Irina Rodnina accused the head of the IOC of destroying the Olympic movement

President of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach is trying to destroy the Olympic movement, said three-time Olympic champion in figure skating, State Duma deputy Irina Rodnina. She is quoted by Sport24.

Rodnina reproached Bach for being biased. According to the athlete, ultimatums to Russian athletes will not lead to anything good. Allowing athletes to compete based on political views will turn the sport into chaos.

According to Bach, athletes who have distanced themselves from the situation in Ukraine should be able to compete under a neutral flag.

Earlier, FIS thought about the admission of Russian skiers to international competitions. This was written by the Telegram-channel “Radiotochka NSN”.
