    Danil Lysenko, I presume, not Tatyana.

    I wonder how many US female world record holders were/are complete frauds? Like I'm the only one with these sentiments. And hopefully nobody would play the race card here, that would be completely repulsive.

    And I agree wholeheartedly with showing the same zeal all over the place to deal with this disease.
    Not a single person here has injected race into this matter...only you.

    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 USSR WR's are not from Russian athletes (Chistyakova I believe was Ukrainian before she emigrated to Slovakia, & within the 4x4 team Bryzgina is Ukranian; Pinigina is Kyrgyzstani & Ledovskaya is Belarussian). So, strictly speaking, Russia holds less current WRs than the US in standard championship events.

    Talk about an SMU death sentence! This will have far-reaching ramifications. I suspect many athletes will 'discover' they have bloodlines (or financial ones) into other nations.

    This is where being a little bit Ukrainian, Belarussian, Latvian, Kazak etc will be very handy. Yes there may be certain countries 'sniffing around' for talented young Russians. Especially those who have yet to represent anyone internationally.

    Four year ban extending through the 2022 World Cup, fall of 2022, but no specific mention about the 2022 Winter Olympics. In or out of those Games?

    Presumably out. It's certainly within the 4-year period of the ban.
