The IBSF (International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation) has cancelled its World Championships in Sotchi.

An earlier report by Professor McLaren had already accused Russia of "State Sponsored" drug use by its athletes and the multiple methods used to hide or change test samples.  More details and evidence will be revealed in the current report about to be published 

Other Sporting Federations will certainly also want to act for the same reasons. 

Russia and its sportsmen could be banned for five or ten years from participating in International sporting competitions. This would not only be a punishment, but  give Russia time to reorganise and to prove that it merits a return to competitive international sport.

According to Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin Spokesman,  the decision to cancel the 2017 Bobsleigh Championships in Sotchi, is "political and without grounds" !

The reality is that Russia "officially" has never ever  admitted any wrongdoing !    

One could be sorry for the clean competitors in Russia who could also be banned, but one must not forget all the clean competitors who have been cheated out of Medals by drugged Russian "sportsmen and -women" !
