Under the ban, Russia’s flag, name and anthem would not be allowed at the Tokyo Games next summer or the Beijing Winter.
THE WEAPONIZATION OF ATHLETICS
Since the days of the anti-Great One propaganda surrounding the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, down through the recipricating 1980 & 1984 boycotts of the Russian and American Summer Olympics respectively, and up until the present day, geo-politics has often been injected into the quadrennial spectacles that are the Summer Olympic Games, the Winter Olympic Games, the World Cup of Football (Soccer), and various other events. With massive global audiences glued to theirTV’s, attempts to ruin the dreams of innocent athletes by playing politics with sports are as inevitable as they are disgraceful.
Dating back to the jubilant and peaceful reunification of the formerly “Ukrainian” Crimea Peninsula with the Russian Motherland, the past six years have witnessed an all-out Globalist assault aimed at Russian athletics — a propaganda campaign set against the dangerous backdrop of NATO’s ongoing “in-your-face” military build-up along Russia’s borders which, thanks solely to Donald Trump, has subsided. Nonetheless, it is the Deep State, not Trump, who control the various international sports bodies. In that shpere, the war against Putin’s Russia rages on.From the article:
Under the ban, Russia’s flag, name and anthem would not be allowed at the Tokyo Games next summer or the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022, though Russian athletes not implicated in doping are expected to be allowed to compete in the Olympics and other world championships, but only under a neutral flag.
The World Anti-Doping Agency also barred Russian sports and government officials from the Games and prohibited the country from hosting international events.”
1980 – 1984 – 2006
Athletes used as geo-political pawns.
June, 2015: FIFA (International Football/Soccer) President and “friend of Putin” Sepp Blatter is forced to resign after strongly defending “aggressor” Russia’s right to host the 2018 World Cup tournament.
March, 2016: FINA (International Swimming Federation) suspended Russian World Champion Yulia Yefimova for testing positive for meldonium. Meldonium had always been a legal supplement. Only in 2016 was it suddenly (and quietly)added to the banned substance lists of various sports. (here) Moreover, scientists who have taken a good luck at this alleged “performance enhancing” substance have even dismissed its “doping” effects as roughly equivalent to that of a strong cup of coffee.
April, 2016: After testing positive for meldonium, the EBU (European Boxing) stripped Russian boxing champion Igor Mikhalkin of his “light-heavyweight” championship title and banned him from boxing for 2 years. (here) We repeat, meldonium had always been legal. Only in 2016 was it suddenly added to the banned substance lists of various sports.
1. FIFA boss Sepp Blatters “bromance” with Putin was mocked by the western press.
2. World Champion Yefimova: suspended for testing positive for meldonium — only weeks after it was quietly added to list of banned substances.
3. World Champion Mikhakin: suspended for testing positive for meldonium.
April, 2016: Ice Skating pair Bobrova and Solovyov banned from World Championships due to the meldonium scam.
April, 2016: The ENTIRE Russian U18 (Under 18) Hockey Team was suspended and replaced with younger players after several players tested positive for meldonium. (here)
May, 2016: At the last minute, a heavyweight boxing championship fight between Alexander Povetkin and Black Americanhype job Deonte Wilder was cancelled because a Doctor Irene Goodman’s (cough cough) drug testing operation claimed to have found a microscopic trace of meldonium in Povetkin’s blood! (here)
1. Bobrova & Solovyov — meldonium & meldonium (here)
2. The meldonium trick was used to bait and replace the entire Russian U18 team with weaker, younger players. (here)
3. Povetkin was also meldoniumed. (here)
June, 2016: Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova received a 2-year suspension for innocently taking meldonium, which, we repeat, had always been legal. Like the boxer Mikhalkin and the swimmer Yefimova, she also appears to have been set-up by the World Doping Agency’s sudden ban (here). Meanwhile, professional tennis “looks the other way” at the obvious steroid use of Black American “female” tennis star Serena Gorilliams.
June, 2016: After Russian and British fans clashed at the European Cup in France, UEFA (European Football) issued a “suspended disqualification” of the Russian team, which means that one more misstep by Russian fans will disqualify the Russian team. Though the British fans were at least as responsible for the fighting, Britain was not disciplined.
Said Putin, sarcastically, of the controversy:
“I don’t know how 200 Russian fans could beat several thousand of the British.”
1. Sharapova was also “meldoniumed” — banned for 2 years while steroid-user Serena Gorilliams just keeps getting bigger, faster, and better at age 38 (very old for a tennis player).
2. English fans, notorious for their hooliganism, were just as violent as the Russian fighters. But only Russia was punished!
June, 2016: And finally, under the pretext of “doping violations,” the IOC (International Olympic Committee) banned theentire Russian Track & Field Team from the upcoming Summer Olympics to be hosted by Brazil — crushing the hopes and dreams of so many world class Russian athletes who had trained for many years. Of course, the IOC continues to ignore the international reality of performance-enhancing substances in sports.
Regular readers of The Anti-New York Times don’t need to be told what’s going on here. Thanks to the NWO gang, theCold War refuses to did a natural death, with Russian athletes — and only Russian athletes (guilty or not) — being caught in the middle of it.
Yes, Indeed. Killary Clinton wasn’t joking when she said:
“Russia (and China) will pay a price for standing up for the Assad regime (in Syria).”
Barring a dramatic, Q-Anonish reshaping of both the national and geopolitical power structure, after the age of Trump is over, it won’t be long before we go baco “Square 1” regarding U.S.-Russia tension. This war on its athletes tells us what’s to come if and when (((they))) reclaim the White House in 2020, 0r 2024.
An entire track & field team tarred with one broad brush and banned from the Olympics. Years of sacrifice and grueling training — cruelly flushed down the drain just weeks before their dreams could be realized.
