Russia has been barred from 2018 Olympics for mass doping. This is the first time a nation has been banned for doping.

Why do I feel this isn't the only time in the near future we're going to be seeing Russia caught breaking international rules?

I'm not mad though. Russia kicked out of the winter Olympics? Looks like it's gonna be a sweep for Canada.

Also, dat typo.

Will Russia even be around 900 years from now?

The USA and Norway, maybe even Germany may have something to say about Canada winning the medal count though.

But... who cares.

You just find out now? Russia has probably been doping for years.

Soo much bullshit, I mean it's Russia, the greatest of all greats

It’s so funny how insanely hardcore the Russians went to cheat at the Olympics, yet Americans think they weren’t involved with meddling in the election.

At first, I was confused but then I soon realized it was a mistake.

hasn't Russia been banned before, I know other countries have https://www.bustle.com/p/has-a-country-ever-been-banned-from-the-olympics-before-russia-was-slapped-with-unprecedented-penalties-6786324 who knows, conspiracy nuts might run with this could be an underlying attempt because of Russia's meddling where they don't belong, but catching their players doing the bad thing... but, in the past, there have been several banned for doping, not an entire country before (to my knowledge) but there have been individuals. don't follow nor care about this so I am in the dark about this sort of thing.

I wonder how many members of the IOC are going to mysteriously die or disappear between now and 2022.
