journalists. "People [candidates for ARAF president] should be aware they will be in office for a short period of time. However they have a possibility to be reelected for a longer term - four years."

    "Naturally, the winter season is most likely closed for us. That is why we want to expand the calendar of domestic competitions and, probably, invite foreigners," he added.

    Here is where the test will be.  In three months time, and they do fix all the issues mentioned in the Agenda, and they still not allowed in, then it will be easily viewed as political and nothing more.  At that point, Russia should continue operating domestic competitions among regions and invite foreign countries such as China, India, Brazil, N.Korea, S.Korea, etc etc etc to all participate in such events, and eventually open similar events in the other countries.  Bypass the IAAF altogether.  Keep up with Universaide and work on something else.  After Russia being singled out from all the other major doping countries, I imagine there will be many countries opened to also participating in an another event.

    Time to accuse her of using dope. The NATO hate propaganda chorus is on the case.
