Leave them vacant
RE: The IOC is going to give upgrade two Russian dopers to 2012 Olympic silver medals in 8 and 1500 - Poistogova and Tomashova
The whole doping issue is so bad, I'd still vote to leave medal spots won by dopers vacant. The races without the dopers would look so different that to say the next person up would have won a totally drug free race is incorrect. Who knows how someone left off a team might have performed. Leave the spots vacant as a reminder of how bad the situation is. Any medals chart should have a legend stating what country sent the doped athlete to the Olympics.
How about start pulling spots from nations for busted athletes? USA 1500 pops an Olympic positive, next cycle USA only gets two 1500 athletes. Maybe that'd get nations more interested in proper test of athletes.
