No Zika for you Putin! Russian track team barred from Rio Olympics

The powerhouse Russian track team, engulfed in an ever-widening doping scandal, will not be allowed to compete at the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics, it was announced Friday.

The team had been suspended from international competition since last year but had enacted a series of reforms and was seeking reinstatement from the IAAF, the governing body for track worldwide.

IAAF leaders, meeting at a hotel in Vienna, voted to uphold the ban after hearing from a task force created to monitor the situation.

    No problem. They will be replaced by Western trannies.

    • Heh;)

    • Watch as female athletes go into fits over who is really a female athlete under the hood (if one will forgive the innuendo).

    Too bad for the bugs, I bet all the steroids and associated drugs would make sucking Russian blood to be quite a buzz for the teeny critters.

    I wonder if that will piss off Vlad?
