How do you know someone at the Olympics is doping.
They wear T-shirts that say “I Don’t Do Doping.”
Also, they’re Russian athletes.
[update: The Russian have removed their video showing the bobsledder wearing an “I Don’t Do Doping” T-shirt]
Bobsledder Nadezhda Sergeeva tested positive for a banned substance, the Associated Press reports.
Russian doctors said they prescribed the heart drug to her. Sergeeva denies taking trimetazidine.
She’s the second Russian tossed out of the games in a doping case that got Russia as a country thrown out. Instead, the athletes are competing under a “wink-wink” arrangement in which they play under the Olympic flag.
