Follow the timeline of @heywoodu for a lengthy series of tweets detailing the information on the documentary, and the fallout since. Here are just a few:
#Doping Former Russian biathlon trainer (+3x world champion) Pavel Rostovtsev: "I'll look like an idiot if I say that I believe Starykh's.."— Heywoodu U. Cuddleme (@heywoodu) December 5, 2014
#Doping "..excuse that her positive test came from cosmetics. Nobody believes that." And: "Those cases are no accident, it's systematic."— Heywoodu U. Cuddleme (@heywoodu) December 5, 2014
#Doping Anonymous IAAF-source: "Yes, there is at least 1 person within IAAF who accepts money to cover up positive tests."— Heywoodu U. Cuddleme (@heywoodu) December 3, 2014
#Doping "RUSADA + testing lab in Moscow + sports federations use a system to protect national interests and cover the whole thing up."— Heywoodu U. Cuddleme (@heywoodu) December 2, 2014
Is it even anything knew? The Mail on Sunday tried to bust this open over a year ago - SPECIAL INVESTIGATION: Drugs, bribery and the cover-up!
So who's going to cop the brunt of this - Russia? Does anyone really have the balls to stand up to them? The Russian Anti-Doping Agency intends to investigate itself - that's going to be as useless as FIFA investigating itself!
Russia probes systematic doping
In three years' time, will we return to the era of the Berlin Wall, when specialist events are held in Russia because nobody else will play with them, and they won't even bother to waste time drug testing anyone?
The last time I blogged about a Russian doping scandal, I received a pile of abusive comments, all from Russia defending their cheating ways. And that's why comments are now more stringently regulated. Do they plan on defending this one with their deluded diatribe?
