This week for homework we had to choose a news article to write about, i chose to write about an article from the dominion post which you can also go read more about here, basically what this article is about is Yuliya Stepanova, an Olympic runner hoping to compete this year at the Rio Olympics, she has now been banned from competing this year by telling on Russia for doping all their athletes. Now you would think that if a country was cheating you would disqualify them not the person who exposed the cheaters and is clean. One of the facts that is being used against her is that in 2013 she was taking drugs, Yuliya complains that she was forced to take them and is one of the reasons she told on Russia. I am appalled that IOC has decided to disqualify Yuliya for exposing the cheats and really frustrates me how they could possibly think that its the right decision
