Of course, the US Olympic team includes athletes who have served drug suspensions.So there are very few clean hands in sport these days.Apparently, the Head of the Russian Wrestling Federation struck a Russian female wrestler in the face after she lost the Gold Medal match to a Polish wrestler.

Kovalev, 53, pleaded guilty to wire fraud involving financial institutions in connection with a scheme that included the purchase of at lease 30 properties, according to the U. However, this is not the first time that Russia has tried to support a particular Presidential candidate. We have seen corrupt boxing judges, phony robbery claims, green swimming pools, doping accusations, and severed body parts found at competition sites.

In 1948, Stalin supported Progressive Party candidate Henry Wallace. However, this story from the wrestling competition seems very typical.

No country seems to be immune to doping; the American sport of baseball was severely impacted by steroid use, and we all know that Cycling is rife with drug cheats.

As far as the Olympics are concerned, the East Germans have been documented as using steroids as far back as the 1960's.

On the positive side, the same computer contained information that indicated that Mr. doping and sport are so much in the news lately, it might be the right time to focus on Yulia Stepanova, the Russian athelte who notified the proper authorities about the state-sponsored doping in Russia. trial has begun for Roman Seleznev, who has been accused of stealing credit card information from several U.

Stepanova, who was formerly a member of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency, have been providing information on Russian doping since 2014.While she competes for Russia, Efimova actually lives in Los Angeles and trains at the University of Southern California.Thus, it seems unlikely that Efimova is part of a Russian state-sponsored doping scheme (Russian Sacramento can't say that Efivoma is innocent, however). you have been watching the Olympic Games at all this past week, you have doubtless noticed that allegations of drug cheating have been widespread.
