He imbibed racist ideas during his stay in Vienna, which he later fled to avoid service in the army (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 2007). After World War 1, Germany was forced to pay reparations to France and Great Britain. People in Germany were upset and angry over this, Hitler took advantage of this and gave them a target to focus their anger and resentment on: the Jewish population.

While modern dance had historically aspired to high seriousness and spirituality, Tharp's work was edgy.” Tharp expanded the boundaries of contemporary performance and modern dance through her over exaggerated and unpredictable movements danced to pop, classical music, or silence.

Doping is, as defined by Dictionary.com, “an act or instance of giving a narcotic, usually a steroid, to an athlete to unfairly boost performance in a competition.” So, in a basic sense, Russian athletes were cheating.
