It seems to be reoccurring with human rights violations in Russia and the IOC continues to ignore it. It reinforces how corrupt and profit driven the IOC is.

Not to sound ignorant or like an idealist, but it's sad to see the entire purpose and 'spirit' of the Olympics is being tarnished.
So do we boycott the next Olympics in the US because of all their human rights violations as well?
