No Dirty Athletes Go To Rio

“Only clean athletes should be able to compete”

International Weightlifting Federation (IWF)

The national weightlifting teams of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus could be banned from the Summer Olympics for anti-doping violations.

The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) said the ban is based to the re-testing of samples taken at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics in Beijing and London. The implementation of a one-year ban must first be ratified by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Does anyone have samples from London 1948? I think the results might be shocking.

By the way, how much are the tickets to Rio?

75 Years Ago


On June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union and began the war on the Eastern Front that lasted from June 22, 1941, to May 9, 1945 and cost the Soviet Union over 25 million lives.

It was 75 years ago.

Balderis vs. Rutherford


Jim Rutherford won the best NHL GM 2015-16 tonight.

As a General Manager in Pittsburgh, Rutherford brought the Penguins to the the Stanley Cup championship this year. Before that he served as a GM of the Hartford Whalers and Carolina Hurricanes and they won the Cup in 2006.

Congrats to Mr. Jim Rutherford with outstanding job done!

Prior to his career in team management, Jim Rutherford  was a solid 12-season career as an NHL goaltender in Pittsburgh, Detroit, Toronto and Los Angeles from 1970-71 to 1982-83. He also played for Team Canada at the World Championships in 1977 and 1979.

The memorabilia for this article shows duel between Jim Rutherford (Canada) and Helmut Balderis (USSR) in Vienna, Austria at the WC-77. Balderis is a 24-year old prospect from Riga for Team CCCP. Rutherford was selected to play for Team Canada at a historical moment – they returned to the IIHF Worlds after an eight-year absence with a team comprised completely of NHL players from teams that had missed the playoffs.

Just a blast from the past!

We can’t celebrate the present without celebrating the past.

That’s why our super congrats to Mr. Jim Rutherford with the Best GM in the NHL Award and Balderisomania continues at Chidlovski.Com!




Bye Bye Rio


“Where In the World Is Rio de Janeiro?”

Looks like Team Russia might not be a part of 2016 Summer Olympics.

“Where In the World Is Rio de Janeiro?”

“Who cares?” answers Russia.

For those who remember Summer Olympics in 1980 and 1984, it was a sad moment to see the Games without the strongest athletes in them.

Those were times of politics overrulling sports competition.

What is it now?

“Where In the World Is Rio de Janeiro?”

All of these insane ideas of alternative Meldonium Games are total desperado.

No Olympics, no sports. Just some freak games.

Time to think ahead.

As they say, and justice for all…
