Reaction of Elena Isinbaeva, two-time Olympic gold medalist, a three-time World Champion and current world record holder
2217 ViewsJuly 21, 2016 14 Comments
Reaction of Elena Isinbaeva, two-time Olympic gold medalist (2004 and 2008), a three-time World Champion (2005, 2007 and 2013), the current world record holder. She has never been implicated in any doping scandal.
Translation: All which an athlete had to do what to jump high enough, pass the test and compete. Thank you for the funeral of track and field athletics. This is motivated solely by political expediency. All the conclusions are directed at the VAFLA (All-Russia Athletic Federation) and there nothing against the athletes, this is clearly a ‘zakazukha’ (a ‘hit’). We had hope, now we lost it . Now let these pseudo-clean foreign athletes breathe a sigh of relief and win their pseudo-gold medals while we are away. Strength has always been feared
Original Russian text: Все, что нужно было сделать спортсмену, — прыгнуть норматив, сдать тест и выступать. Спасибо всем за похороны легкой атлетики. Это чисто политический заказ. Все доводы направлены против ВФЛА и ничего конкретного против спортсменов, явная “заказуха”. Была, да сплыла надежда … Пусть все эти псевдо-чистые иностранные спортсмены выдохнут с облегчением и выигрывают свои псевдо-золотые медали в наше отсутствие. Силу всегда боялись.

Thanks for sharing. Excellent.
Maybe the RF ought to keep its powder dry for a year then after initial round of qualifiers cancel FIFA 2018?

It is a disgrace. No bounds or shame to assist political agenda’s. I feel for all Russian athletes.
Uncle Bob 1 on July 22, 2016 · at 12:09 am UTC
Russia needs to hold (probably in Sochi) an “All-Russian” track and field event (at the same time as the Rio Games). Which would give her athletes a chance to compete. And cut the TV link to the track and field events in Rio. Only show the events that have Russian athletes competing. If the Russian Team is banned or withdraws,cut all viewing of the Rio Games in Russia. There is no reason for Russian networks to pay a broadcasting fee to Western TV for showing games that they aren’t competing in.

And just in case people think that the rest of the world would not be interested in the things that Russians do in the RussoKitai continent, Uncle Bob, and thus Russia would be “isolated” and forgotten: “http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3701811/From-Moscow-Beijing-Gobi-Desert-Rally-cars-tear-vast-dunes-oases-compete-Silk-Way-Rally.html”
From a very widely read UK paper.

Don’t worry about Rio. Forget about the Olympics. Set up a new games. Stick to the best sports. Make it invitation only. Invitation of athletes only according to excellence. If you aint good enough, you do not receive invitation.
No national flags. No national anthems. None of that nationalistic rubbish. Time to start again and do it right this time. What is sought is to see the highest attainment of human excellence in physical performance. The rest is worthless.
P.S. I shall not be watching the Olympics. It isn’t worth the effort to sit through the advertising.
Harry_Red on July 22, 2016 · at 12:41 am UTC
What humiliation and disgrace is this ??
…The entire Russian federation should boycott the Olympics. All Russian olympians should honor there comrades and refuse to go Brazil.
….If any Russian competes at the Olympics after this politically motivated disgrace, then they are basically respecting the position and suspension of their colleagues and basically admitting that they were indeed guilty.
…..Russians should have more dignity and self respect and not participate in this farce.

Pseudo means illegitimate, illegitimate means perfect moral arrow.
If ever there was one.!.?.is binary analysis moot –

It is not a matter of setting up alternative games, Uncle et al. It is a matter to do with time. There is such a thing as the other penny. This banning is a bridgehead to a coup de grace.

I wonder how many of these various sports regulatory officials running this political faggotry against Russia are Jews? Are Cathlics? And whether any of these adolescents are not zionist or otherwise deeply in bed with the Jewish mafia (that’s organised crime for those who still believe the Jewish run Hollywood scam of it all being Italians with gauze in thier cheeks running the show). Is there a way to find out the bios of these corrupt scum to illuminate their biases and who is greasing their buggered bums?

Guilt by association may be sufficient for a search warrant or wire tap, but not for criminal conviction in a court of law. The blanket ban on all Russian track and field athletes is an example of the guilt-by-association fallacy. Yelena has been on the international athletics circuit for 18 years. She has two Olympic golds and multiple world golds. There has never been any hint whatsoever of doping during her whole career, unlike for one of the prime “witnesses” for the “prosecution,” Yulia Stepanova, a very second-rate athlete absent doping, who is being allowed to compete under the IOC flag, despite her record.
Collective punishment is also something that is in contravention of the UN Charter. Another example of this injustice, is to Sergey Shubenkov, who competed at age 21 in the 110 m hurdles in the 2012 Olympics, but didn’t reach the finals. He has competed many times since in world events, inproving to gold medal status in the 2015 World Championships. He too has never shown any hint of doping. These two are serious and clean competitors for gold, who have been unfairly taken out of the competition to the advantage of their rivals.
Cheating to gain medals can go far beyond just doping to finding ways to keep rival athletes out of a competition. There have been many “individual” initiatives from rigging heavyweight boxing challenger rankings to a US ice skater being deliberating injured by an associate of a rival. Perhaps, we are now seeing a full-blown, “state-sponsored” similar initiative in progress.
Here is a Russian dissection of the accusation of “systemic” doping. http://orientalreview.org/2016/07/21/the-olympics-as-a-tool-of-the-new-cold-war/comment-page-1/#comment-2712510 It is a perennial issue in criminal trials. Whom does one believe, known perpetrators pointing the finger at others, or the others denying involvement, particularly when those making the accusations are trying to avoid conviction or extradiition themselves?
Unproven, blanket defamation of athletes, which causes actual loss of income, is actionable in common law. There may be a lot of lawsuits flying after this. Under UK law, even telling the truth is no defence against a libel lawsuit, if there is “malicious intent” to harm. In North America, telling the truth is a defence, but the truth has to be proven. Unfounded speculation is not accepted in court.
The IOC and its global network are as corrupt as FIFA ever was and will be. Any changes will be just as in the Ukraine, one bunch of corrupt, gangster oligarchs taking over from another. The lack of regard for the property and human rights of poorer residents in the development path of Olympic facilities is another scandal. If the Brazil games turn out to be debacle, along with the exclusion of the Russians, the whole house of cards may come tumbling down, just as the western Roman Empire, with its “bread and circuses,” did..

These sorts of acts by the zio-gays are designed to isolate Russia. The zionazi sods want the Russians to have a reaction that the zio-gays can use to demonise them with. Like with everything these fascist favgots try on Russia, the best resonse is not taking the bait.
People put too much into the worth of things like sports events and song contests (remember the adolescent zio-gay nonsense of the last euro song contest?), these are fluff things. They matter little on the world stage. Take the long view. The olympics is supposed to be non political, yet here are some desperate zionazis and nazis going all out to make them political, Part of their full spectrim dominance bum banditry, yes, but also their emphasis on these petty and very gay smear campaigns show how impotent their power has become. It’s all hysterics now from these freaks because they know that militarily they not only do not have the public backing for the sorts of wars they need, their much vauntef military would not be able to do a fraction of what their propaganda wants everybody to believe.
The zio-west are total losers bluffing with a nothing hand and failing at that.

Russian absence makes it the donkeys backside awaiting the tail to be pinned on it. The set up has hardly begun. Banning is a foundation for the finger pointing and posse assemblage to come. Banning is preparing the ground. Far from a global peace the Olympics are a platform and cover as in Ossetia, Sochi, but more likelier yet something alloyed somewhat to Munchen. The plaque kissing of late unnerves the aware. No act seems too low so far.

I will boycott this Olympics, will not watch any competition. I’m Brazilian, leaving in the uncle Sam land, I was ready to visit the homeland, but now I won’t. it’s disgusting, F. the Olympics!
Anonymous on July 22, 2016 · at 9:08 am UTC
Don’t ya peeps have better things to attend to?
I mean even in the best of times, who the f. cares about this or that sort of games?
Like an european soccer championship, that was won by africans?
What is the point? Essplain pleeeese?
Yeah, I get the multi mill. Dinero sponsorships and shit, but that is an exception, not the norm.
The other day we were messing with a news item about some virtue signalling simpleton, who has ran 1348 kilometers with a friend of mine.
We were so immensely impressed. There is not enough time in the day to do what needs to be done, yet this retard and ALL sportsters find time to run over to the moon.
All that energy, sacrifice, and nothing to show for it.
Let me give yaall a pointer:
They call it the olimpic GAMES.
Grow up children.
Of coursemit is political and not without precedent either.
But who cares?
I do not.
I care about the Donbas. I care abour Syria.
I care about rain on my farm. I care about my dog and cat.
I could not care less about some or other “sporting” event I am not perticipating in.
