Let’s all just stop for a moment and appreciate the stunning bravery of the International Olympic Committee:

It’s good to know that the IOC has standards after all. We were starting to believe they weren’t all that tough on Russia. Silly us!
Oh, now the IOC is going to punish the Russians? https://t.co/gQDJ65iSKX

Dopes. (See what we did there?)
The IOC finally takes a stand! "NO" on war…maybe now they'll take a stand on cheating. https://t.co/qJpQdo0aBj
