The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) banned Russia indefinitely after the World Anti-Doping Agency uncovered Russian athletes in a variety of sports using banned substances.
The report went even further than that, though, and claimed the Russian government had knowledge of the doping program — and was even helping the athletes to acquire and use the illegal substances!
European Athletics president Svein Arne Hansen reacted to the news in an interview:
"For the moment they have to fulfill the conditions, but I cannot really see them competing in Rio. We will have the first report to the IAAF in March but for the moment they have to really, really put a lot of effort in to compete in Rio. They must have a cultural change. They must get rid of all those people from before."
While Russia has denied the allegations, President Vladimir Putin (pictured above) did acknowledge doping as an unacceptable action:
"The struggle with doping in sports, unfortunately, remains a pressing issue and it requires unending attention … It's absolutely clear that athletes who stay away from dope shouldn't be held responsible [for those who do]."
We'll see what happens soon enough… because the Olympics are just about six months away!
We're not sure WHY these people are famous, but we are definitely here for the drama!
Alexis Ren and Jay Alvarrez first shot to social media fame back in 2015 when the Internet dubbed them one of the original examples of "relationship goals," as they shared beautiful travel content from exotic locations to Instagram and YouTube.
But we guess all the vacationing wasn't enough to maintain this relationship, because shit just got really, really real this week as the former love birds took shots at each other online!
Reports surfaced a few months back that there was trouble in various paradises for the models, but Miz Ren publicly confirmed the split this week on Twitter in a savage rant calling out not only Jay's penis size, but how the "fuckboy" allegedly ended things.
