Russian Athletics banned from Rio 2016

As someone who loves sport in all its forms and varieties,
someone who firmly believes in Olympism and the Olympic ideals, and that sport has the potential of bringing together people of all nations, creeds, cultural and social backgrounds, and contributing to building a more peaceful and better world,
someone who sees the urgent need that clean athletes and the integrity of sport itself be protected against cheats, corrupt officials, and all those who seek to abuse athletes for their own financial, political and criminal purposes,
someone who will never never accept that we could eventually lose the fight against Doping,
I have only two words to say to the IAAF Council:

Thank you!

 

Press Release IAAF Council Meeting, Vienna – IAAF

PS. I will add a more thorough reaction to the Council’s decision within the next few days, but I just had to share my feelings with you at this point…
