Russia is suspended, but these Russians can win Olympic gold



The ban on Russia's participation in the Olympics does not mean that Russian athletes cannot win medals in a number of sports disciplines in South Korea. Although the IOC decided to remove Russia as a sports country from the competition, he nevertheless allowed Russian athletes to participate in the Olympics.

IOC makes demands

The prerequisite is an invitation to Russian athletes from the IOC. And if they receive this invitation and go to South Korea, they must follow a number of rules.

They have no right to represent Russia and will act under the name of the United Arab Republic (Olympic athletes of Russia). The Russian anthem should not be performed if they win and there should not be a Russian flag at the awards ceremony.

To receive an invitation from the IOC, athletes must fulfill a number of requirements:

• the athlete must pass qualifying competitions to participate in the Olympics in accordance with the existing rules of the Olympic selection;

• the athlete has not previously been punished for doping (that is, if he was previously punished for this, he is not eligible to participate);

• an athlete before the Olympics must be tested in accordance with the instructions of the working group;

• The athlete must also undergo all other additional checks at the request of the working group.

At the end, the IOC determines whether a Russian athlete wishing to participate in competitions meets all these requirements.

Here are some of the Russian athletes who can be invited to the Games in Pyeongchang, where they can win gold:

Cross Country Skiing

Eight Russian skiers have already been suspended from the Olympics, as McLaren reports and IOC doping reports prepared by Denis Oswald, their names are associated with organized doping. The most famous of them are Alexander Legkov, Maxim Vylegzhanin and Evgeny Belov. But the Russians have a group of good young skiers who are not related to the doping scandal.

Thus, Sergey Ustyugov, Alexander Bolsunov and Alexey Chervotkin can receive an invitation from the IOC to participate in the Olympic Games. As for the Russian skiers, among them, strictly speaking, there are no applicants for medals.

Biathlon

Russia can put a decent team in the biathlon, although the IOC has removed many Russian biathletes who took part in the Sochi competitions from future Olympiads.

All these skiers have now left a great sport. Those who are currently speaking have nothing to do with the Sochi scandal. The most likely contender for gold is Anton Shipulin. Anton Babikov and Alexander Loginov, too, can one day intervene in this dispute over medals.

Skiing

Here Russia has weak traditions. But Alexander Khoroshilov in recent years, several times took place on the podium among the winners, and one day he may well be among the leaders.

Khoroshilov spoke in Sochi, but his name does not appear in the reports on the use of doping, which are the basis for the removal of Russia from the Olympic Games.

Хоккей

Russian hockey players have previously won Olympic gold under the Olympic flag. This happened shortly before the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Russian team performed under the name of the CIS (Union of Independent States). Russian hockey player Ilya Kovalchuk (playing in the KHL for SKA Petersburg, previously playing for the New Jersey Devils in the NHL) told the Russian press that the Russian hockey team should take part in the Olympics, although it is not allowed to use its own flag.

Now, after the American League did not allow its players to participate in the Olympics, the opportunity for Russian players to win gold in Pyeongchang increased noticeably if they decide to play, and the KHL will allow them to go to the Olympics.

Women's hockey

Many Russian athletes are believed to be involved in the doping chaos in Sochi. But there is a high probability that a sufficiently large number of athletes will be invited, who in South Korea will be able to create a team. They are among the favorites in the fight for gold.

Snowboard


Vic Wilde, who won the gold medal, and Alena Zavarzina, who won the bronze medal

Russian athlete Vic Wild (Vic Wild) won two gold medals in Sochi. He and his wife Alyona Zavarzina, who is also one of the best slalom snowboarders in the world, can apparently be invited to play if they have not previously been involved in doping scandals.

Figure skating

In the women's singles competition, the representative of Russia Evgenia Medvedeva is one of the main contenders for the best result. When the Russian leaders went to Lausanne to negotiate Russia's participation in the Olympics, before the decision was to be made on Thursday, she was on the delegation. She is 18 years old, and she is one of the brightest sports stars that are well known in Russia. These three have very good chances to get an invitation to participate in the Olympics.

Short track


Viktor An (Russia) after the final 1000 meters race in the men's short track event at the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi

Victor An is one of those who can easily win Olympic gold. He is a native of South Korea, but in 2011, he became a citizen of Russia. Victor An won three gold medals in Toronto for South Korea and three gold medals for Russia in Sochi. He is not involved in doping scandals and made it clear in the Russian media that he wants to get an invitation to Pyeongchang. If only such an invitation goes, he will say yes without hesitation.

Bobsled

Many members of the Russian team were involved in the doping scandal in Sochi. It is believed that Russia at this time there is no special chance of winning, if the team in this sport will be exposed.

Skeleton

Alexander Tretyakov won gold in Sochi, but he is currently excluded from participation in Pyeongchang. Elena Nikitina won bronze in Sochi, but she suffered the fate of Tretyakov. Nikita Tregubov took place on the podium of prize-winners at the World Cup, and he should receive an invitation to play next year.

In such sports as skis, free style, sledges and women's curling, Russian athletes can count on medals, but they are not considered favorites for gold.

              Ana, the Wald ... It seems they are for us, but there is sediment
              I also don’t understand what everyone was happy when Ana, Waldy, and other athletes came across Russia? Now they will just as well run to another country, along with the so-called “our” athletes. These are people-weathercocks, people-prostitutes without a homeland, without a flag, without a hymn, without honor, without conscience and without a king in their head. They do not care about Russia.
              Here, on the Internet, the idea walks that patriotism is for bydla, for "normal people" no matter what rag on the flagpole. Patriotism is for simple hard workers. For those workers and peasants who feed the country with their labor. But for "ilita" it is not needed at all, and even harmful. After all, they themselves, their children, will not defend Russia. What for? Let Vasya Pupkins die, starve, work for 14-16 hours, and the "ilita" will run away either immediately to the side of the enemy, or somewhere to neutral countries.
              So, having removed your head, you should not cry through your hair! For me, everyone who goes to this humiliation has long died. To them is only contempt and complete oblivion. Moreover, I will be glad when they are once again humiliated by selecting medals. They deserved it to the full.
              Know the so-called "athletes from Russia" I BREED YOU! And there are many like me. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of ordinary, REAL citizens of Russia!

                  Yes, they were glad that these guys firstly saw more advantages in our country compared to the country where they lived before.
                  Secondly, they brought gold to the Olympic piggy bank of our country.
                  And, unlike you, do not suffer from manifestations of SICK nationalism. I emphasize - PATIENT!
                  And the fact that they decided to go to the Olympic Games is their own business.
                  As for me personally, I do not support them, but I have no right to offend. I think that you, too, do not have this right.

                  Athletes, what side to the whole politics, is this the authorities could not ensure normal participation in the Olympics, so why should people honestly prepare for the Olympics for four years to suffer for other people's shoals?

                So much pathos and righteous anger ... Do you know that athletes begin to train from 5-6 years old? While their peers in tanks are playing on the Internet, they work hard. About 10 years, just to START to compete at the highest level in adult sports. And this is with luck. And then they have 6-7 years to achieve the highest results. And in these 6-7 years, at the peak of form, you need to go through a number of international competitions and get to the Olympics. Further, by the age of 27, a sports career usually ends.
                People give 15-17 years, the best years (!) Of their lives to sports, and here you are sitting at the TV and computer, deign to despise them publicly. Somehow low ...

                  Yes, they give the best years to sports of the highest achievements, but by the age of 45 they become disabled. I say this with confidence, because the champions were also treated at our hospital. Almost joints, a worn heart ...
                  But here, for example, from the age of 10, I did “exercises” in the morning, but I never smoked or drank alcohol. As a result, at 55, I pull myself up 2 times and calmly run 1 km in 3 minutes 40 seconds. So which of us did smarter? This is my No. 1 argument in favor of Russia's refusal to participate in the Olympics.
                  Argument No. 3 is traditional for this site and lies in my confidence that all the enormous money that goes to the IOC and to maintain the apparatus of sports officials could have been spent much more effectively with Russia itself. This is especially true for football. We never succeeded with it, but it was always a good recreational sport. But precisely in this regard, nothing is being done. And as an example, I want to bring our Novocherkassk, where there are two municipal stadiums and one that is located on the territory of the Technical University. But for some reason, all of them were paid, and the competitions of the yard teams were always held at the stadium, a stadium in one of the military units of the Russian Guard (former MVD).
                  And my argument number 3 is that the desire to get into the ranks of the Olympians is pride, and this is a terrible sin according to the Holy Scriptures.

          It seems that not the athletes are humiliated but the state


          And the athletes quickly switched to another line under the next flag and his color was white. Well, at least they don’t shout in chorus - KAPUT.

          There is no desire to look at the humiliated.

          It seems that the athletes are not humiliated, but the state (according to Lenin: the apparatus of violence of one class over another) that fed athletes with doping.

          Try to stick in a 3-year-old child, something if he turns out to eat ... They (athletes) are adults and if they "stuff", then they need it.

      The list is good, but where is the guarantee that the IOC will allow these athletes to the Olympics. It is not for nothing that they were invented: `` the athlete must also pass all other additional checks at the request of the working group. '' That is, any athlete with the wording `` he did not pass an additional test '' without explaining anything can not be allowed in. It is better not to mess with cheaters.

    It’s not worth rolling your lip to medals ahead of time without the IOC’s decision on the individual admission of our athletes (how much will really go and who?). In the best of times, too, before the games began, our officials made statements about medals bordering on social obligations, but this was not always justified. And even more so today. You need to be more modest.

Justice, pride, honor and dignity are the creed of the Russian people, in contrast to the Russian authorities, to whom these concepts are not known. It is clear that in order to get into power, one must be a corrupt bastard and a cynical scoundrel, there is such a special selection, but certain red lines cannot be crossed.

    What is sport? Almost every "Master of Sports" is a disabled person. Sport is based on the ambition of coaches, the naivete of athletes and the venality of sports officials. Instead of carrying the organization of PHYSICAL CULTURE to the masses, taking care of the health of the nation, the state relies on a small minority and revels in pride, receiving medals on the world sports arena. Honest wrestling is impossible in principle. Coaches and officials "squeeze out" the ranks and orders for themselves, squeezed out athletes are sent into the shade to drink or trade in buffets, because they have neither health nor education leaving for "resignation." Where did I get this opinion? From youth. Once, at regional competitions in classical wrestling, I heard a behind-the-scenes meeting of coaches and judges about which of the participants needed how many victories to receive one or another category. And what do we see with refereeing at the Olympics in the last decade? So then ......

                And now the chronology:
                .President of Russia Vladimir Putin at a meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club said that the possible removal of the national team or the performance of Russian athletes under the neutral flag at the 2018 Olympic Games in South Pyeongchang will be a humiliation for the country.
                “We have no complaints against the International Olympic Committee. There are very decent people there, but they depend on advertisers, on television channels, and on sponsors. And these sponsors, in turn, are given unambiguous signals from certain American authorities. We do not just guess it, we know it. Two options: either force Russia to appear under a neutral flag, or not at all be allowed to enter the Olympic Games, ”Putin quoted Interfax as saying.

                The President of Russia believes that both options are unacceptable and will become "humiliation of the country."
                But fresh
                Russian President Vladimir Putin supported members of the Russian Olympic Committee who voted at the Olympic meeting for the performance of Russian athletes at the 2018 Games in South Korean Pyeongchang flying the Olympic flag. This was announced by the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov. According to him, "we can only talk about his (decision. - eg.ru) support from the president."

Businessmen, supermodels and careerists will go there. But these people are never our athletes. And they represent there exclusively their interests. For this, the hand they are so eager to lick and kiss will hit in the face. And no one will save them, because they go there as neutrals.

      Actually, before Sochi, there was a winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, then they were not even in the top ten. And suddenly such a success in Sochi. You really believe in miracles.
      I agree that the country should be proud in any case. But to bring to the point of absurdity is not necessary.

    In any case, this is not the Russian team, but it is not clear who. Sold for 30 pieces of silver. I do not support, do not respect, I will not be sick.
    But the funniest thing will be next - these “gateways” will still not be allowed to win. And if this succeeds, then the medals will be taken away.

    Once such a story has gone that athletes travel en masse in private for the sake of their achievements - let it be. They have every right, since they devoted their entire conscious life to preparing for this event.
    BUT. In order to exclude such behavior in the future, it is necessary to take tough but fair measures:
    - Broad state support should be only mass physical education and children and youth sports. This is the health and strength of the nation. All.
    - a sport of high achievements (and high incomes), and everything connected with it should be exclusively within the framework of private initiative and private financing. Then then no questions will arise in principle. This is how the system works in many countries, in the USA

    In fact, the Olympics should be held away from both Koreas. As for the Russian Federation, I see no reason to remain part of the IOC and pay membership fees. Only money (more precisely, their absence) can solve such problems. When the Russian Federation, the "rogue country", is a disempowered member of many "international" organizations, this means that the Russian Federation has been turned into a colony.

    I am for the fact that athletes did not go to this Olympics (without a bycot) and the rights to broadcast were not bought, did not recognize McLaren's report and did not pay 15 million to him for this report. This is my civic position!

    But ...
    It seems from what I read that now the majority will finish in an emotional peak that our athletes are fascists and we need to shoot them;))
    And what were they different a year ago?
    Athletes do what they are told.
    Athletes have no choice but to agree to go or put a bullet in their participation in the sport of Russia.
    Because the sports state SYSTEM of Russia made the decision to go, having worked out the decision of the president.
    And it's all!
    How can you “throw” athletes out of the system, do they make decisions on their own somewhere?
    A person who thinks that an athlete is free to go to a particular competition or to choose something is generally not even superficially familiar with the state sports system of the Russian Federation!
    Understand, please, throwing a stone and blaming athletes - you blame the same state sports system! You blame the President of the Russian Federation V.V. Putin for all that you blame the athletes!
    The system has a clear vertical, political and nomenclature vertical, and the athletes at the very bottom of this vertical are “soldiers”!
    They are part of the system, as they were told, so they did!

    Are you any? Sorry, strange, enchanted or something.
    Here is VV Putin good- But Medvedev, then no. (probably Medvedev and the government appointed itself;)))))) I can’t rzhu;))))) A good king has bad boyars;)
    This is probably a cunning plan, V.V. Putin - so cleverly to do everything .. see how the athletes vote, that would certainly get rid of the sports enemies of Russia forever!
    Do you REALLY think so ?????

    How can you put out the brackets in the equation, isolate the fundamental links from the process and think that it all worked out by itself and blame it on the link (of the athletes) who solve nothing!
    May I ask you a little question where did you study at all?
    Do you have 2x2 = 5?
    These are not bad athletes! This sports state system is bad!
    Bad ones who created this system and manage it!

    Athletes can in this case only accept the rules of the game and go!
    Or refuse, thereby pointing the SYSTEM at its nullity and go against the system.
    Vladimir Putin spoke on this issue, members of the government, for those who are especially “deaf” and who see a hidden meaning in something, chewed on the essence - we must go! All voiced by all federal channels!
    The system has decided to perform under the white flag!

    The athlete has the right to individually refuse.
    Express your civic position.
    And here our (athlete, yours and mine) positions coincide, because
    I am for the fact that athletes did not go to this Olympics (without a bycot) and the rights to broadcast were not bought, did not recognize McLaren's report and did not pay 15 million to him for this report. This is my civic position!
    But my civic position, like yours and that of an athlete who refused to go, does not correspond to the position of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian government on this issue.
    This is the problem !!!
    Here the posts are laid out "Selling athletes ..! We are disappointed in you ... we hate, we will not forgive!"
    But what about the position of the president and government of the Russian Federation !!!
    Oops! ;)

    We also remember the officials. But the officials threw responsibility on the athletes. And athletes have no civilian position at all. Then why all the howls that "we represent Russia, the flag of Russia is rinsing in our hearts, everyone already knows where we come from"? Let them come to compete from the Neutral Federation and represent their own sports officials. Together they perfectly complement each other and are completely worthy of each other. Without a flag, honor and homeland. Then the Serebrennikovs and Dumetsky will write the banter's opera Rodchenkov, and our porno-elite elite will clap their hands and shout “encore, bravo”.

    Russia has been removed, but these people can and will continue to disgrace at the Olympics and disgrace the Russians. Such a name for the article or rather. They have no dignity, no sports solidarity with those whom they illegally removed, not to mention their homeland (flag, anthem). Their selfish achievements are insignificant, and they’re not worth a dime, they will be forgotten by everyone in a year ... But the fact that the Jews appeared under the flag of NOBODY will be remembered forever.

    All this hype is reminiscent of the fairly now forgotten case of Dreyfus, when the betrayal was on the part of the generals, and the ordinary officer of the French General Staff was blamed for everything.

    Who cherished the athletes? No one wants athletes, it simply surprises the lack of a civic position. But since the system wants to bend as far as possible under the West, as you reason, the system needs to drive all the remaining "doping-free" athletes to the Olympics in the name of "purity of sport." There, of course, the athletes will be humiliated even more than we are "kicking" here, but it was they who made such a choice. I personally don’t want athletes, I write everywhere that, firstly, it’s humiliating to go without a flag. Secondly, if there are contentious issues, then our disqualified OCD will not help to appeal the arbitration. Thirdly, there will be no residence in the Olympic village. Fourth, doctors and masseurs should be private. Fourth, as soon as you please the audience, your medals will then be taken away, they will find a lot of “violations”, the same state support, for example, for a trip to the games. Therefore, your fate is to go there with amusing buffoons, emphasizing the successes of other teams that "competed on equal footing with terrible Russians." That's all.

    So much pathos and righteous anger ... Do you know that athletes begin to train from 5-6 years old? While their peers in tanks are playing on the Internet, they work hard. About 10 years, just to START to compete at the highest level in adult sports. And this is with luck. And then they have 6-7 years to achieve the highest results. And in these 6-7 years, at the peak of form, you need to go through a number of international competitions and get to the Olympics. Further, by the age of 27, a sports career usually ends.
    People give 15-17 years, the best years (!) Of their lives to sports, and here you are sitting at the TV and computer, deign to despise them publicly. Somehow low ...

    I will say only for myself. Four years ago, when so many roared to the glory of Russia, which won in Sochi, I personally was ashamed. I am ashamed that the medal classification was taken out at the expense of the Korean and Amik with Russian passports. I was born and raised in the USSR and for me it was a shame. I was not very surprised by the words of Kovalchuk, but what Pavlik Datsyuk said is the finish. In November, on CzechTV watched the Russia-Czech Republic match at Karjala Kap. There was a guest in the studio - Marek Sikora, discussing our actions in the event of a ban on the part of the IOC. Pan Sikora said that he CANNOT REPRESENT OUR HOCKEYS WITHOUT NATIONAL ATTRIBUTES! He can’t, but Putin and Kovalchuk - easily.

    Among the three reasons to appear under the IOC flag: one if the athlete does not agree with the existing regime in his country, and two more somehow fell out of memory, but they are not so loud. At the Olympic Games, athletes from Russia will be persuaded precisely as those who disagree with the Putin regime.
    I’m not a fan of the development of the country, in the 70s they passed. But I’m also against going to these political competitions.
