No love for Russia

A monumental day for Russian Winter Olympians as earlier today the IOC made the decision to ban Russia from the 2018 Winter Olymoics in Pyeongchang after they were exposed for systematic doping. The doping program is thought to have dated back since the 1960's , but in a strange twist some athletes will be allowed to compete and will be under the banner of Olympic Athlets From Russia which means no emblems and no national anthems. To really understand this whole issue you need to go back to the beginning to a documentary called "Icarus" which is most likely the reason Russia are in the position they are in.
