Russia’s Track and Field Team booted out of 2016 Olympics

The world’s governing body for track and field, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), has banned Russia’s track team from competing in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil due to widespread illegal drug use. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has the final say on the matter, but recently announced they support the ban. However, Russia stated that it will appeal the move. Sebastian Coe, the president of the IAAF said his organization came to a unanimous decision on the matter and Russia doesn’t seem to be doing much of anything to tackle the cheating allegations.

Brazilian soccer legend Rivaldo tells fans not to bother coming to Olympics

Legendary Brazilian soccer star Rivaldo has warned potential visitors to his homeland not to bother showing up for the 2016 Olympic Games this August due to the current state of the country. The 44-year-old ex player of the Brazilian national team, Barcelona, and AC Milan, recently shared his opinion on an Instagram post. The former World Cup and 1999 Ballon d’Or winner, believes the nation, including the host city of Rio de Janeiro, is currently corrupt and unsafe due to its crime rate and the Zika virus.

Rivaldo wrote, “Things are getting uglier here every day. I advise everyone with plans to visit Brazil for the Olympics in Rio to stay in their country of origin. Your life will be in danger here. This is without even speaking about the state of public hospitals and all the Brazilian political mess. Only God can change the situation in our Brazil.”

Half of Cuban Field Hockey Team defects at Pan Am Games

It’s no wonder the Cuban men’s field hockey team was smoked 13-0 by Trinidad and Tobago during the current Pan Am Games in Toronto Canada. Half of them didn’t show up for the match as they all defected to the United States. They weren’t the only Cubans to defect during the event either, as four rowers also defected earlier on in the week. Sources stated that eight members of the 16-man field hockey team fled the country while one of the members said just seven of them took off.

With half of the team going AWOL, Cuba managed to field just eight players for the game against Trinidad. This means they played three men short for the contest as a team is made up of 11 players along with five more on the substitute’s bench. All eight players had to play the entire game, but at least they showed up for the fans instead of mailing the game in and losing it by default.

USA soccer player Abby Wambach took a shot to the face in their 3-opening win, and she’s got a new souvenir to show for it.

Wambach tweeted out this pic a day after the hit.

Abby Wambach's Black Eye

Here’s the video of the shot:

If you’ve even followed USA soccer remotely, you know that Wambach is as tough as they come. She even scored a goal after this injury, and you can bet she’ll score some more before these Olympic games are done.
