The Russian whistleblower Grigory Rodchenkov continues with its revelations about massive doping among Russian athletes.
He stood up in the Netflix documentary 'Icarus', with precise descriptions on the extensive doping. Now his book 'The Rodchenkov Affair' has been released 30. July.
Rodchenkov, who is staying in a secret location in the UNITED states for fear of Vladimir Putin and the russians, tells among other things in the book, how the former Soviet union has lied about the boycott of the OLYMPICS in Los Angeles in 1984.
the Explanation was that they did not appear, because the americans four years earlier had boycotted the OLYMPICS in Moscow.
According to Rodchenkov this is, however, far from the truth. It shows an excerpt of the book, as the Daily Mail has brought.
His explanation is that the soviets were afraid of being taken for doping.
'the Soviets had planned to hide a laboratory for doping control on a ship in Los Angeles harbor.'
'the Test of athletes before departure was not enough - the soviets had to have their own lab on-site to ensure that no 'dirty' soviet athletes could meet up', he writes in the book.

the Plan was that the soviets thus be able to test their own athletes in order to examine whether dopingen still be able to be measured in the body before they came into the OLYMPICS-the city.
'Semenov (the director of the Russian control laboratory for doping, red.) instructed me to hide the laboratory instruments on board the luxury cruise ship 'Mikhail Sholokhov', named after a famous soviet writer who won the nobel prize in 1965', saith the Rodchenkov.
So far they came, however, never.
Los Angeles wouldn't let the ship into port. Instead, the soviets completely boycott the OLYMPICS when they could not otherwise ensure that their athletes would not be taken for doping.
