The International Olympic Committee says Russian athletes will be evaluated individually to determine their eligibility to compete in the Rio Games. A blanket ban was upheld against the country’s track and field athletes, but not for the whole team.
My understanding is that the ban is still in effect and the only way Russian athletes have a chance to participate in Rio is by applying individually to the world sports court yet have only 2 or 3 weeks to get into court. You can read the details in report above.
I have never written or been interested in writing about world politics though I have been watching this event very closely because a part of me was hoping this might be the domino that finally falls and we may have a chance to make a difference.
What do I mean by that? I don’t have an opinion about Putin or his politics. It is what it is, the games politicians play are not part of my reality, I know the game they play that is enough. This is not about politics or sports for that matter. This is about hard working athletes that have spent their lives preparing for the Olympics. This is about an opportunity for us to make a difference, by standing up and saying: If Russians can’t participate then we won’t either. By doing this we are sending THEM a message: “We got your number, we figured you out, we know what you are trying to do and it’s not going to work this time”.
Although it’s only been a few hours since the decision has been made, I am still hoping that we, you reading this will make that difference by posting on your FB, Twitter and whatever other social media you use to bring people together and join together for once. It’s not about Russians, or Putin or the Cabal or whatever game is being played out. It’s about US/WE/ HUMANITY standing up and saying no. We can do this. We can share this dream of Unity Consciousness, we can stand alongside our Russian brothers and sisters, even if we don’t like their politicians or leaders, we stand by them and let them know that their hard work and efforts will be recognized.
I ask that you put aside your political views, and see this as an opportunity to do something good, to try and unite and share with our Russian brothers and sisters our desire to boycott the Olympics in Rio if they are not allowed to participate. If we stand by and do nothing, we will be guilty to contributing war and separation, something we have had enough of. Have you not had enough of this bullshit? If you really care about humanity, don’t you feel it’s your responsibility to do something about it? You don’t have to leave your house or your recliner chair for that matter. All you have to do is use your fingers and mouse, keyboard and brain to spread the message and motivate others to do the same.
I know you can do this, I know you want what I want and that is peace, prosperity, freedom, equality and the right to live with basic necessities, without being controlled, poisoned, intoxicated, vaccinated, and to live on this planet that was created for us. Do it now, don’t wait, do it now, you owe it to LOVE, to Unity, to Humankind.
