    Due to widespread systematic doping, covering it up, then destroying evidence.

    They have 21 days to appeal to the Court of Sports Arbitration. Often, sentences are reduced at this court.

    Birds of a feather.
    These are Trump's "friends."

    But the Trumpettes are apparently going to either (1) ignore this news entirely or (2) say it's politically contrived by the Deep State.

    Yes. And because that´s more than Russia, the USA ranks first.

    Afraid not. And you're going to have to provide me with a link, because there was nothing in the Wiki article about the US losing any medals in 2016.
    The majority of medals have been stripped in athletics (50, including 19 gold medals) and weightlifting (47, including 13 gold medals). The country with the most stripped medals is Russia (and Russian associated teams), with 46, four times the number of the next highest, and more than 30% of the total. The Post-Soviet states account for more than 60% of the overall total.

    Not blaming him; just pointing out that we are judged by the company we keep.
