What a terrific documentary. The Russian Lab Director is a hoot...
Highly recommend.

Listen to the Joe Rogan podcast with the creator of the documentary. Far, far better (and longer) then the doc itself, goes in to much greater detail and fleshes out some of the stories.

Pretty crazy stuff.

Wife and I watched it the other night. Very good documentary.

Interesting how the Lab Director pretty much said that it never stopped after 1980, its been continuing and only getting better.

There is a cartoon on Telegraph that has a guy answering the phone in "Moscow Lab"

"No this is state-sponsored doping. You want state-sponsored poisoning"

It was a great a movie. I recall there being a plan in place to duplicate the deception process used in Sochi in the World Cup.

Ian, A gent from London who writes for the SportDw posted the distance covered, speeds and duration of sprints by country during a match.

2018 World Cup

2014 World Cup


Draw you own conclusions.

Anyone surprised by Russia's success so far in a world sporting event on their own soil?

Suffer Well.

Probably a combination of match fixing and doping.

Can't wait for quatar's team to finally break out in 2022.

The US needs better doping programs? Seven points higher in 2014 than Russia in 2018 and we can’t even make the WC? Our programs obv suck.

We have a better plan for the future. Detain children from countries that are good in soccer and give them a spot on the team!

Suffer Well.
