IOC, therefore, makes their decisions on unproven allegations and more than likely is influenced by political pressure from other countries. That's where I see the problem - where politics spill into sports.


Could you answer why Russian's were swapping out urine samples.

Once again, these are allegations. Made by a person who received financial compensation for it. And received a visa to the United States. Sounds like he had a lot to gain from making these allegations.

It doesn't look good for Russians, but it doesn't look good for IOC either.

Not sure why sanctioning bodies even fight over this kind of stuff

Just run a "stock" class and an "open" or "modified" class
problem solved.

Bet we'd see some pretty amazing events then.
