    Make a competition and call it World Championship. Just like Amiland does it all the time. You win the domestic Baseball league and you are "world champion", even when there are countries like Kuba, Venezuela, even Japan, that are better in the game. Why shouldn´t Russia do the same in track and field?

    Think St P makes most sense as a bid.
    But the Olympic movement sadly seems very diseased especially with the "Washington Disease".

    Yekaterinburg/the Urals. I think their plan is the World Expo Fair bid. Needs to beat Osaka. Failing that they should get it next time, perhaps?

    Sochi is prob a little small for an Olympics. But who knows? It could sustain lots of accommodation and
    a bid might help it develop infrastructures even further. I'm not sure how it might fare vs megacity bids though?

    Vladivostock might grow enormously over coming decades. Maybe with massive casino/tourist development and facilities to bring in visitors from China, Japan and Korea it COULD become a bidder at some point. There is a population of HUNDREDS of millions not that far away! Maybe its a little too earlier to think of that though.

    2018 European Championships become Russian swimming team’s most successful ever

    The swimming competition in Glasgow ended on Thursday with women’s 4x100m medley relay event, which Russia won

    GLASGOW /UK/, August 10. /TASS/. Russia’s national swimming team has shown its best European Championships performance ever during this year’s event in Glasgow, beating the previous record set by Soviet Union swimmers.

    The swimming competition in Glasgow ended on Thursday with women’s 4x100m medley relay event, which Russia won. Anastasia Fesikova, Yulia Efimova, Svetlana Chimrova and Maria Kameneva finished the distance with the result of 3 minutes 54.22 seconds and the advantage of 2.47 seconds over the Danish swimmers, who took the silver clocking 3 minutes 56.69 seconds.

    It was Russia’s tenth gold at the tournament. In total, Russia won 26 medals (ten gold, ten silver and six bronze medals) in the competition, held as part of the inaugural multi-sport European Championships.

    This is the biggest number of gold medals ever won by swimmers at a European competition in the history of modern Russia, and Russia’s best overall performance in terms of medals won. Previously, the national team’s most successful European Championships took place in 1981, when Soviet swimmers won 24 medals - ten gold, seven silver and seven bronze.

    Russia’s national team tops the overall medals standings of the 2018 European Championships, with 66 medals.

    Second is Britain’s team, with 71 medals, of which 24 are gold, 25 are silver, and 22 are bronze.

    Six sets of medals are yet to be contested at the championships but it is obvious already now that Britons will not be able to challenge Russia’s lead.

    The 2018 European Championship is the first multi-sport event uniting different European championships and is held between August 2 and 12 in Scotland’s Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as in Germany’s Berlin.

    The European multi-event championship include competitions in such sports as swimming, open water swimming, synchronized swimming, track cycling, road cycling, mountain biking, BMX, rowing and triathlon, artistic gymnastics, athletics, diving, golf.

    Why bother with an investigation... guilty as charged because it is highly likely they cheated... what sanctions can they impose?
