    As for Serena Williams, she has lost a lot of that 'roid bulk.   Which confirms that she was doping full bore.


    Serena could smack the tennis ball with her clitoris, no need for a racket at all... Embarassed Razz lol1

    Actually this is a nice piece of evidence that Washington dominated "international" organizations are nothing more than
    crony run rackets. This ban is purely political and some sort of "collective punishment". WADA made no report on
    paralympians being doped.

    Yes, apparently, but what happens after? What frustrates me is the harrowing reality that USA will get away with this, and people wouldn't care, Yes people will realize its a political move, but that's mostly it. After humiliating Russia its going to be business as usual like nothing happened.

    I apologize for the kind of language in my previous post. But after all the recent events, in Syria, Novorosiya, in Sports, etc. The Forces of Nato continues to score points with their evil and dirty tricks. I just wish Russia puts the gloves off and start playing more dirtier. Nato needs to have a bloody nose after all this mess they have created

    Russia is moving in this direction already. Since at least 2013 it has been pushing its own line on Syria and prevented Obamy from
    doing the US routine of bomb and regime change. I think it will keep pushing into areas where Uncle Scam had assume he had a
    free hand as well. I don't mean the cesspool call the EU, it is worth nothing, but in the middle east and elsewhere that are significant.
    Russia will not let Uncle Scam concentrate all the strife and chaos on Russian soil and on its doorstep. It will hit back.

    Right now it looks like the sock puppets of Uncle Scam in Kiev are going to go for another assault on the Donbas. I expect that
    there will be surprises for NATO monkeys.

    Western media is going full retard, isn't it ?

    http://uawire.org/news/bild-will-not-include-russia-on-olympic-medals-table-in-its-newspaper

    The sports editor of Bild newspaper, Walter Straten, said on June 20th that the German newspaper would not include the results of Russian athletes in the medal table if the Russian team is allowed to participate in the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. According to Straten, the International Olympic Committee and its President, Thomas Bach, have not yet decided on Russia’s participation in the Olympic Games.

    “We will not do so. If Russia is allowed in the Olympics, Bild will remove its results from the medal table and announce the results of Russian athletes as invalid,” the journalist noted.

    @Project, @KVS: how about Russia organizes her own Paralympic and invites her friends to participate ? It is time to tell the Western world that "without you people, the bazaar is still crowded".

    Here is what the "International" Paralympics Committee is made from:

    President Sir Philip Craven (GBR)
    • Vice President Andrew Parsons (BRA)
    • Member Mohammed Alhameli (UAE)
    • Member Ann Cody (USA)
    • Member Rita van Driel (NED)
    • Member Patrick Jarvis (CAN)
    • Member Duane Kale (NZL)
    • Member Jairus Mogalo (KEN)
    • Member Kyung-won Na (KOR)
    • Member John Petersson (DEN)
    • Member Miguel Sagarra (ESP)
    • Member Yasushi Yamawaki (JPN)
    • Athletes’ Representative* Todd Nicholson (CAN)
    • Chief Executive Officer** Xavier Gonzalez(ESP)

    Aside from the Brazilian and the Kenyan these are all NATO and affiliated clowns. These days Brazil is sucking Uncle Scam's cock
    and Kenya is neither here nor there (i.e. it is bending over with no resistance).

    I would not call the above an "international committee" by any reasonable criterion. It is basically a NATO front and acts like it.
    Craven's Russophobic drivel is over the top.

    Higourashi, you raise a good point. Russia needs to start setting open criteria for what it considers to be an international organization.
    Then it needs to act on it and be clear to the world what its reasoning is. Russia can use NATO's alleged "political correctness" against
    it. The IPC is some sort of old boys' club with a couple of token ethnics (from NATO aligned countries) to prove that it is "multi-ethnic".
    I see mostly whites (Hispanics are whites as they are Europeans).

    Any international organization should have Chinese, Vietnamese, Malay or there South-East Asians and not just NATO stooge Japan.
    Latin America cannot be represented by Brazil and its illegitimate government. Africa is more than some former colonial bootlick.
    Europe and its offshoots should not have 10 out 14 sets on any international committee. There should be some population
    weighting in the committee but it cannot be perfect since China and India then get 5 positions out 14.

    Moskva Rus and Kievan Rus are dominating the Olympic female fencing.

    Probably this is the reason why the dogs and pigs in IOC and IPC don't want Russia to participate in Olympic.

    https://www.rt.com/sport/355145-womens-individual-saber-final-gold-medal/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    It was an all-Russian final in the women's individual saber fencing that saw Yana Egorian winning gold and leaving her compatriot Sofiya Velikaya with silver.

    The 22-year-old Egorian beat Vilikaya in the final match 15:14. The bronze medal went to Ukrainian Olga Kharlan, who overcame French fencer Manon Brunet by the score of 15:10.

    I know there is anger at the West about the alleged Russian state supported doping program. But I want to know did the East Germans and the USSR dope to get an edge on the West during the Cold War? I know a lot of American athletes allegedly doped during that time like track athletes such as Flo Jo.  But would like people's comments about doping across the Iron Curtain? How extensive was it?  We here in the West believed East German swimmers and track athletes were apart of state supported doping program.  My opinion since there was such widespread doping during the 70s and 80s on both sides that all records set before 1990 in track and field should be erased from the books.

    Every country has drug cheats so blanket bans are political.

    If all Russia athletes are cheats and have used drugs then let them compete and you will catch them during the tests and you can ban them for using drugs.

    Banning all Russian athletes because you suspect some of them might be taking drugs is political bullshit and is the real stuff that should not be involved in international sports.

    You can't ban all white athletes or all black or asian athletes but you can ban all Russians?

    Yeah right.

    Why do Western nations on average perform so poorly in Wrestling? Outside of the occasional American medaling in Olympic Wrestling, it's a sport that's dominated by the CIS/post-USSR states, Iran, and Turkey. No country can dominate every single sport, every single time, the Americans used to dominate Olympic Sprinting in the 90's, but now have to resort to doping (Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin) just to be even slightly competitive to the Jamaicans.

    Russia’s national team stripped of 2008 Olympic gold in 4x100 m relay race

    GENEVA, August 17. /TASS/. Russia’s national track and field team has been stripped of the 2008 Olympic Games gold medal in the 4x100 meter relay race due to a positive doping test of runner Yulia Chermoshanskaya, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said in a statement.

    The decision, which took effect immediately, was made as a result of double-checking 2008 Olympic Games doping tests. Chermoshanskaya’s sample tested positive for two banned substances - stanozolol and turinabol.

    Yevgeniya Polyakova, Aleksandra Fedoriva and Yulia Gushchina took part in the relay race with Chermoshanskaya. From now on, Russia’s 4x100m relay race national team has been officially suspended.

    Russia’s Olympic Committee should return the gold medals to the IOC as soon possible.

    Russian team ends Olympics with 56 medals, ranks 4th in team standings

    That is the worst result for Russian in 20 years

    RIO DE JANEIRO, August 21. /TASS/. The Russian team ends the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro ranking fourth in the unofficial team standings, winning 56 medals - 19 gold, 18 silver and 19 bronze.

    That is the worst result for Russian in 20 years but it should be taken into account that this time almost all Russian track and field athletes, all weightlifters and most of the members of the rowing team were not allowed to take part in the Games.

    Russia won in those events which were not affected by doping scandals and where its athletes no problems with the admission to the Olympics.

    In Rio de Janeiro, the Russian team was ahead of the team of Germany in unofficial team standings and significantly outmatched it in number of medals. Also the performance of Russians in Rio de Janeiro became more diverse: they won medals in 15 events.

    Difficult psychological background affected the performance of the team. Many leading athletes, including Yulia Efimova, the team’s main hope in swimming, were allowed to participate in the Games at the last moment thanks to decisions of the Sports Arbitration Court.

    At the Games in Rio de Janeiro, only Russian fencing team exceeded the expectations of fans and won seven medals including four gold ones. This happened mainly because fencing was not affected by the doping scandal the Russian team faced recently.

    Only the wrestling team of Russia performed better than fencers and won nine medals including four gold ones. It is also obvious that Russian wrestlers could have performed better, if it was not for humiliating defeats of Natalia Vorobyeva and Biljan Machov.

    The Russian team won two gold medals of two possible ones in synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics, but everyone got accustomed to domination of Russians in these events and any other result would have been considered a disaster.

    The victories of judokas Beslan Mudranov and Hassan Khalmurzaev were the main events of the first days of the Olympics, but in general the Russian judo team performed worse than at the previous Olympics in London winning only three gold medals (5 gold medals in London).

    Most of the events were not gold for Russians but some performances of young athletes, although they were not victorious, gave hope for the future.

    Russia showed that it has excellent sprinters in cycling track - Anastasia Voinova and Daria Shmeleva who finished second in the team sprint.

    19-year-old Stephanie Elfutina won bronze in surf-class sailing event.

    The Olympics in Rio also discovered promising swimmers - bronze Olympic medalists Evgeny Rilov (back) and Anton Chupkov (breaststroke).

    The silver medal of Russian women archers in the team competition as well as medals of very young shooters - Vitalina Batsarashkina and Vladimir Maslennikov - can be considered a breakthrough.

    In swimming and diving events the results were poor. In other situation Yulia Efimova might have won two gold medals instead of two silvers but in any case the last victory of Russian swimmers in the pool dates back to 1996, when Alexander Popov and Denis Pankratov won two gold medals. Over the last 20 years, Russia ceased to be a swimming power.

    Russian divers did not win any medals, although four years ago in London, Ilya Zakharov and Evgeny Kuznetsov were strong rivals for the Chinese divers and Zakharov even won gold on three-meter springboard.

    A record low number of Russian participants at the Games in Rio de Janeiro was not only because of the removal of track and field athletes and some other sportsmen. Only four Russian teams participated in team sports - men's and women's volleyball teams, as well as handball and water polo players.

    However, the women's handball and water polo teams performed brilliantly. For the first time in 16 years Russian water polo players won an Olympic medal, a bronze, while the handball team under the leadership of Eugeny Trefilov undoubtedly became the brightest Russian team at the Olympics.

    Having won in all the matches of the tournament, women's handball team won the first ever Olympic gold medals. It also became the first Russian Olympic champion in the women's team sports.

    In volleyball Russia showed a noticeable retreat in comparison with 2012, when the gold medal was won by the men's team.

    In Rio de Janeiro, Vladimir Alekno’s team was only fourth, losing in the decisive matches to Brazil and the United States.

    Women's team under the leadership of Yuri Marichev became a disappointment losing in the quarterfinals to competitors from Serbia.

    The Olympics in Rio de Janeiro was the most challenging for the Russian team. It was difficult to withstand the psychological pressure, as well as to focus directly on the performance in those sports where the management was able to protect athletes as much as possible from external influence.

    WADA still hasn't provided evidence of widescale doping, so a mega lawsuit from the Russian side is bound to be on it's way. That's right WADA was pushing to ban Russia from the Olympics without even reviewing then submitting the evidence first.

    I want to know do other countries play the national anthem at the beginning of every single local high school, college and professional sporting events? There was an athlete here in USA that refused to stand for the anthem to protest police brutality. Every high school, college and professional sporting event here in USA starts off with the national anthem. Please tell me your opinions please. This is from a comments section from a website:

    Enough already. Sports are just entertainment. We don't go through this ritual before concerts, or plays, or movies, or any other form of mass entertainment, yet relentless expressions of patriotism, jingoism, and military worship seem a requirement when it comes to sports. It's tiresome. It's not just that anthem...it's the perpetual military worship, too. I just don't want to do it anymore, and the fact that I can't say that without being accused of being AGAINST THE TROOPS only makes me more cynical about these rituals.

    In the US it seems utterly atrocious. Remember modern day sports in the West is v similar to the Roman gladiators thing ie a mass distraction from reality. And a load of jinogistic bullshit to boot.

    I live in Britain and they try and slip it in. But most people hate it. Too much "support our lads" and "help for heroes" or rather shepherd murderers in the case of Iraq etc.

    I refuse to clap their parades at sporting events. Because they weren't defending Britain in Iraq etc, they were licking George Bush and co's arseholes. What sort of liars kill millions in a secular state that had a CHRISTIAN as its deputy leader (Iraq) and then lets in loads of terrorists/radical Islamists into Britain. The security threat to Britain was never in Iraq. It was in the vast numbers of morons we already have in Britain.

    Our anthem is utterly appalling. I mean "God Save the Queen". Most countries ditched that shit 100s of years ago. At Wembley Stadium I walk out into the concourse when its played. Makes me ashamed to be a British citizen.

Please tell me your opinions please.  This is from a comments section from a website:

    Enough already. Sports are just entertainment. We don't go through this ritual before concerts, or plays, or movies, or any other form of mass entertainment, yet relentless expressions of patriotism, jingoism, and military worship seem a requirement when it comes to sports. It's tiresome. It's not just that anthem...it's the perpetual military worship, too. I just don't want to do it anymore, and the fact that I can't say that without being accused of being AGAINST THE TROOPS only makes me more cynical about these rituals.

    In the US it seems utterly atrocious. Remember modern day sports in the West is v similar to the Roman gladiators thing ie a mass distraction from reality. And a load of jinogistic bullshit to boot.

    I live in Britain and they try and slip it in. But most people hate it. Too much "support our lads" and "help for heroes" or rather shepherd murderers in the case of Iraq etc.

    I refuse to clap their parades at sporting events. Because they weren't defending Britain in Iraq etc, they were licking George Bush and co's arseholes.

    Land of Hope and Glory should be the UK national anthem:

    This song is a graduation song here in America.

    Alternative Paralympics opens in Moscow after Rio blanket ban for Team Russia (VIDEO)

    An alternative competition among Paralympians has kicked off in Moscow after the entire Russian Paralympics team was banned from participating in Rio 2016 Paralympics by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).

    The opening ceremony of the nationwide open competition was held in Moscow’s Crocus City Hall on Wednesday, Interfax news agency reported. During a picturesque ceremony, all Russian athletes who were prohibited from taking part in the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro paraded through the concert hall, the same way as at the opening ceremonies for the global Olympic and Paralympic Games.
