Russians Banned From Paralympics
Is the entire Russian athletic community on PEDs?
First the Olympic ban.
Russian athletes have been banned from competing in the upcoming Paralympic Games as punishment for the country running a doping operation.
The International Paralympic Committee's blanket ban on Russia is in sharp contrast to the earlier decision by the IOC to allow individual sports to decide whether Russians could compete in the Olympics.
The Paralympics organization directly condemned the Russian state's involvement, while stopping short of blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin.
