    Will they be able to get it past the public where the Olympics has taken a brand battering due to these past games. Not sure they will
     
    Also in terms of ratings I think IOC might well push for SLC for 2030 to try the Winter Olympics ratings well again in the USA.

    The IOC would never scrap one of the most popular sports no matter how corrupt and doped the governing body is.

    Well it might get his ban reduced from 4 to 2 if he provides the supplements and he can prove they were contaminated with both substances but it won’t save his teammates medal or his chance of representing GB again without further legal action.

    Imagine if we find out Tandara and Ujah got it from the same source. 
     
     
    One of the British papers is bound to try and imply he was poisoned by Italy or Russia or China or any random country. It feels the obvious route the press will go down. I mean the daily Mail article on Ujah calls the investigation into Jacobs a doping probe.

    The rotation system sucked when it was happening with fencing (thank God fencing has all three team events now) and it sucks with shooting, too.

    To not run the rest of the season makes me think he knows he won’t be caught back home and would be protected by some form of corrupt national doping agency. Athletes times don’t normally drop that quickly if he didn’t actually dope for the rest of the year.

    How much notice do other athletes get of teammates testing positive - I presume p not much as Zhanell Hughes was on Instagram less than a hour ago posting pics which I really doubt he would do if he knew what was about to be announced.

    Rumours that the Paralympics will be cancelled this week due to cases rising in Tokyo and the government popularity continuing to drop.

    Orangehair43 reacted to Grassmarket in Post Games Analysis | How do you analyse your country's performance at Tokyo 2020?   
    For  pretty much a 9/10.  Almost every sport exceeded expectations. Only Rowing was a disappointment with internal political struggles producing an under-prepared team. Shooting lost a medal favourite, Amber Hill, to COVID. Taekwondo list another medal favourite, Jade Jones to nerves & having to fight an opponent from a merged weight category.  No Gold in Athletics, but Athletics is going through an era of very high standards.
     
    Otherwise, everyone far exceeded expectations. Optimistic predictions were for 15 Gold, 50 Medals total, top 10 overall.  Instead 22G, 65 total - more than London 2012 - and 4th overall.  Many new or unknown sports like BMX, Mountain Biking & Modern Pentathlon were introduced to the British public. Established sports like Swimming & Cycling created a new generation of fans.  Many of our best competitors will be going forward to Paris, so there is lots to look forward to.

    For any events you fail or can’t afford  to get tickets for try the Paralympics. It was how I got to experience the main stadium during the London Olympics at an incredible cheap price for a night packed with finals and royal guests,

    I think with relays they should introduce a rule that says all appeals must be done within say 10-15 mins and after that the result is official no matter what.
