RUSSIA’S weightlifters face being kicked out of the Rio Olympics for repeated doping violations Off-White x Nike Vapormax Bianche Scontate , days after the International Olympic Committee upheld a ban on their track and field athletes.
Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus are to be suspended for one year by the International Weightlifting Federation over failed retests from the 2008 and 2012 Games in Beijing and London.
The IWF executive announced this month that 20 suspicious cases had been found in retrospective tests carried out on samples from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
Following those revelations, the IWF held a special executive committee meeting on Wednesday in Tblisi, Georgia, where it reaffirmed its commitment to “zero tolerance” of doping with the aim of “protecting clean athletes”.
“The IWF Executive Board has decided that national federations confirmed to have produced three or more anti-doping rule violations in the combined re-analysis process of the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games shall be suspended for one year,” a statement said.
The federations were named as Russia Off-White x Nike Vapormax Nere Bianche Scontate , Kazakhstan and Belarus.
The ban will be applied if the athletes’ “B” samples are confirmed by the IOC as testing positive for prohibited substances.
The move was strongly criticized by Russian Sports Minister Vitali Mutko.
“I don’t understand these decisions. They look like a case of psychosis and a deviation from every legal standard and principle,” he told news agency R-Sport.
“How can you penalize a team that has to go to the Olympics in 2016 for violations committed in 2008 or 2012?”
He described the situation as “chaotic”, adding that Russia “was going to look at all the decisions” before deciding whether to appeal.
The IWF also punished three others — North Korea, Azerbaijan and Moldova — with sanctions that will reduce the number of slots available to them in Rio.
Their punishment was for committing multiple doping offenses in 2015, a year that saw an unprecedented 24 positive tests at the world championships in Houston, Texas air max tn uomo scontate , in December.
Azerbaijan and North Korea are both to be stripped of one man and one woman competitor, and Moldova will lose two men from their Rio quota of lifters.
The statement said a total of 11 places had been taken away from six teams who had committed four or more doping offenses last year. The other three were Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, whose sanctions will only apply should they be allowed to compete.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers may be without star LeBron James when they open the season Tuesday against the Boston Celtics.
James, who has been remarkably durable during his career and never missed an opener air max tn donne scontate , skipped a bulk of the preseason because of his ankle, playing 30 minutes in just one contest.
When asked about James' chances of playing, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said after Sunday's practice session: "You got to ask him. You got to see how it feels. Just getting the treatment, working the right way and see what happens."
Lue added James was on the floor to go over some plays before getting in a cardio workout and some treatment.
"He's getting older, like me," Lue joked. "It's something that he's been trying to work on. He tried to come back and play air max tn scontate , but his ankle could have set him back a little bit."
When the NBA released its schedule for the 2017-18 season on Aug. 14, the Cavaliers' season opener against the Celtics was already intriguing as an Eastern Conference finals rematch.
Eight days later, when Cleveland swapped Kyrie Irving to Boston for Jae Crowder, Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic and a first-round draft pick, the matchup took on an entirely different meaning.
But Lue refused to place any added significance on Tuesday's challenge against the Celtics.
"It's one game. I know both teams want to see each other air max 97 summit white scontate , but at the end of the day, you don't win a championship by winning or losing the first game. So they're up for the game, they're ready for it, but that's not our main focus playing Boston," said Lue.

As Harvey Weinstein continues his fall from grace, he’s dragging some big-name celebrities through the mud with him.
The Oscar-winning producer has been accused of sexual abuse and harassment across a period of decades, with stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie coming forward and telling their stories. Weinstein’s alleged behavior has prompted statements from George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon air max 97 donne scontate , among others, but many in Hollywood are feigning ignorance. And Affleck and Damon in particular have people really riled up.
“I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades,” Affleck exclaimed via Twitter on Tuesday. “The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others… we must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power.”
One of those women who came forward is having none of Affleck’s statement. On Tuesday air max 97 uomo scontate , actress Rose McGowan simply tweeted, “Ben Affleck f**k off.”
McGowan then tweeted directly to Affleck, alleging he knew of Weinstein’s behavior years ago.
@benaffleck “GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT” you said that to my face. The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie.
