That's just track and field, right?

Wrong.

"Any punishment would almost certainly include Russia’s ban from next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, but it could extend to competitions in any sport whose governing body is a signer of WADA’s doping code, including soccer’s World Cup, track and field’s world championships and dozens of other sporting events."

I would be surprised. Leaving Russia out of track-- while allowing individuals back in-- is not such a big deal. But banning them from sports where they dominate would be very different. We already know they were not banned from the worlds.

No reason to believe pootie isn’t doping them across the board. 

Agreed, but if it's the sports governing body that is doing the booting (as opposed to the IOC), booting Pootie's guys from wrestling will be hard for UWW.
