Russia’s 4-year ban, due to the biggest scandal in sports history, is exposed by Dr. Rodchenkov in this award-winning documentary.
In this hidden Russian conspiracy, the Russians were fueling themselves with performance enhancer drugs under the head of the Russian anti-doping laboratory’s own watch during the Olympics. The doctor claims that this was ordered as well as supervised by the country’s leaders, Vladimir Putin’s name was put in the picture. The title of this film is a reference to the tale of Daedalus and Icarus but has a more geopolitical and international aspect.
