    Default Ivan go home!

    Russia banned from winter Olympics!

    Who is Trump going to cheer for?


    "Clean" Russian athletes will be "invited" to take part in the Winter Olympics in South Korea next year, though they will be required to compete under the Olympic flag.But Russia was officially barred from the PyeongChang Winter Games over allegations of systematic, state-sponsored doping between 2011 and 2015.

    In allowing clean athletes to compete, the International Olympic Committee said Tuesday they would do so under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russia" (OAR).

    Oh there are "Clean" Russian athletes who aren't or haven't been banned, Trump can get behind, however if Putin decides it's all or none, Trump will have a problem.

    Russia will not broadcast the Games, and has declared foreign press and broadcasters 'Foreign Agents'.

    And then there's the Football World Cup, to be run by the same Russian crew that are banned in this matter.

    Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don’t want to represent Trump at Olympics

    "I want to represent our country well. I don't think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that," Vonn told CNN.
    She added that she hopes "to represent the people of the United States, not the president" at the upcoming Winter Olympics.
