Russian gymnasts NOT banned from the Olympics

Russia will not receive a blanket ban from Rio 2016 following the country’s doping scandal, an Olympic source has told the BBC.

Instead, the International Olympic Committee will leave it up to individual sport’s governing bodies to decide if Russian competitors are clean and should be allowed to take part.

Russia is corrupt. Systematic doping was approved all the way up to – I assume – the defacto dictator Putin. But I’m still happy Artistic, Rhythmic and Trampoline will get to compete in Rio.

The Russian girls are en route to Brazil now.
