The IOC is at it again

Postby Magnus Johansson » Tue Jan 23, 2018 10:35 am

The IOC has now decided that Sergey Ustiugov will not compete in the Olympic Games in South Korea. No reason announced. Swedish National Cross-Country Team coach Rikard Grip is surprised by the IOC, and even Swedish Television's politically very correct expert commentator Anders Blomqvist thinks it is remarkable.

Has Ustiugov ever tested positive?

In other news, men are allowed to compete as women - no surgery needed, just get one's "T" under the threshold.

It sounds like you believe these athletes did not use performance enhancing drugs.

No, he hasn't, just like the other Russian skiers.

Ha, ha! The confusion of our times is immense.

Honestly, I haven't been following the story all that closely. I wouldn't be at all surprised (if Russian athletes doped) but I'd feel better about it with at least one positive sample, especially for Ustiugov.
