Default Russian Bobsledder Wore "I Don't Do Doping" T-Shirt in Training, Fails Doping Test

Quote:
A second Russian athlete has failed a doping test at the Pyeongchang Games, a day before the International Olympic Committee’s executive board is to decide whether to reinstate the country for Sunday’s closing ceremony.

Russian Bobsled Federation president Alexander Zubkov told The Associated Press on Friday that a drug-test sample that pilot Nadezhda Sergeeva gave on Sunday was positive.
Quote:
At the time, she was training in a T-shirt with the words “I Don’t Do Doping.” Sergeeva used to compete in track and field as a heptathlete before switching sports in 2010.

It is the fourth doping case of the games. Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky was stripped of his bronze medal Thursday after testing positive for the banned substance meldonium. Slovenian hockey player Ziga Jeglic and Japanese speedskater Kei Saito also left the games after testing positive.

Really really hope they don't get reinstated for the Closing Ceremony.

He can't help himself I guess, it's systematic. They are trained to juice up, when the juice is there, he instinctively reached for it, doesn't matter if it'll help his performance or not.

it may have been more helpful if he had used a corn broom instead. his opponents rocks could have then been wrecking on junk on the ice all game long.
