    Karma exists Loginov received a serious leg/knee injury during the Summer NCH and was hospitalized. Moreover he fell on his back. He's conscious but in pain shock.

    They were lucky that the opposite lane was clear. Thankfully everything is ok with Sleptsova's baby. Medvedtseva is ok, she's conscious and making jokes.
  5. Summer Universiade 2017

    Kyiv, Ukraine is already working on sending a host application for 2021 or 2023. We've already got 90% of needed venues.

    Pidhrushna interrupted her trainings with the team in France because her asthma came back. She went to Czech hospital again and then to Ukraine. She can join our team in December/January or end her career. EDIT: and Pidhrushna has just posted that everything is ok and she'll be back soon. woohoo

    She said: "it was a pressure that I didn't make it to the main team. I would have had another round of numerous qualifications in order to get to the Olympics. Yes, I would qualify but I'm not made of iron". I also suspect pregnancy but it was all planned obviously.

    All places in their Olympic team are usually distributed (and sometimes not in the fair way) before the Olympic season. She didn't make it so she lost her main motivation.

    Svetlana Sleptsova retired. Tomorrow will be her last competition.
  10. Summer Universiade 2017

    Some Russian-speaking man tried to bribe our basketball team so they would lose their game with Russia. Our team contacted police and reported this match-fixing attempt.
  11. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Russian state sports broadcaster dedicated the whole 1500m final to Semenya. And the "highlight" was... "She was dressed like a man at her wedding, what the hell is she doing in the women's sport?"

    Another junior WCH winner Arina Pantova switches her team to Russia.

    Thank god as long as it doesn't merge with a bunch of similar tricolor suits. Thankfully there's a cross on the left shoulder.
  14. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Both of them were taken off the plane, they were forced to give their national sportswear back. The team bosses won't submit their names to the actual start lists so they won't receive their bibs which means obvious DNS even if they'll be there. Zemlyak stayed at home in Rivne.
  15. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    And the scandal with Zemlyak & Povh gets to the new level. - Povh & Zemlyak are officially clear. - IAAF added both athletes to the WCH participants list. - Their doping tests were analized by the new IAAF sub-division. Not WADA. - It was taken 1 year ago in Amsterdam. - There was no anonymity. All the test tubes had names on them - That IAAF sub-division is not certified/authorizied to make any official statements or ban athletes. They didn't even say anything about ban. Lol. - They tested testosterone taken from urine (this is very amateurish/faulty/unprofessional method). Not from blood like it's supposed to be. - Their testosterone level is so abnormal according to those "tests" that it's impossible/unnatural for any woman. Considering they're in the doping pool they're tested regularly this fact on alone says a lot about that IAAF sub-division - Basing on these faulty tests the UAF (Ukrainian federation) suspended both athletes without having such right. Only IAAF (not that sub-division) and WADA are authorized to suspend an athlete in such case - The athletes/federation received mails only from a random person who's not associated with WADA. - Both athletes haven't even seen any official letter from IAAF/WADA for a week! (because such letter doesn't exist). They demanded UAF to show such letter. - Both athletes found out about their suspension in the airport! - Zemlyak confirmed that she will sue the UAF. - Different athletics federations from all over the world have already supported both athletes. - Both of them were under UAF pressure - UAF demanded their confession "I categorically will not sign that because I've got nothing to confess" - Zemlyak. - They have a full right to take part in the WCH still.
