This will be followed by a threat to build a wall around Alaska to keep those "cheating Russians" out of the country.:headbanger:

Very good documentary. Not sure why, outside the fact that Russia is now a partisan issue, anyone would think this was anything controversial.

Clean Russian athletes (i.e. those not previously implicated in doping) will compete under the Olympic flag. The sanctions for what was a state sponsored doping program would be something everyone here would have cheered a few years ago.

Now itís slugline includes a sad face.

That should be the decision of the team, not some Swamp fox.
