Rio Olympics 2016: Russia fails to overturn athlete ban for next month's Games
Quote:Russian track and field athletes will remain banned from the Olympics following claims the country ran a state-sponsored doping programme.

The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) and 68 Russian athletes attempted to overturn the suspension, implemented by the body that governs world athletics.

But the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) has ruled it can stand.

Normally, I would laugh at Russia for this but this means they're not going to Brazika. That's probably a hidden blessing in itself.

So the Olympic Games will become as uninteresting as Los Angeles 1984. The only interesting stuff will happen outside the arenas, anyway. Murder, robbery, dangerous mosquitos, strikes, marauding hoi polloi and cops firing tear gas grenades all over the place. Hunger Games 2016!


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
