IAAF Suspends Russia

IAAF bans Russia from the coming Olympic Games

because of doping in the past.

Without Russia competing means

there will be some monopoly of the medals.

 This implies that the Games

will not be international in structure.

This being so, it demeans the merit

of the medals that will be awarded.

The IAAF announced that Russian players who are “clean”

may compete

as long as they do not do this under the Russian flag.

This implies that there actually are Russian players

who qualify but are banned just the same

because they’re Russians.
