I'm glad Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo is taking a strong stand against Putin's invasion.

The IOC, by it's nature as a scam that robs cities of their wealth for the benefit of corporate sponsors, only makes decisions based on politics and the benefit of their members.

On a side note: Hidalgo's also been fantastic on other issues such as urban planning and ending car-dependence in Paris: reducing traffic, improving walkability, bike-ability, air quality, etc. Much to the dismay of a minority that wants to live in an American-style hellscape of freeways and parking lots.

Hidalgo is a great mayor,who really cares about her capital city.She stands up to corporate shills,who would exploit the area for short term financial gain,at the expense of the long term consequences for the local taxpayers.

Unlike some...

S. Africa was banned for Aparteid and it's athletes as well.

This is no different.

That Russia cheats as an instrument of state policy is the cherry on the top on the argument for banning them.

If Putin gains any entertainment, then limits that allow Russian athletes to compete have failed. Block them from all sports where their Olympic and anti-doping agencies have dragged their feet at all on determining the truth. Russia is gaming the IOC. This needs to stop.
