    The Olympics should be banned.

    Every country on the face of the planet is broke, so why is a country on the verge of fiscal collapse hosting the Olympics which will cost them money they don't have, all so countries like Russia can dope their players so that the world can see how great Putin is?

    I can't believe that the games are still going ahead in view of the Zika virus. The Russian athletes are lucky that the decision has been made for them as I feel sure that they would not have been given the choice of dropping out.

    There is a cure in the works, well at least a preventative.

    USA garnered the first gold medal of the Olympics. Virginia Thrasher, shooting competition, China won silver and bronze.
