  3. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    So there will be a decision on 6 Russian cross country skiers who competed in Sochi after a hearing next month. Some of you may already know they are... I won't mention names here but if they are found guilty only one Russian medal will remain from the sport in Sochi

    Same thing happened before Rio. Didn't work then

  8. Mohammed Hadid. the father of supermodel Gigi Hadid, attempted to represent Jordan in the demonstration sport of speed skiing in 1992. Despite what it is claimed on the internet he did not compete
  9. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    I would be shocked if they were suspended. They might lose a medal from the tournament but the national team won't be punished and the players won't be banned
  10. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    So 95 out of 96 are cleared. If this is a random sample then it is very bad news for WADA. However my guess is the cases completed so far are the ones that appear in the McLaren report but have almost no evidence to support them. They look at the weak cases first, get rid of them then move on to more serious cases. Still over 1000 left. The worst possibility for Russia is if WADA can prove the evidence once existed but has now has been destroyed. If you can't punish a dirty athlete then you have to punish the whole federation if it helps them to cheat
  11. British aerials skier Lloyd Wallace is in a coma after suffering a head injury in training today. He finished in the top 20 at the last World Championships
  12. If USA and Canada both qualify teams at the World Championships in eventing things get very complicated. There are 550 riders in the North American rankings. All USA or Canada. Mexico is in the Central/South Zone
  13. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    To be honest. It's more than the MPCC is deliberately underestimating cycling cases to make other sports look bad
  14. Doping Cases and Bans Thread

    I don't trust these statistics to be real.
  15. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Very interesting. Runner of Nigerian heritage passes to runner of Iranian/Moroccan ancestry to white English to runner of Jamaican ancestry and they win gold. All the racists in Britain went silent.
  16. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    I think Shubenkov may well be disqualified and the Serbian awarded a place in the semi-finals. Arm swung out of lane and interfered with the Serb

  20. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    I'm sure they will change the rules to allow her to compete. And maybe the Brazilian will also be allowed to race (as the best South American) - making a maximum of 6
  21. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    Has Henriques definitely been confirmed as an entrant? Her qualifying time was set in a race that wasn't approved as a qualifying competition so the IAAF would have to change the rules to get her in.
  22. Athletics IAAF World Championships 2017

    There is also a doubt whether Henriques' time is acceptable
  23. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    2 Chinese, 2 Americans The world record holder from Portugal has to wait as her time was not set in an official qualifying event Probably they will find ways on getting more to compete ib the end
  24. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    Rumour is that some of the American threatened to sue the IAAF. At the moment only 4 have qualified to take part.
  25. Athletics 2017 Discussion Thread

    Based on its wish to ensure gender equality on the field of play, the IAAF Council has decided to create a new 50km race walk competition for women at the IAAF World Championships London 2017. Scheduled to start at the same time as the men's event, the women’s 50km race walk in London will have separate results and prize money. The entry standard is 4:30:00 to be achieved by Tuesday 25 July midnight Monaco time. In order for athletes to be allowed to finish the race in London, they shall be required to start the last two-kilometre lap within the time limit of 4:17:00. IAAF Member Federations have been advised of the decision along with the qualifying standard. “IAAF Council’s decision to create a new 50km race walk competition for women with separate results and prize money at the World Championships in London follows the 2016 IAAF Race Walking Team Championships in Rome, where one female athlete from the USA joined her four male teammates,” said IAAF President Sebastian Coe. “There has been equal prize money for men and women at the IAAF World Championships since the introduction of financial rewards in the early 1990s and this decision brings gender quality in terms of competition opportunity too. “But we must acknowledge this has been a last-minute decision based upon the request of a small group of athletes,” added Coe. “Therefore, to ensure the long-term credibility of the World Championships, we will follow the recommendation of the Race Walking Committee and assess the development of the event to determine whether there are sufficient numbers of athletes and countries legitimately interested.” IAAF
