Russian Olympic Ban

The relevant authorities are dragging their heels on making this decision.

Looks like it may be put off until next Tuesday.

But I guess transferring large amounts of cash from a Russian account to a Swiss account discreetly can take time.

Re: Russian Olympic Ban

How un-corrupt is the whole Olympic set up anyway? Numerous articles found in Google seem to suggest so. I think the autocratic and totalitarian states must love it, as it gives them chance to show off their athletes' trueRoll eyes prowress.

I'm inclined to think Russia, such a state from well before the modern Olympics will be a long time before  changing to even the semi honesty of the rest of the world.

Yet Russia is a big beast; dare we test it too much?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
