Default Entire Russian Olympic team banned from winter Olympics

It's about time. Russian Olympic athletes been doping since the 80's. At one point back then, virtually every member was on some kind of steroid, and often got away with it with help from the Kremlin. Now, the entire freaking Russian Olympic team has been banned this winter. Long time coming. Congrats to the Olympic committee.

If any Russians want to compete, they'll have to wear a neutral uniform, hahaha!

Good.

There's actually a really fascinating Netflix documentary about this called Icarus... definitely worth watching IMO.

During the height of the cold war, the USSR even had the KGB involved to try and ensure a mighty Russian Olympic victory over the US.
