Based on the latest Russian doping scandal, should Russia be banned from the upcoming Olympics?

 

If you haven't read much into it, this breaks it down pretty well: http://www.cnbc.com/...ng-scandal.html

Yes they should. However, politics might bail them out.

Russia lost its appeal Thursday against the Olympic ban on its track and field athletes, a decision that could add pressure on the IOC to exclude the country entirely from next month's Games in Rio de Janeiro.

 

 

 

I say the Track and Field athletes should be banned, but I would allow the rest with the understanding that any negative tests from ANY of them this Olympics, and they would be banned for the next Olympics in Japan. I imagine that'd light a fuel under them and would still allow most of them to compete. Not really fair to the white water rapids athletes to get kicked out b/c the T&F guys cant keep their hands off the needles.

Word is Russia as a whole will be banned and the athletes with their names cleared will still be able to compete but under the Olympic flag.
