    I am going to be an annoying pedant here, and I know you know this, but just pointing out that one should not equate Russia with the USSR. We assume the systems were very similar, but some of those...

    I have no idea whether Lasitskene is clean now or not. I do know that on the one hand I feel some sympathy for her, as she was born into a system she had no control over. But on the other hand I also...

    You get bums on seats by having the best athletes at your meet. Better still if you can showcase some head-to-heads. A great DL meeting t's not about the number of events, it's about getting the...
