    Propose a direct sports confrontation between Russia and the US in women's figure skating on a neutral ground.

    Disqualification of Kamila Valieva CAS destroys world sport, by Elena Karaeva for RiaNovosti. 01.29.2024.

    The current phase of the Olympic movement is politicized by the United States - to a fault.
    After a de facto ban on our participation in the Games, the CAS ( Court of Arbitration for Sport ) decided to disqualify one of the strongest figure skaters in the world, our Kamila Valieva for four years.

    Start of ineligibility - date of discovery of the “prohibited substance”: December 25, 2021. Accordingly, Kamila will be deprived of all other people’s awards.

    The discovery became known during the Beijing Olympics, exactly between the team triumph of the Russian figure skaters and the rollback of the individual program. By a strange coincidence (it happens!) Naturally, American athletes came second in the discipline.

    On the other side of the Atlantic, the press is now - and just as understandably - rejoicing, predicting exactly how the Russians will be deprived of Olympic gold. Giving it to American women. Actually, if I wanted to clarify the names of the customers and beneficiaries of this whole story, I didn’t have to look far, nor did I have to think long about who might benefit from this scandal. Today. And who benefited then?

    The reasons for creating an artificial and completely meaningless hype are also understandable; in first, second, third and so on places is the desire to “bury” stronger rivals. The court was given the opportunity to eliminate America's competitors . In the States, sport, needless to say, is as pure and pure as a baby’s tear.

    And the incidents of cyclist Lance Armstrong or the same Carl Lewis, who were caught regularly and regularly using prohibited substances, but were not only then allowed to participate in competitions, but also won medals in them, are nothing more than special cases and “shortcomings of local work.”

    Because this is America and because there is always a “different situation”. We agree with the first statement. Yes, the United States, suffering from the “lonely giant” syndrome, behaved and behaves like a hooligan from the gateway, whom they are afraid to cross. And no, there is no “other situation”, what then, what today is not, and could not be. Either you win by working and denying yourself everything for the sake of winning, or you pump yourself up on pills. Armstrong beat his chest, shouting: “I never used any doping!” True, they pinned him down, because it was no longer possible to pretend that everything was OK.

    And Lewis absolutely got away with it. His explanation that he "accidentally ate the wrong thing" was accepted as evidence of ignorance and lack of malice. And in general, according to the Americans, the athlete has taken the path of correction. Therefore, international anti-doping authorities have already lined up so as not to interfere with Lewis’s correction.
    The attitude towards Kamila Valieva was organized according to a completely different scenario, and I can’t even call it anything other than bullying.

    Starting from the date of publication of the test results (remember that our figure skater was 15 years old at that time) and ending with a powerful campaign in the media and social networks to destabilize the girl on the eve of the most important competition.

    By the way, in addition to Lewis “Whoever Remembers the Old, Look Away,” who came out unscathed, one can also name Simone Biles . She was such a champion, the best, the coolest, “beating all her rivals in one fell swoop,” who was unable to cope with something so mental, which led to her self-withdrawal from the competition at the Tokyo Olympics two years ago.

    Then, and very casually, the Biles-friendly press said that “due to the rules for the import of psychotropic drugs into the Land of the Rising Sun, the athlete was deprived of taking her usual medications.” And then the gymnast herself said that she swallowed, in particular, amphetamine - “on a doctor’s prescription and for therapeutic purposes,” and so, of course, she believes in “clean sport.” Of course, no possible claims reached any CAS, and all those who, by virtue of their positions - and receiving astronomical salaries - should, in theory, defend “sport without tablets,” said with one voice: “This is our girl, and we are her You haven’t even seen the drugs, and anyway, why are you bothered?”

    To such a unanimous “no,” of course, there is no Court of Arbitration for Sport. Those who are dissatisfied can cool off and drink some water.

    CAS, by its own will or under pressure, has turned into an instrument for settling scores, that is, into a repressive apparatus, to call a spade a spade. And we couldn’t expect any other decision from the repressive apparatus regarding our athlete. And in general, if you understand that after the abolition of our culture came the turn of the abolition of our sport, then this news did not cause any surprise, and it could not have caused any.

    And most importantly, today’s document has a very limited geographical effect, since it is definitely not recognized here and Kamila will continue, if she deems it necessary, to compete where and when she likes it.

    Our happiness - and this word can be used here without embarrassment or doubt - is that our sport, following the economy, becomes sovereign, that is, independent from other people's political games, as well as from the desire to conform to someone else's agenda. And also from the system of medal, team and other classifications. The time for measuring with someone else's yardstick has expired.
    And this is actually very cool.

    And Kamila, our beloved champion, can only wish new victories today. Ours - and therefore real.

    Macron's words make Russian participation in the Olympics unpatriotic, by Denis Mirolyubov, editor in chief of Invoice Media for VZGLYAD. 03.21.2024.

    A document was published separately, which specifies the principles of participation in the Games. It is noteworthy that this paper was prepared exclusively for Russians and Belarusians, but does not contain an official translation into Russian. These are the charters these days.

    They gave birth. This is the best word to describe the decision of the executive committee of the International Olympic Committee, which finally announced the final requirements for athletes from Russia and Belarus who will be able to qualify and get to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

    This document, so to speak, has been awaited for many months. Russian sports authorities needed to understand whether domestic athletes could get to the Games without risking a whole bunch of problems. But it has now become clear that athletes will not have to sign declarations of political neutrality. However, each specific candidate will be approved.

    There are only six admission criteria. Firstly, athletes from Russia and Belarus can enter the Olympics exclusively as neutrals, and they will be designated as Individual Neutral Athletes. Secondly, the “happiness” of performing at competitions, where there should be no place for politics, is allowed only to single athletes - in team events in Russia and Belarus it is not allowed to compete. Thirdly, athletes who support the SVO or are at least somehow noticed to sympathize with their native country will definitely be deprived of access. Fourthly, a ban from the IOC is guaranteed for athletes who entered into contracts with military structures. The same applies to representatives of support staff. Also, athletes must comply with all anti-doping standards (but it cannot be ruled out that “violations” will be quickly invented). Finally, all individual athletes are required to sign a pledge to abide by the Olympic Charter, which, let me remind you, includes a clause on the peaceful mission of the Olympic movement. Roughly speaking, you need to sign up for things that the IOC itself does not comply with.

    But the outright circus begins next. A document was published separately, which specifies the principles of participation in the Games. It is noteworthy that this paper was prepared exclusively for Russians and Belarusians, but does not contain an official translation into Russian. These are the charters these days. The main motive of this document is that neutral athletes must comply with everything, have no rights to anything, can always be suspended, etc. The same applies to fans from Russia and Belarus, who are not allowed to wave flags that even remotely resemble the flags of Russia and Belarus, respectively. Athletes who managed to win medals will receive them along with diplomas for their performances, but their results, most likely, will not be included in the Games table.

    The only plus is that this whole Olympic bacchanalia can affect only 36 Russian athletes, unless, of course, they are removed by the “admission group.” It is obvious that this group will drown under the “compromising evidence” provided by the Ukrainian side - and they will always find something to come up with. This means that a lot of “surprises” will await the arriving athletes from Russia. I have no doubt that there will be provocations through the roof, and most likely there will be unprovoked accusations.

    With the IOC, which is clearly exceeding its powers, everything is clear. Everything is also clear with democracy, the West and its values. Of course, the Russian Foreign Ministry has already expressed its “fie” about the admission rules and the actions of the IOC in general. But it won't change anything.

    Moreover, frankly speaking, there is no unity on this issue in Russia itself. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko believes that it is still necessary to go to the Games, despite the proposed conditions. State Duma deputy Svetlana Zhurova proposed a certain alaverda to the IOC, namely, not to answer until the last day whether we will participate. And the President of the All-Russian Federation of Rhythmic Gymnastics, Irina Viner, is sure that the anthem, under which the IOC invites neutral athletes to perform, is nothing more than a funeral march - and humiliation in this way is unacceptable.

    In such a situation, you shouldn’t expect unity from athletes either. Everyone will decide for themselves. And in the same way, every fan has the right to his own attitude to everything that happens.

    I believe that in this situation, Wiener’s opinion is closer to most citizens, including me. Especially considering that Paris and Emmanuel Macron personally have recently threatened Russia with sending troops to Ukraine. Going to the Games in such circumstances is at least unpatriotic. And, at the most, a betrayal of one’s homeland. Going to the Olympics now is like being a captive jester in front of a foreign master.

    Athletes today should forget about personal ambitions, especially since they have alternatives in the form of, for example, the Friendship Games. And collectively show the IOC the middle finger - it has long deserved it.

    The IOC was barking at sportsmen from around the world not to participate in the Friendship Games in Russia. So Russia should boycott and bypass the IOC
    until the IOC stops being a NATzO condom, which is not any time soon.

    All "international" institutions that are NATzO condoms, for example the WHO, need to be boycotted by Russia as enemy outfits with the explicit purpose
    of doing Russia harm. In the process people around the world will benefit from suppression of the reach of these corrupt tools of NATzO's self anointed
    masters of the universe.

    Racist

    where there should be no place for politics
    Remember the west showing the Ukro flag at any sporting event?

    Thirdly, athletes who support the SVO or are at least somehow noticed to sympathize with their native country will definitely be deprived of access. 
    Just like the Americans and Brits after they attacked Iraq.  Rolling Eyes
    Just kidding.

     Fourthly, a ban from the IOC is guaranteed for athletes who entered into contracts with military structures.
    Will Israeli soldiers be banned from the Games???  angel

    includes a clause on the peaceful mission of the Olympic movement
    While the Games are being held in a NATO state which had until recently a number of military engagements in Africa.

    Athletes who managed to win medals will receive them along with diplomas for their performances, but their results, most likely, will not be included in the Games table.
    Some Jews were allowed to participate in Berlin in 1936.
    These special rules make the IOC worse than Nazi Germany.
