I didn't want to bring down the Rio thread with this topic because I do enjoy watching sports. But this is a troubling issue for sport, dopers are cheating clean athletes out of success and ultimately their livelihoods. www.nation.co.ke/sports/athletics/Michael-Rotich-recalled-from-Rio-after-doping-bribe-report/1100-3334866-pcs7i7z/index.htmlThis is a summary the Times investigation is behind a paywall: Kenyan athletics manager Michael Rotich recalled from Rio after doping bribe report. Rotich was filmed by the two media demanding 10,000 pounds (Sh1.3 million) for agreeing to warn a British coach about imminent doping tests.www.ibtimes.co.uk/two-athletes-sent-home-rio-olympics-failing-drugs-tests-1574689Antonis Martasidis is one of the of two athletes to be sent home on Saturday (7 August), following the suspension of Irish boxer Michael O'Reilly on Thursday. Martasidis, a Cypriot weightlifter, and an unnamed Greek competitor bring the total number of new cases since the start of the competition to three. I hope that is it, but sadly experience tells me it won't be.
