An Olympic Scandal

WALT: Choose a historical Olympic scandal.  Explain what happened and the outcome.  Was it appropriately dealt with?  Why / Why not?

Russian Athletes were found to be doping in previous Olympic games. Later people found out that their government had been helping them to cheat. The result of this is that some Russian athletes that were going to compete in this year's Olympics were banned. Some of the Russian athletes even turned up to the Olympics ready to play but then they were turned down.  I think that the problem was appropriately dealt with because they broke the rules and they should get a penalty for doing it.
