    Anyone who wants a detailed look at the Russians doping program check out Icarus.

  2. Brian Arnold says:

    Note: Ross Rebagliati (mentioned at 10:01 as a "juiced up athlete") was found to have trace amounts of marijuana in his system. Does the IOC consider marijuana to be a performance enhancing drug?

  3. Zazuban says:

    The section at 3:34 about Trumps "Bombshell" is about as fake as fake news gets. Do you realize how freaking stupid you are right now Vice news…. Obama also said that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel and so did Bush and Clinton… do you really think we are going to fall for your lies ; your pathetic attempts to turn the public against our president?! Palestine can go stick their religion of peace back where the sun doesn't shine.

  4. iFoRMaTioN1 says:

    Ban Russia? Might as well ban America.

  5. YesMan NoMan says:

    Russia must be doing something right if they have enraged the US Empire and its vassals. What are the odds that the most demonised country in the West gets hammer-slammed at a time when relations between Russia and USA are frostier than ever? It seems a bit coincidental that the ban occurred now and not, well previously when Russia had a pro-Western installed friendly government (hinting at the drunkard fool Yeltsin).

    How is it that Russia suddenly started sponsoring a doping programme in 2014 and had it effects come so quickly? Surely, if this is some larger scale system then the mechanism and delay of communication would've been much longer.

    I see this very much as a character assassination at a very fitting time in order to discredit and delegitimise Russian actions on the geopolitical arena. If you've missed recent news about Syria because of your media failing to report on the events, then I can tell you that the Syrian state together with Russia, Iran and some others have achieved victory that have started a domino effect in stopping western meddling in the Middle East. Now that Russia has a foothold in Syria, they'll be able to position themselves better against Western regime changes in neighbouring states.

    I hope you at least give this some thought before you comment that I'm a Russian troll.

    It's the Elite that want the land

  7. Ira Dutary-Audia says:

    Hold doctors accountable for writing scripts left and right instead of sending them to therapy but I guess they'd lose out on those kick backs that drug companies give them… no respect for their fellow humans

  8. Jeff Araujo says:

  9. Artistic Endeavors says:

    Like the NFL, the olympics are finished.

  10. Odysseus Candle says:

    Creating chaos, confusion, anger, terror. Anything it takes to full fill his agenda. Gaining on military contracts and obviously military positioning/logistics.

  23. PantsB4Squares says:

    Vice is caught as being sell outs? People that have been watching for vice's entirety will know that sold out a few years ago to play along as the main newsoutlets do. Which means they are not truly indepent because big brother is watching and threatend them. So they can only speak on what is approved. THE PUTIN DAUGHTERS SEGMENT WAS REMOVED. I saw the segment when thia video first aired and now its gone. State yourself vice!!

  24. Luis Rosa says:
