How The IOC Plans To Address Doping

In light of its recent decision not to bar Russian athletes from competing in Rio despite their use of performance-enhancing drugs, the International Olympic Committee is working to establish more effective protocols to keep the Games drug-free. Here are some ways the IOC plans to address doping:

  • Athletes to face rigorous testing if they lap another country’s athletes during the Parade of Nations

  • Olympic Village toilets to now funnel straight to laboratory

  • Establish in no uncertain terms that the IOC does not tolerate any form of corruption that isn’t political or monetary

  • Eliminate truck lifting as a sport

  • Mandatory post-match testing for any badminton player found launching a shuttlecock into low Earth orbit

  • IOC president to go undercover, get in too deep, win gold in decathlon

  • New three-strikes policy in which any country caught repeatedly doping must legally dissolve

  • Just run continuous disclaimer at bottom of NBC’s coverage informing viewers that results not as intrinsically inspiring as they might’ve thought
