7 Russians suspended

I don't think this has been reported yet, but it is reported that 7 russian tracksters (women) have been suspended by the IAAF for failing drug tests and will not be in Beijing. URL below:

I posed the question on the other thread, but still trying to find the answer.
Will the Russians be allowed to enter alternate athletes (assuming they have the A standard) into the slots previously earned by the now-suspended athletes?

The deadline was today(7/31) so theoretically, yes.

So, Dope Talk got unlocked. :shock: I was wondering why this forum wasn't maxed-out with posts about the Ruskies. Ya really have to pay attention around here.

Edit -- and now, this thread has been moved to D.T. OK, whatever.
