The original article had an Arina, whom I know, and another Surkova, called Anna, at the bottom of the list.

No just people know that Russian swimmers shouldn’t be blamed for past swimmers or athletes actions

i was joking…sort of. I wonder how many olympic athletes as a whole take peds, and if there are ways to beat the tests. For all i know it could be a widespread thing that most of us don’t know about.

There will always be more money put into doping than there is anti-doping….. in any country.

There is no Russian team. Only ROC and only because CAS have no balls.

I thought Russia doesn’t actually have an Olympic team this year. You know, because of all the doping.

Thank you for posting that link. Boy does that seem toothless. After a search and replace in the results, there really was no penalty. I’m disappointed.
Edit: in all fairness to my ignorance, the headline of the story

is misleading at best.
