Infographic: dope and glory

The Rio Olympics are in full swing and while Russia is currently performing well in the medals table, it’s doing so with a much smaller team of athletes than originally intended.

A World Anti-Doping Agency report which found evidence for a state-run doping programme put pressure on the International Olympic Committee to issue a blanket ban on all Russian athletes. Eventually, the IOC ruled that athletes who had been banned for doping violations in the past were no longer welcome, barring more than 100 athletes from the Olympics.

In DG #22, we crunched the numbers on the doping bans listed by the International Association of Athletics Federations. Check out the infographic below: and to see it in all its printed glory, pick up a copy of DG #22 in the DG shop.
