Official IOC policy is that no athlete should be punished or barred from competing solely because of the passport that they carry.

Official IOC policy is to take as much money as they can and leave everyone else in the dust.

Bach's motto - "Show me the money."

Bach's motto - "Show me the money."

Pretty much.

The Russian team’s motto is ‘Show me the syringe’?

No nation that has practiced dipping as an instrument of state policy should be allowed to compete ESPECIALLY one that then interfered in the subsequent investigation.

And dictators like Mini-me draw domestic support from atheists' success.

No Russia in the games until they own up, stop dropping on a national level and get out of Ukraine.

So, no Russia for the foreseeable future.

"no athlete should be prevented from competing just because of their passport".

Get a different passport or stay home.

We know it's all about the $$$ for the crooked IOC.

If these notorious drug-addled athletes are allowed to compete - it will be under the white flag as Russian and Belarus athletes are at the Australian open.

If people don't like what the IOC is doing they should boycott the Olympics that would send them a message.
