Winter Olympics 2018 - Pyeongchang, South Korea (February 9-25)

May as well start a thread on this with the good news that RUSSIA HAS BEEN BANNED (although some athletes may compete under a neutral banner).

Crazy news. Wonder how it'll be spun back in Russia.

It's a long way to go still for the IOC but this is a step in the right direction and a decision that took some guts.

I mean, not enough attention is made to the fact that the Russians were replacing their athletes urine via a HOLE IN A WALL. In 2014, not 1976! I mean, it's just absolutely insane.

Another great thing is that this will prevent a bunch of professional hockey players from breaching their contracts in order to play for their home country and steam roll over amateurs from other countries in order to win a gold medal.
