TheOtherRob Posted July 24, 2016 Report Share Posted July 24, 2016 (edited) 16 minutes ago, Sir Rols said: I don't think a blanket ban would have been workable. Preventing "clean" athletes their shot at the games would have been a real denial of their natural justice and would have left the field open for all kinds of legal problems ahead. Given that we can't know who is clean from Russia the IOC have instead decided to deny natural justice to every other athlete. They've also denied natural justice to every athlete in the past who's been cheated out of medals by Russia. It looks like the IOC has given no thought to these clean athletes. In truth, whichever choice the IOC made clean athletes would've been harmed. But only one choice would send a strong message about doping and actually punish those responsible. It was the one they refused to take. As such Bach is a failure. Edited July 24, 2016 by Rob. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
