By: Editorials | Published: December 7, 2017 1:30 The International Olympic Committee has now imposed a complete ban on Russia from competing in the 2018 Pyeongchang Games.

Hosting the Winter Olympics at Sochi, Russia exploited its home advantage to pierce a literal hole through the World Anti Doping Agency’s defences.

That the government allegedly helped carry out this cheating, wherein a third of Russia’s 33 medals went to athletes whose names appeared on a spreadsheet with details of the country’s doping plans, meant the complicity was complete.

The International Olympic Committee has now imposed a complete ban on Russia from competing in the 2018 Pyeongchang Games.
