IOC won't ban Russia from Rio Olympics. Is the decision too soft? | The Tylt
The International Olympic Committee won't ban Russia from the Rio Olympics. Instead, the international governing federations will allow some Russian athletes to participate on a case-by-case basis. While some commend the IOC for not banning every single Russian athlete, others say the IOC copped out. Is the #IOCTooSoft or is the #IOCFair?

Good luck to fair-play, drug-free Olympians who deserved a whole lot better than what they got today from a weak-willed, buck-passing IOC— Dave Stubbs (@Dave_Stubbs) July 25, 2016
If the response by people is "not surprised" regarding IOC voting against complete Russia ban -- isn't that a concern?— Devin Heroux (@Devin_Heroux) July 24, 2016
So happy Russia's clean athletes won't be punished for the state's mistakes. Hopefully the IOC can punish the state in a different way.— The Gymternet (@thegymterdotnet) July 24, 2016
