About the fact that they cleaned out the strongest athletes and wrote before me. I want to say that WADA was generally created in order to flatten Russian athletes. Germany, Canada, the USA, France sit tightly on their cocktails, Norway is completely disabled-asmatics, without their doping they won't even get up on skis. I can imagine if our people start taking doping ..., the rest will cry silently around the corner, the whole business of high achievements will collapse. The IOC business office will not allow this. WADA is the defender of the interests of Canada, USA, Germany, England. It is logical to change the system.

No. You must understand, this is not a fall in Pyeongchang. It was in Sochi that there was a spurt of colossal power. And here we are not even talking about doping. If they took away all the medals that they were going to take away, it would still be the best result for Russia in the 21st century. And with an ideal composition at the current Olympics, the awards would be noticeably less than in Sochi. And then, either by coincidence or not by coincidence, almost everyone who could claim gold in their forms was refused an invitation.

Viktor An would have fought for two gold medals (personal and team).

Sergei Ustyugov would have won at least one race in skiing, and the relay race with his participation could have become gold.

Skaters Yuskov and Kulizhnikov would have won one gold medal each. There are absolutely their distances, where they almost never lose.

Shipulin would hardly have picked up something personal, but the Russians would have fought for gold in the men's relay with him. Not even due to the steepness of Anton himself, but due to the fact that you can use the weak points of competitors. The French have an abyss beyond Fourcade. Even the leaders of the Norwegians can fail the baton. The Germans are even, but Shipulin knows how to defeat them.

Here's 4-5 gold medals. Let's add the missing gold on the figure skating team. Let's hope that the gold will be in single skaters, in hockey, where Russia is the favorite and got into the ideal half of the grid for itself and, possibly, Wilde in snowboard.

Therefore, the medal failure can be explained not only by the complete absence of doping, but also by the absence of many leaders.

In Russia, after some upsurge, there has been stagnation and recession in all areas. We are now reaping the benefits of the vertical of power and the lack of healthy competition on the ground. The principle of recruiting employees is not based on professional qualities. Sport cannot live separately from the country according to its own rules, and it was affected by the general stagnation and the tendency to pass off the wishful thinking. I will not list his specific illnesses, but the scandal with fake invalids in Paralympic teams, the use of doping at the state level (it's funny to talk about the lack of evidence - no one gave written orders to use doping) fit into the big picture. Our sport lags behind the world, primarily in the training system, in the creative search for coaches. No wonder more and more of our athletes become champions after training in foreign centers, not as rich and packed as ours (swimmers train in the USA, skaters in Italy, etc.). Only figure skaters, "artists" and synchronized skaters maintain their positions thanks to tradition and a strong coaching school. But in gymnastics it did not help - we are lagging behind. As for the Olympic Games, we must not forget that this is not just a sporting event. They were revived by Pierre de Coubertin as Games Free of Politics and Commerce, emphasizing the equality of participants regardless of race, social status and sporting qualifications. For a long time, professionals were not allowed, and at first even athletes who had not come at their own expense were not allowed. The honesty of wrestling is the main principle of the Olympic Games. Russia violated it at the state level, showing by this an example of the successful use of bribery and fraud, damaging the prestige of Olympic medals. The IOC should have cleansed itself of this shame, all its actions were forced and have nothing to do with Russophobia or political games.

First, many strong athletes were not allowed in. Secondly, what the IOC has done greatly demoralizes all athletes from Russia. Moreover, Russian sportsmen, according to their own words, are constantly ostracized by colleagues from other countries. Not the most favorable situation for accomplishment

The Olympic Games, like games between countries, were created with political overtones. It was always and everywhere. From a psychological point of view, to impose on people "pain" for "theirs" .. Hatred of those who defeat "ours" and pride when ours beat someone. Thus, causing false patriotism and imposing a stable opinion of the enemy! From a political point of view, this is a manifestation of the strength of the nation, to make "passively" respect and fear a strong country (its successful and enduring athletes, as if hinting that we are so much better that we can bring up such strong athletes, tremble and be afraid) And it really works. Athletes have nothing to do with it. This is their bread, life .. How are they without it, how can they be condemned for the fact that they went after their dream? Another thing is that this is 100% politics. I don’t understand why it was necessary to take away the flag from the country at the Olympics? Well, they would not let just those who were caught doping and that's it. So no .. the point was to deflag the entire country. To humiliate the nation. To thrust into the brain the idea that Russia is not a country, it is so flawed and worthless that it does not even have its own flag at the Olympic Games, so purely gray mass is running around, which was allowed to come and create an entourage and extras. As if they win, but who is this in general, a handful of people from an unnamed territory.

In fact, this is a very cruel psychological move of the United States .. Okay, me, and other people understand this problem adequately, and on my patriotism .. or whatever you call it, will not be reflected. But there are millions of people in the country who will be greatly affected by this deflation. In our country, patriotism suffers as it is. And it is not known how else it will affect .. Even more complexes, even more insecurity and even more disbelief in himself and in his country. In short, it was not a bad political and psychological blow. So, it is possible that the removal of the flag has already affected the desire to win ...

"Among the Russian intelligentsia, for reasons that are not worth talking about now, there are a lot of embittered people. These people hate everyone and everything. With great passion they rub into every business, but solely to spoil it. They hate all creativity and live only by destruction. No wonder Russia is the birthplace of all anarchist teachings. The Institute of destruction is deeply seated in a significant part of Russians and turns into a martyrology the life of all people who want to do something useful. Evil opposition grows in Russia right from the stones of the pavement. it would take too long to explain why this is happening, but it is a fact. " V.V.Shulgin, one of the founders of the White movement, State Duma deputy (1920s)
