The analytical program "However" with Mikhail Leontiev 22 June 2016
Sport in a sense - the sublimation of war. Therefore, during the ancient Olympics, the fighting was suspended. The current sport is the sublimation of the Cold War. In this case, the hostilities are not halted, because by and large they do not exist. Everything that happens around sports, Olympics, doping, has nothing to do with sports or doping. In addition to the above.
В stories of the ancient Olympiad, the most glaring incident was the speech of the emperor Nero in 67. The emperor moved the games two years ahead, bribed the judges and organized the disqualification of his strong opponents. And as a result, he became a six-time champion.
From the film “Asterix and Obelix”:
-I'm challenging, demanding, protesting! I blame the Gauls for abusing the magic elixir !!!!
- Didn’t you yourself?
-What's the difference? I blew it!
As for doping itself: in recent years, 50, progress in top-level sports has not been possible without the "drug factor." Thus, success is largely determined by the level of sports medicine and the influence in the organs that control this medicine. There is reason to believe that we are lagging behind in both.
WADA - the current anti-doping agency - was created in the ninety-ninth, when we as a country practically did not exist. That is, it was created without us and, as it turned out, it was unexpectedly, against us.
The summit of the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne decided not to remove the entire Russian team from participation in the Rio Olympics, supported the decision to disqualify the Russian Athletics Federation and left the decision to allow individual athletes at the discretion of the relevant international federations.
We were allowed !!! We decided not to finish now, and promised to forgive in the future if we behave properly. This is very similar to the history of sanctions. In fact, just a part of it. We are stifled "sectorally" - not to the end. To keep incentives to come to their senses. Because the task - not to suffocate, and put on a hook. Because this whole story hides the fact that it is impossible to strangle us, and besides, it is dangerous for our own health.
In fact, the dope scandal is revenge. Revenge for not being able to intimidate and add pressure. Nothing succeeded. Revenge hysterical, stupid and self-exposing. We have already won them. And to compete with them in fair play - fair play - according to their rules, according to which we are obliged to lose, is rather silly.
