..huh ?..
« on: December 06, 2017, 02:14:10 PM »
.
what am I missing here ? 

the IOC is banning russia from this coming winter olympics - because of widespread doping (of their athletes) - but the IOC says the russian athletes can compete, just not under the russian flag

uh, I don't give a hoot about the olympics but I'm simply not understanding this decision

Its actually pretty simple.  IOC is punishing the State of Russia, not their athletes directly. 

As such, Singapore, Nigeria or some shi+hole country might have the winning hockey or bobsled or biathlon teams.
Look for white skinned, blue-eyed athletes from numerous African countries.
