Russian athletes to be classed as neutral

I suppose what I was writing about here, about sport being a unifying force which brings nations together, is somewhat complicated when you have nutters like Putin running countries. While it’s a bit perverse to even be thinking about such issues when people are being killed, I’m glad to see that the IPC has chosen to make Russian athletes compete as neutrals in the upcoming winter games. The whole world must unite in telling Putin that what he has done cannot be tolerated, and that includes the world of sport. Pressure must be piled on him to stop what he’s doing in any way we can. If sport really is a force for good, I’m glad to see it being used to send a message to those who do wrong.
