WADA IC Report Response: Words, Words, Words, A Little Action & A Woeful History

Two of the first casualties of the WADA IC report: Lamine Diack, left, and Grigory Rodchenkov

The International Olympic Committee has suspended Lamine Diack as an honorary member and said it was ready to strip medals from any Russian athletes found guilty of doping and consider retesting samples from the Sochi Olympics; Thomas Bach gives a soft response that lets Russia know the door to Rio 2016 is still open; and USADA head Travis Tygart says the IC report shows how the “Olympic Dream has been turned into a nightmare”

And Vladimir Salnikov (former swimmer, olympic champion and president of Russian Swimmer Federation) has nothing to declare?

Craig Lord

I would imagine not, Jorge: that would be in keeping with the status of FINA Bureau member. Besides, what is there to say about 20-plus positives doping tests as laid out in this article in the sport he governs alone. Quite clear that he is presiding over a big problem and rotten culture and allowing Lovtsova, a two-time ban in tow, to be winning national titles in a sport she should have by now been barred from for life, along with those in the shadows of her case(s).

Lanfranco badia

For charity: the Wada has slept among two pillows when in 2003 the doctor Wade Exum, the control’s manager anti-doping of the Olympic Committee of the United States has revealed and then documented with 30 000 pages of documents the cases of positiveness of the American athletes (over 100), covered by the American Olympic committee.

COVERED… Not “open” 🙂

Among these besides Carl Lewis (positive for efedrina, pseudoefedrina and fenilpropanolamina in the 1988), Joe DeLoach, Andre Phillips, Mary Joe Fernandez, Alexi Lalas.florence griffith.larry myricks and others, to the Olympiads of seul 1988 are taken the weakest expiatory head of the doping well johnsson to hide the 12 athletes dopati targatii made uses among which the great Carl Lewis how disgusting

And today it flutters as a gone crazy goose when he treats Russia the WADA Non Deserves Some Credit For Other The Executives Of This Presumed Organ ANTIDOPING Sono All Of Mother English Language

P.S. CORRECT SIG GRAIG ON THE SWIMMER LOVTSOVA TWICE FOUND POSITIVE THEREFORE HAD TO BE DISQUALIFIES TO LIFE MA MI I BECOME RABID WHEN IN MY SPORT (LIGHT ATHLETICS) IPER DOPATI SEES AMERICAN ATHLETES THAT YOU/THEY ARE SAVED BY THE WADA, JUSTIN GATLIN KNOWS?

GRAIG, I THERE HAVE BEEN IN THE UNITED STATES AND I HAVE SEEN WITH MY EYES AS THE STEROIDIS ERANO FREELY SOLD IN THE COLLEGE
THE WADA VUOLE TO DISQUALIFY RUSSIA FOR 2 YEARS? WELL PROVIDED THAT’ AS MANY DOES HIM WITH USA È IL KENYA IT IS PERHAPS BRAZIL IT IS THEN CHINA IN THE SWIMMING IT IS ABLE’ TO BE A FEW BELIEVABLE

Craig Lord

All nations are responsible for their own sports communities, Lanfranco – and Russia is certainly not alone: you’re absolutely right. Any who test positive once with no extenuating circumstances accepted by those (independent) folk who must decide should be barred for life; any who fall foul twice should be banned for life without recourse to any arbitration. And that no matter where they come from in the world. Worth noting, of course, that what it is yet to be proven anywhere beyond Russia that such fraud and corruption and cheating as that described runs all the way from the podium to the highest offices/laboratories/security services and government positions/decrees as we appear to be witnessing in the case of Russia. “Systematic doping” takes many forms, of course.
