    Absolute disgrace - clearly the Russians have been cheating on a scale of EPIC proportions (State sponsored),
    they should have a BLANKET BAN.

    What on earth is this world coming to? allowing this to happen.

    The doped up super humans the Russians have created are probably the only people who can survive events in the toilet water.

    From what I've read, the Absolute Disgrace is Rio's preparedness for the Games - water full of chemicals, feces, brain-eating bacteria, half-finished Construction, displaced residents, unpaid Security that has been stealing, and unpaid Police on top of that. Oh, also Zika. You could wonder why the IOC gave the Games to Rio...

    Poor Stepanowa - what a disgrace. Ruined life, twice.

    Exactly. I've finished watching a video of the sites, lodgings etc. The latter is a shame.

    I'm not watching the Olympics 2016 if ANY Russian athlete is involved, just on principle.
