The Newsmakers: Russia Olympics Ban

It's a moment unprecedented in Olympian history. Russia has become the first country banned from track and field competitions at the Olympics for doping. It follows allegations from whistleblowers of widespread state-sanctioned use of performance enhancing drugs.
