Sports / Shadiest moments of the Rio Olympics / Russian doping scandal

While doping scandals have been common over the years, Rio bore witness to perhaps the largest to date. Amid allegations of state-sponsored doping, the IOC banned 118 Russian athletes from competing in the 2016 Olympics, and the entire Russian Paralympic team was banned from the 2016 Paralympic games. The presence of a few Russian athletes that many felt should have been banned prompted some pointed remarks by other teams. In particular, Russian swimmer Yulia Efimova was included in the original IOC ban, but was reinstated just before the games began—despite having tested positive for banned substances previously.
