This is the type of idiocy propaganda brings to unhinged people. Russian athletes haves been under massive political attack and scrutiny the past few years. Across the board they are having a ton of success doing as good or better than ever. For example, one of the people being attacked Nikitina, won a gold medal at the world cup in Salt Lake a couple weeks ago. This girl has been scrutinized to death and is better than ever. Also keep in mind at the Olympics, Russia basically did well on the back of figure skaters and two foreigners and were avg or below in hockey, speed skating, biathlon, cross country. So if there was some sort of scheme it really wasn't successful at all. Figure skaters and two foreigners brought home the medal count for them.
