Yelena Isinbayeva tears up during her speech in the Kremlin, on 28 July 2016. Isinbayeva is two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-time world champion, and is generally considered the greatest female pole vaulter of all time. 

The testimonies of only three “informants” in relation to Russian doping are not subject to any court decisions. Furthermore, upon studying the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) records (available online) it becomes evident that the Russian team was tested twice as many times as any other, and still turned up only a 0.91% positive result.

Selective discrimination based on ethnicity contravenes basic, universal human rights as enshrined in United Nations principles. 

Economic and cultural sanctions have not only backfired against Russia, but they have exposed the World Anti-Doping Agency as a tool of political oppression. If that doesn’t make the Western alliance look pathetic to the rest of the world – what can?

But guess what – now we’re angry and more competitive than ever before =) Good luck pseudo-clean athletes!
