    The women's 10,000m race was won beating a dirty world record by 14 seconds that has stood since 1993 by a proven doper.
    The second 5k would have been a world record in its own right.
    Hmmmm.

    C'mon now rich, she'd run the distance once before on the track, that's plenty experience to be turning up and smashing the world record and becoming 'lympic champion in her 2nd race. I do it all the time...

    The BBC pundits are an absolute joke. Deniers all. Celebrating the new record and the new 'lympic champion yesterday without any hint of suspicion was sickening. They need to grow up and start naming doping rather than fudging round it. "Shrouded in controversy" seems to be their way of saying "dodgy dopers"

    If I was her I'd be fecking off quicksmart to somewhere far far away and never answering the door or going out again!

    I wonder if BBC coverage will mention any hint of "MoBot" and doping?

    Is indeed, and rode in the Olympic road race (though DNF'd) - but the Zielinski brothers are Polish weightlifters and tested positive for Nandrolone.

    The hubris of the Russians is almost beyond belief. Do they have no sense of shame?
    To blame their disgrace on Macchiavellian political shenanigans (that's a phrase I don't often use!) is more than irritating.

    I thought the unrepentant ex-doper Zabelinskaya making lofty proclamations after the women's RR about Russia showing the world they could win clean was a touch ironic, not to say hypocritical.
