WHO REALLY THOUGHT IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT?


It was a while ago now but there was a TV advert for butter where an inquiring young mind asked his Mum what was Butter made from to be told Cream from a pasture fed cow and a little salt. child then asked what was Margarine made from, Oh go ask your Dad he's the chemist.

The quadrennial Olympic circus starts in a few days and I simply do not care any more as the first person a competitor needs on their team is a freakin chemist.

Now performers need to have every advantage to win and diet, hydration, fitness and every aspect of preparation  must come together to prevail.
Sheesh how many NZ watchers were convinced when that Ukranian Lardo beat Valerie Adams four years ago, there was as much visual evidence for anyone with a passing interest to suspect it was a crock. Either the dumb bitch was too tight to have a chemist available or he/she /it  was a moronic retard.

World anti doping agency released a report recently that put the microscope on, in particular the Russian Federation.
Now their findings did not center on incompetence, idiocy, naivety or rat cunning by individuals it laid out a compelling case against a systematic national construct to have Russian competitors indulging in performance enhancing substances and a massive state enabling coverup that included the Russian security services up to their smelly hairy armpits in full on assistance during the Sochi Winter Olympics, even detailing their systems and actions.

Today when the IOC could have made a difference and stepped away from the scandalous behaviours we have witnessed from FIFA and other corrupt outfits that have tarnished almost all top level international sports administrations it was just another cop out

Did they do what was right, hell no they side stepped it and caved into Vlad the Exhaler, and the cacophony of very loud voices of sponsors.

I am an undisguised sceptic and I struggle to accept that Jamaica with its population just over half NZ's can field a formidable men's 400 metre relay team that can defeat the US with its access to the same genetics and in far greater numbers.

So to the grand egoes of the IOC and I include our very own Mike Stanley in that, you have no balls so retrieve them and bugger off, leave the space for people who can and must get the place cleaned up.
History is littered with mugs who thought they could survive drug abuse in their search for Olympic Gold and died doing it.

Our young athletes deserve better.

First error in this post, a minor point. but the woman was actually Belorussian

"Now their findings did not center on incompetence, idiocy, naivety or rat cunning by individuals it laid out a compelling case against a systematic national construct to have Russian competitors indulging in performance enhancing substances and a massive state enabling coverup that included the Russian security services up to their smelly hairy armpits in full on assistance during the Sochi Winter Olympics, even detailing their systems and actions."

But this egregious statement is beyond the pale - you have neither read the report nor examined the compelling evidence, Indeed you are just regurgitating what you have been told by the media and because you are a brainwashed bigot believe that Russian people are sinister, unscrupulous cheats unquestionably swallowed the narrative you have been fed hook line and sinker.

Thankyou Andrei for the correction and thankyou also for the abuse, It makes my day.

Yes the Russian people are a great nation but that they have a remnant manipulative bunch of morons operating under State protection as an appointed political power that goes all the way back to the Tsar's secret police through the KGB and today the FSB almost always under the patronage of the government enabling, is a long established stain on your wonderful people.

Are you seriously suggesting there has been no state involvement in Russian drugs in sports, you need to get out more.

IOC findings predictable.
Not the first time it's travelled this path.

Irony is the number of professional golfers who have bailed in this the first time the sport was included. So much for the "Olympic spirit".

Well they have caught and banned quite a few drug cheats - including those now feted as the heroic "whistleblowers" who are the star witnesses against the authorities that sanctioned them
