And yea...
what isn't state sponsored, which is the most shocking :shaking-head-no-smiley-emoticon: , is still prevalent throughout sport.

Lance Armstrong was the wakeup call and still people are oversleeping on this.
We have to come to terms with science and performance and where the line exists.

(CNN)Russian track and field athletes could be banned from the 2016 Olympics after an independent report detailed an apparently state-sponsored doping program.

Commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and carried out by the organization's former president, Dick Pound, the findings uncovered a "deeply rooted culture of cheating at all levels" within Russian athletics.

Asked if it amounted to state-sponsored doping, Pound told reporters a news conference Monday: "In the sense of consenting to it, there's no other conclusion."

The report says more than 1,400 samples were "intentionally and maliciously" destroyed by a Moscow laboratory even after a WADA plea to preserve them.

It even suggests the London 2012 Olympics -- in which Russia won 24 gold medals -- were "in a sense, sabotaged by the admission of athletes who should have not been competing."

The report also criticizes an "inexplicable laissez-fair policy" adopted by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) -- the sport's governing body -- and recommends that five athletes and five coaches, all from Russia, be banned for life.
