From questionable wins and Deflategate to doping allegations and murder, here's a look at sports scandals that shocked the world.
On June 17, 2016, the the International Association of Athletics Federations, or IAAF, upheld its ban on Russian track and field athletes competing on the global stage over the country's lack of anti-doping efforts. The decision came following a 2015 report that detailed allegations of a "deeply rooted culture of cheating at all levels" in Russian athletics. While the ban on the Russian track and field team was also backed by the International Olympic Committee, some individual Russian athletes could still be cleared to compete in the Rio Games.
