Russia’s track and field athletes will not be able to compete in the Rio Olympics, the International Association of Athletics Federations decided on Friday.

In a historic decision, the IAAF voted to extend a ban of the All Russian Athletics Federation that has kept its athletes out of international competition since a World Anti-Doping Agency independent commission report released in November concluded Russia was running a state-sponsored doping program in athletics.

Toronto, Quebec City passing on these games, enough said. Sorry but the Olympics sure aren't what they used to be and a city like Toronto knows that only too well.

Does anybody really care about these Rio Olympics? I sure don't.
