    Congarts Poland, excellent job
  2. The World Games 2017

    And Russians could be on swedish place, if referee dsq'ed Lindgren for crushing into British in 19 heat
  3. The World Games 2017

    Poland is going really well tonight, only Emil is fighting for us ;(
  4. The World Games 2017

    Seems that official stream in a first day will not cover korfball, air sports and bowling; there was a link to watch the first one, what about other two? (at least there will be medal round in women's bowling not steamed)
  5. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Zakarin can also be added to the list of people who won't participate. 3. The ROC is not allowed to enter any athlete for the Olympic Games Rio 2016 who has ever been sanctioned for doping, even if he or she has served the sanction. Lol, people are sick of Efimova, I'm sick of Gatlin and Gay. But these guys will participate and fight for the medals. About volleyball - I think that Russia will participate, president of FIVB had said about it earlier.
  6. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Yeah, I've read that letter. If I'm not mistaken, he didn't get any answer? One more note from Russians. You said about anger of Russian sports fans - yes, many of us have that feeling. In the end it's hard to believe anyone about this deal. Of course, as every person, I wait for positive ending of the story, but things are going worse and worse. I also waited for some actions from WADA to build anti-doping control in Russia by itself(or some documents how it should be done), but there are none of them and it's the worst thing in all the story. It's easy to destroy and hard to build. If we talk about possibility of reality of that story - that can be true(but seems that in some diiferent way than it was shown in the report). In Russia sport is one of the ways to the richness - for Olympic gold medal you can get 200000$(!!!) and new Mercedes(!!!) from the government. For usual sportsperson these money is enermous. More than that, nearly all professional sport in Russia is sponsored by the government. And when somebody becomes an athlete and goes to that glory and money, there IS a chance he will try to cheat. Think - what can you do, if once you can get a chance to get all that money(and after that there is high possibility you will stay become popular through all your life)? A few of the athletes, unfortunately, choose the wrong way. But sorry, I don't see any connection between that and people who not only compete, but know that they're Russians and try to defend themselves any way they can. The thread is still opened, ask, if you want to.
  7. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Oh, IOC decided to cancel presumption of innocence of Russian athletes about doping. So, should athlete by himself go to foreign ADA and tell officers there to take test from him?)) Because it's unusual situation and we need to know how it should work(do they mean all sportspeople from every sport? Should, for exmaple, Russian speedway(or in any other motorsport) team do something in that situation?
  8. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    In real life I have some connection with Russian national speedway team (Polish guys should know what it is), and even riders write that they are a bit scared how it can influence on them (but to be honest, there is no connection between them and IOC, cause we would never see motorsports in Olympics).
  9. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    I would add that even in most Russian-hating newspapers there it is everywhere written that number of proofs and facts is close to zero, and the point of discussion shouldn't be "if Russia should be disqualified", but " if that story is true".
  10. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Please, tell us the facts now, we're waiting. Hollywood-style stories are not the facts. We have mentioned earlier strange table with interesting numbers (with no dates or any additional info) What else?
  11. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    The majority of Russians would thank IOC for that decision, lol)) Mutko seems to be the worst Russian sports minister ever, even without that doping story.
  12. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Even if we let that all these things COULD happen. It is known that the most problematic sports for doping in Winter Olympics are skiing and biathlon, but Russia had worse(!) results in biathlon than in Vancouver and nearly the same in skiing. A bit "ineffective" strategy for such "powerful doping country" as Russia, isn't it?
  13. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    And don't you think, that all that story can be simple fairy tale? Through all the season the same athletes(do we talk about people who take part in not only one competition, right?) did tests in foreign countries in competitions, had top results and weren't caught. I have mentioned earlier that even now we don't have proofs for that "wonderful strategy" of FSB, and also FSB is made at first so clever and so stupid later. Sorry, I can hardly believe it.
  14. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Oh, more Russian haters in the thread. To be honest - if WADA really wanted to clean sport in Russia, they should do totally different things: 1) Tell EVERY story of these scary anonymous Russian dopers(today we have no new of them) 2)Totally ban RUSADA, make all anti-doping work about Russian athletes outside of Russia and in that time try to make new clean agency inside of it with British, American - anyone who knows what should be done(today we have nearly no kind of this work) It's known that more names - less place for political rumours and discussions. But now we have only words about total(of course) disqualification and some clouds above events with Russian medals.
  15. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2016 & 2017)

    Skiing and snowboarding are also under one federation, but they are divided. So that doesn't work.
