Travis Tygart quotes
The level of frustration among athletes is at an all time high.
Many, including clean athletes and whistleblowers, have demonstrated courage and strength in confronting a culture of state-supported doping and corruption within Russia.
The report concluded "beyond a reasonable doubt a mind-blowing level of corruption within both Russian sport and government that goes right to the field of play.
We're not asking for the worst, and obviously we hope there's no doping going on by states. But if we're not preparing for all potential outcomes, then we're not fulfilling our promise to clean athletes.
Obviously, banning Russian track and field from the Olympics is the right outcome. The world's clean athletes came together and demanded that their voices were heard.
This is a heartbreaking example of how the win-at-all-costs culture of sport, if left unchecked, will overtake fair, safe and honest competition, but for clean athletes, it is a reassuring reminder that there is hope for future generations to compete on a level playing field without the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
