IOC eases Olympics doping ban against Russians

IOC eases Olympics doping ban against Russians.

The IOC has eased its ban on Russian athletes from the Rio Games following accusations of state-run doping, sports officials say.

 The International Olympic Committee has eased its ban on Russian athletes from the Rio Games following accusations of state-run doping, sports officials said Wednesday.

The World Sailing Federation said it had decided to end a ban on Russian 470 class contender Pavel Sozykin after receiving the "new guidance" from the IOC.

The IOC sent out a statement on Monday to the 28 federations that run the summer Olympics sports to ease the way that the report by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) should be interpreted, officials said.

It had previosly said that any athlete "implicated" in the state-run doping revealed in the McLaren report should be excluded from the Rio Olympics.

"The IOC has indicated that an athlete should not be considered as 'implicated' if the McLaren list does not refer to a prohibited substance which would have given rise to an anti-doping rules violation," said the sailing federation.

It said that Sozykin was named in the McLaren report "in connection with the Disappearing Positive Methodology", or manipulation of samples, "the report did not include specific information as to whether the positive test occurred in-competition or out-of-competition."

It added that the substance Sozykin was accused of taken "would not have resulted in a sanction."

World Sailing also said Sozykin "has had at least two subsequent anti-doping tests with no adverse results."

It said that if further investigations find Sozykin guilty of an offence any results he obtained since October 2014 would be disqualified.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
