Yes, funny how nobody cries over the truly racist organization of Saint Louis 1904.   Yes, the 1936 were shadowed by Nazi propaganda; so were the 1968 with the Tlatelolco massacre, the 1980

Here are the first two parts of a series of articles I've written on the 1980 Moscow Olympics.  https://theolympians.co/2020/07/19/the-1980-moscow-olympics-part-1-the-american-boycott/ https://th

Olympics at Sports Reference got closed today.   I can't help but feel responsible because I asked for one correction yesterday and perhaps reminded them about their intent to close the site

Awaiting the CAS decision on Russia today (finally). Knowing their "expertise" it's probably going to be the pathetic no flag, but allow the athletes to compete ruling. 

And you would be correct about that.. 

Russia’s ban from Olympics, world championships now two years

 

Similar to 2018, they can complete so long as "Neutral Athlete" is as prominent on their uniforms as "Russia"

here we go with another farce...:nopompom:

 

those are just non-sanctions...:finger:

 

I don't know if they were guilty or not, but if they were named guilty of what they were accused of, they should have been completely thrown out of the sports' world for at least 4 years (and at least 2 Winter and 2 Summer Games)...

 

so, in Tokyo we will have around 10% of the athletes competing under the neutral IOC Flag and Anthem (adding together Russia, Belarus and soon to be punished Italy we go over 1,000 people)...:yikes: :facepalm:

Belarus was announced by Thomas Bach himself last week...

 

Italy have enormous political problems, with our politicians trying to put their dirty hands on the sports Institutions (and money)...:hairpull:

 

and despite the repeated IOC's warnings, our government is doing absolutely nothing to correct this situation...:facepalm:

 

in 4/6 weeks time, if nothing is done, the IOC is going to punish also Italy...

Will we see Russian athletes giving up to go to the Olympics? I mean, because they cannot represent their country properly, and not because of doping stuation.

 

I remember something from Russian boxers saying that If they could not fight under Russian flag, then they were not going to the Olympics.

Bach was very clear that Belarusian athletes would still be allowed to compete under their flag for the time being. The IOC is only taking select actions against certain NOC officials, and the institution of the NOC.

well, for them it's a different situation and feeling...

 

they surely feel they're victim of some kind of injustice and they also have a strong patriotic feeling...so, they are always proud of representing their Country and show the world they're the best despite the Western ostracism (and they also have a regime that normally use sports success as a form of marketing)...

 

however, it might well be an option for some of their athletes to switch to other friend Countries, they normally do that to find some space when they feel they don't have chances to make their national team...so, why not doing anything similar in this circumstance?

 

in any case, nothing's going to upset/surprise me anymore...
