Barred from the Olympics over allegations of systematic, state-sponsored doping between 2011 and 2015. If a clean athlete wants to compete they therefore have to compete as a neutral athlete representing no country. If any of those athletes wins any medals, record boos show that Russia won ZERO medals

Russia Banned from 2018 Olympics, Clean Athletes May Compete Under Neutral Flag | Bleacher Report

I remember during the 2016 Olympics, many athletes were banned and some, even those suspected of using steroids were allowed to compete. Years of cheating have finally caught up.

It is looking good for Norway in the Winter Olympics then. We have only a slight problem with asthmatic medication and some woman thinking taking a salva with steroids on her lips, but otherwise we are as clean and innocent as snow.
