Russia Is Exposed As A TOTAL Fraud

McLaren II Is Released – More than 1,000 Russian athletes benefited from the biggest doping scandal in history This morning Richard McLaren released his 2nd report on Russian doping and it’s as bad as one could possibly imagine. He provides 1,166 pieces of evidence exposing the elaborate state-sponsored doping scheme (which you can search yourself) that reached its peak at 2014 Sochi. Seemingly every Russian athlete in Sochi was involved as 100% of the of the 100 samples they’ve looked at were tampered with.
