    Edit: And thus begins a long discussion about corruption within the IAAF and Russia...


    How are we not talking about this yet?

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1628...4986540255876/ (scroll down and read the comments I made, the ones with pictures)...

    It is almost 3:30 in the morning, I just keep finding more evidence that this is a cover-up by Russia.

    I can't speak for everyone on these forums, of course, but I hardly ever go there, and this thread is the first I heard of the story.

    You really should go there. I don't know of a better way to stay current with what's going on in the track & field world.

    The Russians at administrative level have always been cheats, are still cheats, and will likely forever remain cheats. It is something to do with their DNA. I imagine Putin is already making the necessary arrangements to have Lashamova and the organiser of the meet to be awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation.

    I'm obviously biased to the max here, but tandfman is spot-on with his "no better way" comment, as far as I'm concerned. I don't think one even need many/most (or even any) of the headlines, but taking a minute or so each day simply to reach each of the headlines gives one a pretty good picture of the interesting issues that are unfolding every day.

    The other huge mystery here is why are they hiding Sergey Bakulin, the same way they are Lashmanova? He appeared in the original podium pictures, but was missing from the results and the re-shoot. As far as I can tell, he is not serving a doping ban?
