The unexpected decision by the IOC Executive Board to permit "clean" Russian Competitors to participate in the RIO Olympics next week, raises one fundamental question :
- Will from the start a foolproof ANTI DRUG TESTING SYSTEM be in operation in RIO for all Olympic events which has the benediction of the IAAF and WADA ?
If the answer to this question, without any réservations, is "YES", then there seem to be no real reasons why any new records cannot be recognised officially !
However, if the benediction of the IAAF and WADA has not been officially obtained, any new National or World records in RIO cannot be accepted or recorded officially !
Will a quick answer be made available for all Competitors and Spectators ?
