    At the opening ceremony, and IPC are now going to investigate Belarus...
    Russia Sports News: - Page 11 Deb627fd9fce

    From 2012, but now very fitting


    Edit: Lukashenko about Belarus team flying Russian flag, "This is the public position of our country. We support this decision of our paralympians, as we believe that the Russian team should participate in this competition. The Russians are our brothers, the people closest to us."  The man who held the flag is director of track and field athletes Andrei Fomochkin, who I do not doubt may now find himself in difficulties with IPC/Washington. The western yellow press are already describing him as an "offender", and the flag has apparently been "arrested".

    Similar news, in RT

    https://www.rt.com/sport/358613-belarus-russian-flag-paralympics/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    Belarusian Paralympic team carries Russian flag in support of banned athletes (PHOTO)

    Belarusian athletes carried the Russian flag during the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games to express solidarity with the Russian team, which was banned from the event. The protest went ahead despite a threat of sanctions from officials.

    Yes, the IPC cofiscated the Russian flag. Look at the paragraph below and can you believe there are such hypocrisy ?

    The International Paralympic Committee (IPC), which confiscated the flag right after the protest, cancelled the accreditation of the man who carried it on Thursday. The IPC also told RT he had been identified “as a guest of the Belarus Secretary General who should not have been part of the marching party in the first place.”

    The IPC also said it would remind the Belarusian National Paralympic Committee that “political protests are forbidden at the Paralympic Games,” (ah yes, double standard) adding that it considers the matter closed.

    Something was bugging me so I did some number crunching:

    Number of Russian athletes in Rio was 39,23% smaller than one in London. Those in Rio were dope-tested into the stratosphere.

    With that in mind take a look at these numbers:


    Russia Sports News: - Page 11 Stats10


    I might be wrong (someone should double check because I am a bit hammered ATM) but according to this it turns out that decimated and 100% clean Russian team in Rio has been significantly more successful per athlete than one in London.  And they competed against more numerous teams that were only getting occasional and spotty dope-tests.  

    In both cases they ranked 4th on the medal table.

    So that ''Russians win because of steroids'' theory can be put to the grave now. Fuck you world. russia

    Lol don't you know? US gymnastics team hasn't had a physical issue for 3 fucking years...not even a sprain ankle. How the fucking realistic is that?

    Also most records these olympics came from the Swimming pool. None was Russian...what does that tell you?

    And the guy who was breaking those swimming records, also has a history of illicit substance abuse. If that's not enough, we could just look at the hypocrisy of the 1988 Olympics. Carl Lewis tested positive for illegal amphetamines and nothing happens, but Canadian Ben Johnson tests positive for steroids, but he gets his medal taken away from him.

    Russia did it very well in Rio. If track and field athletes, weightlifters especially Kasirina, sprint canoers had been allowed we could have 5-6 golds more (Shubenkov in 110mh, Kuchina in high jump, Insibayeva in Pole vault, Kashirina in +78kg and maybe +1 weightlifter and canoer Alexander Dyachenko)

    Ok...so you remember when yours only pointed out that the US gymnastics team didn't report a medical injury for 3 years straight?

    Well...they did in Rio...to cover for abnormal blood-test results. And not only the Gymnastics team.

    But they admit that Prednisone use was allowed for "special cases".   Prednisone is a steroid.   Meldonium isn't.  Prednisone leads to
    muscle mass accumulation and stamina increases.   Meldonium does not increase muscle mass and its effect on stamina is unproven
    and dubious.   It is basically a fancy anti-inflammatory that helps the heart and other tissues recover faster after physical stress but
    that is not the same thing as giving the athlete more stamina.

    At the end of the day, if WADA is banning Meldonium then it should ban vitamin C as well.   Both affect cell recovery and are
    anti-inflammatory.

    Also, WADA signed off on steroid use a posteriori which means that Prednisone was not the only steroid that
    could have been used. Basically there was no oversight of steroid use by the NATO "elite".

    Vladimir Putin wrote:We don’t approve of what hackers do, but what they’ve done is definitely of interest to the international community, especially the sports community. It raises a lot of questions. It turns out that healthy athletes legally take medications that are prohibited for others, and the people who obviously suffer from serious illnesses and severe disabilities are being banned from the Paralympics only on suspicion of using some kind of drugs.

    Americans are such hypocrites: This comment from the article I posted from Cadawa Waller sums it up perfectly:

    Another example of 'American exceptionalism'. No one gets to take drugs but us. We (the U.S.) get to decide who we will and will not compete with.
    Unlike the American athletes. Sharapova did have a medical condition and WADA, the tool of American exceptionalism still wouldn't let her play. Even though the drug she was taking has not been proven to enhance performance and had only recently been banned (at the request of the US) and was sold under a different name in Russia.
    Russian athletes who passed more recent drug tests were also banned for past infractions. U.S. athletes, obviously, were not.
    It was a political charade meant to taint Russian athletes and make American athletes look better than they are by removing serious competition.
    What it actually did was taint the accomplishments of American athletes and reinforce the international community's bad opinion of the U.S..

    A Tuesday smile for you all

    What do you do when you're bored at work and have a few minutes to spare? This Russian ice hockey goalie from "Traktor" decided to show off his dance moves. And if you've always thought hockey was a brutal sport, just watch him float like a butterfly before returning to his post, ready to sting like a bee...or, you know, save like a goalie.

    The video shows the goalkeeper by his post during a momentary pause in play… but then suddenly a classical tune starts playing. He just couldn’t stand still and broke into a smooth skating dance demonstrating some really nice ice skating moves to the delight of the onlookers. Although someone in the stands did scream for him to stop before the opponent team scored!

    The Traktor club commented on the goalkeeper’s performance saying that, “Unfortunately, we cannot say which of the goalkeepers danced because there was no number on the shirt.”

    As for his reason, the club said that the Russian figure skating championship is due to take place in the city of Chelyabinsk in December 2016. “The city is breathing with anticipation of the championship and apparently our goalkeeper is too. He decided to have some fun and show what he can do. We think it is really funny!” Traktor club commented. Skate on, man…skate on!

    WADA claimed, without proof, that Russians doped at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. Now WADA has been exposed as
    spreader of libel and defamation:

    https://sputniknews.com/sport/201612091048374113-russia-athletes-sochi/

    The mandatory samples from all the Russian athletes have been re-tested and found clean. WADA is now claiming that
    1000 Russians (including athletes) are involved in the "state organized doping program", again without a shred of proof
    aside from a "witness" who is fully in conflict of interest (he ran off to the USA and got generous financial support). The
    above re-testing proves that this "witness" is not credible. But WADA keeps on engaging in libel and defamation against
    Russians.
