CNN 10 is getting things started this Tuesday with a report concerning Russian athletes and international sports. In fact if the World Anti-Doping Agency gets its way, Russian athletes won't be allowed to compete in major international sports for four years. The World Anti-Doping Agency works to keep certain drugs out of sports —performance enhancing drugs, which could give athletes an unfair advantage are among them. In 2016 a report came out that accused Russia of having a widespread and complicated doping or drug program that was supported by the Russian government.
The World Anti-Doping Agency says Russia hasn't fully cooperated with investigations into this, so it voted on Monday to ban the country from major events. What does that mean? If the decision is upheld, Russia won't be able to host any major international sporting events for four years. In the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, the 2022 Winter Olympics and the 2022 World Cup Finals, the Russian flag won't be flown and the country's national anthem won't be played. This doesn't mean that all Russian athletes have been kicked out. Those who can prove they never took part in doping programs can still compete as neutral athletes.
You might remember in the 2018 Olympics how a number of people competed as Olympic Athletes from Russia. When they won medals the Olympic flag was raised and the Olympic anthem was played. That same thing could happen again. And if the Russian National Soccer Team qualifies for the 2022 World Cup it will be allowed to play but will have to compete as a neutral team. The World Anti-Doping Agency says Russia's been given every chance to quote "get its house in order and rejoin the global anti-doping community, but it chose instead to continue in its stance of deception and denial."
The United States Anti-Doping Agency says Russia's punishment doesn't go far enough, that the country should have been completely banned from international competition. But Russian Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev says though his country has had problems with doping, the decision to ban Russian athletes including some who've already been punished makes it look like a continuation of anti-Russian hysteria. He wants Russian organizations to appeal the decision. And another Russian government official suggested the country would do that because Russia quote "must defend our athletes".
世界反兴奋剂机构表示，俄罗斯并未完全配合调查，因此该机构在周一投票通过了禁止俄罗斯参加重大赛事的提案 。这意味着什么？如果这项决定得到确认，那俄罗斯在未来四年将不能举行任何重大国际体育赛事 。在2020年夏季奥运会和残奥会、2022年冬奥会以及2022年世界杯决赛圈比赛期间，不能升俄罗斯国旗、奏俄罗斯国歌 。这并不意味着所有俄罗斯运动员都会被禁赛 。能证明自已从未参与兴奋剂计划的运动员仍能以中立运动员的身份参赛 。
大家可能还记得2018年奥运会的情形，当时有许多俄罗斯运动员以奥林匹克运动员的身份参赛 。他们赢得奖牌时会升奥运会会旗、奏奥运会会歌 。同样的情况可能再次发生 。如果俄罗斯国家足球队获得2022年世界杯资格，那他们可以参赛，但必须以中立球队的身份比赛 。世界反兴奋剂机构表示，他们一直在给俄罗斯机会，让其“进行内部整改并重新加入全球反兴奋剂团体”，但俄罗斯却选择继续坚持其欺骗和否认的立场 。
美国反兴奋剂机构认为，对俄罗斯的处罚远远不够，俄罗斯本应被完全禁止参与国际竞赛 。但俄罗斯总理迪米特里·梅德韦杰夫表示，尽管俄罗斯在兴奋剂方面存在问题，但在一些运动员已经受到处罚的情况下，禁止俄罗斯运动员参赛的决定，看上去像是“慢性反俄歇斯底里症”的持续发作 。他希望俄罗斯组织就这一决定提起上诉 。另一名俄罗斯政府官员表示，俄罗斯会进行上诉，因为俄罗斯“必须捍卫本国运动员” 。
