Editorial and Olympic essay: why the Russian doping crisis cannot be compared to the bad stuff in Turkey, Kenya or anywhere else. We are looking at a different comparison: State Plan 14:25.

Let the voices of Evgeny Korotyshkin and like minds win the day; let the youth of Russia understand that a price has been paid for rotten, corrupt practices among those running the show; grant the youth of Russia the power to turn round and say to the coach, the doctor, the local official waving a funding cheque in one hand and a syringe in the other: “stick it where the Sun don’t shine”. I’m competing clean – and so is my country
