    And incredibly enough it was an athlete from their curling team! What gives with these guys. Does the thought of sport and competition create some kind of Pavlovian response that has them reaching intuitively and brainlessly for the medicine cabinet? Amazing. You couldn’t script this.

    Whole football club charged with providing drug-tester-evading incorrect details to the "whereabouts" system http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43132301

    But of course, this doesn't mean there's any suspicion of institutional doping or anything, oh no.
     
  8. Just an "administrative oversight". Move along now, nothing to see here. Game of skill...

    Here’s a picture of the OAR bobsleigher who’s just failed the drugs test, taken after the team arrived at the Olympics. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I think she just might be innocent.

  14. They should get "on message" and just call them Doping Athletes from Russian

    Russia have now been allowed back by the IOC.
    Seems odd given the failure of Russian “clean athletes” at the Winter Olympics.
