So in these past days we've had:

- Ethiopian marathon runner
- Swedish/Ethiopian middle distance runner
- Two Ukrainian biathletes
- Russian cyclist
- Russian short track speed skater
- Russian long track speed skater
- Russian volleyball player
- Russian tennis player
- Russian figure skater

That's a pretty diverse list of sports...

The Sharapova case is interesting - she says she has been taking this medication for 10 years and only as of 1st Jan 2016 has it been illegal, according to Sharapova she was unaware it had been added to the list. If she was to be banned, this would be a big scalp for Russia - even the most famous of their sport stars are doped - this could dispel the arguments that many innocent Russians will be unfairly impacted if they were banned from Rio, as even the most famous Russian sports people aren't clean. 

I hope that the IAAF are watching this carefully and now decide to officially ban Russia from the Olympics in a few months time - they are not cleaning up their act and doping is spreading into many other sports in Russia. Send a strong message now or it will be the end of clean sport in Russia.
