The Anthem of the Russian Olympic Committee

WTF? They are supposed to be sanctioned. The least the IOC could do is deny them an anthem.

This is not the Russian National Anthem.  The Russian National anthem is badass.  This is a waltz.

Yeah that song was preposterous.  Also, let’s not pretend Russia got in trouble in the name of fair play, they got in trouble for breaking the status quo of “let the teams and athletes handle their doping themselves.”

They were trying to take too much of that Coke and Nike money.

they should have Fucik's 'Entrance of the Gladiators' as their anthem, gladiators being very, ahem, manly, dignified and 'Olympic' of course...

also Sidakov isn't Dagestani... not sure if Ossetians would be as negatively disposed to the Russian/Soviet anthem...

I don't think they should have had anything playing for them these games.

Right. They should have no anthem and NO nation on their jerseys. Make them play or compete in an all white or all black uniform.
