    It’s only because of the communist mentality. Imagine Chinese or North Korean athletes…. Scared for their livelihood

    Olympics could be organized outside of nation-state framework? Have each kind of competition - sprinting, figure skating, whatever - be like open tournaments, as with golf or tennis. Make it be about individual glory. People can still get behind competitors from their countries. Might cut down on the totalitarian, great power rivalry bs? Admittedly, this doesn't work well for team events. Or $$$

    It all comes down to context. The greater the stage, the deeper the fall. Then the question lingers "can he/she/the team recover and ...?" Well when Djokovic lied when entering Australia to participate in the Australian Open I just thought "now you are being stupid, enjoy the distrust." That one just disgusted me...

    So sad, "Black Widow" girls being thrown into the garbage after they fail.

    I mean... 15 years old + "big end of my life super duper doping scandal" - I'm somewhat amazed she even stayed in.

    One newspaper reports that the moment the kid got off the ice, the coach Eteri Tutberidze started yelling at her: “Why did you let it go? Explain to me, why. Why did you stop fighting? You let it go after that axel. Why?” This meets the dictionary definition of psychotic.

    Freaking child abuse, man. I feel so sad for that kid.

    I quit coaching because of the constant berating of kids by other coaches and worse; parents. Broke my heart and wasn't worth it.
