The ideal of the modern Olympic games was to promote competition among amateur athletes.
The Soviet Union decided to sponsor thier athletes, ruining the amateur aspect of the games.
The Olympics were also about fairness, then Russia decided to sanction and cover up doping which is why they've been banned.
This is the worst example of nationalism and politics that is antithetical to the spirit of the games.
Keep this in mind when you start disparaging athletes who compete for a different country because of thier heritage or because the competition was too tough in the country they used to live in. The Games are to celebrate sport and competition and athletes, not to boost national pride (at any cost) or be a propaganda tool.
Respect the athletes, respect the sports and respect the Games.
