Such surprising countries, nobody would have thought they'd do anything they're not supposed to be doing. Oh well, I've got a feeling there's still one or two rather notorious countries left who might entertain us with a positive bit of urine here and there in Anaheim :p

This is a big news. that was the right decision, I'm glad to not see our country in this list ! we had a bad record in this case but at least in past few years they took it serious. even though advanced doping with higher technology doesn't exist in Iran, so if an Iranian uses something he will get caught soon and not 4 years later ! :d

 

this will improve our results in the World Champs even though since USA is hosting the event and with the travel ban I'm not sure if we can even participate ! our athletes are already in Dubai for visa things.

Why not Iran? They are the same like Russia and China.

Iran haven't 3 or more doped in the last two Olympics. It's the only criteria that the IWF decided to use.
