World Anti-Doping Agency Calls for Russia Ban
It’s a juicing plot. The agency’s new report found that Russian Olympians and other prestigious athletes have been using illegal performance-enhancing drugs in what it described as a pervasive culture of steroid use. It cited the London Olympics as just one event that was ”sabotaged” by Russian authorities’ unwillingness to do anything about doping amongst its athletes — and it wants Russia banned entirely from track and field competitions and from the Rio Olympics, as well as lifetime bans on multiple coaches and athletes. Russia now has until the end of the week to respond.
