Re: Russia Banned

Nice one Camden but they will compete under the Olympic (not the Russian) flag and their apparel will show ‘Olympic Athlete from Russia’.

Apt that alleged dopers will be using the Olympic flag as most Olympic nations are at it

So we can hope to see a couple of thousand red white blue tracksuits and Trainers dumped on brick lane market for Christmas.lol

Serious though, think it would certainly take the edge off Putin's Russian prestige, they might learn not to dope.

Unfortunately for the athlete though, no throat in mouth experience when you have won seeing your own flag being raised and the national anthem played, don't you think?

Apparently not, it seems to have strengthened Putin’s hand …

“MOSCOW – Opinion polls show Vladimir Putin is already a shoo-in to win a fourth presidential term. But a ban on Russia taking part in the Winter Olympics is likely to make support for him even stronger, by uniting voters around his message: The world is against us…

You said in Putin's message he used the phrase "The world is against us" this seems to work well with "the people" in dictatorships, look to Zimbabwe and Turkey.

Re: Russia Banned

So If Russia is banned from the Winter Olympics, why are they allowed to participate in the next USA elections?
