    No problem for me Bergsma missed out, especially after his coach was all cheering and shouting of happiness when Kramer came in 2nd (Bergsma went in the heat after him)

    Even if the suspension isnlifted during the Olympics the medals won under OAR will not count as “Russian” for record keeping purposes.

    It currently is for alpine skiing. In snowboarding the top 16 from each course qualifies for the second preliminary round, and the top 16 combined times from both courses make it through.

    Doping Scandal Rocks Athletics 
     
    The Botswana Athletics Association (BAA) yesterday denied any knowledge that 400m athlete, Lydia Jele has tested positive for a banned substance
     

     
    The 400m athlete, who was part of Botswana’s team to the London World Championships in London, is said to have recently tested positive for a banned substance but authorities remained cagey with information.
    IAAF officials were not long ago in the country and tested the athlete out of competition.
    Sport Monitor is reliably informed that the athlete, who has represented the country at world competitions including the Olympics and World Championships, had opted not to take a sample B test, effectively admitting guilt.
    The country has faced increased doping cases after Amantle Montsho tested positive for a banned substance in 2014 and served a two-year ban, which ended in July.
     
    Rugby was also rocked when two players, Lesedi Cherry and Emmanuel Ntshiwa, failed a doping test last year.
    BAA public relations officer, Ipolokeng Ramatshaba told Sport Monitor yesterday that they have learnt about the doping reports surrounding the said athlete.
     
    We are not aware that Jele has tested positive to doping and we do not even know where she was tested,” Ramatshaba said.
    “At the moment, I cannot discuss the matter until we have been fully briefed on what is really going on.”
    He said there were no doping tests done at the London World Championships.
    A source said the matter is being kept a closely guarded secret until the results are determined.

    It's for the same morons that think being second at Risk means you did better than the person who finished third so they play in a way that forecloses their chances of being first.

    Probably the person who got the most points at the annual ISU Gala Skee-Ball tournament or something, judging by how logical the mass start format is.
