    I'm surprised Paul didn't mention Russia as they have two potential superstars for their Senior Team.

    The revelation that the Russians never shut down their systematic doping scheme for athletes may have something to do with it. Did you see the new documentary where one of their major international woman athletes admitted "everyone was/is required to take them." Putin is Raz-Putin.

    Then, there is this. A Swin Cashean moment:

    I didn't see the documentary you mention, but I did see former Russian national team player Anna Petrakova on Twitter last year saying she and everyone on the London Olympic women's basketball team was given whatever the name of the drug Sharapova was caught using.

    I believe our educational system has been systematically "doping down" all students and not just the athletes.
