2018 Winter Olympics: Russian official accuses IOC of tyranny – Sport

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 | bitcoin updates


The horror of the Olympics exclusion of many top stars is huge, but a boycott of the games in Pyeongchang is out of the question for the Russians. "We have to talk to the International Olympic Committee and insist on our rights, as far as possible," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday in Moscow. The most important thing is to stay calm – "in the interest of our athletes". Now "it is important to avoid such words as boycott", said the confidant of President Vladimir Putin the Agency Tass.Der chairman of the Russian Speed ​​Skating Association, Alexei Krawzov, meanwhile, has confirmed that the world record holder and gold candidate Denis Juskov and Pavel Kulishnikov are not on the list of invited athletes. "That's a shame. I am deeply outraged by the IOC Commission's unfair decision to exclude almost all of our top athletes from the Games, "he added, cursing the IOC as a despot and tyrant trampling on all laws and destroying people's fate . "As he confirmed, there are only four speed skaters on the IOC list of 389 Russians who are eligible for the launch in South Korea. The criticism of the IOC is also strong in Russian media. The newspaper "Sport-Express" described the IOC as "International Olympic Killer". Ultimately, it is decided by facial inspection, who is allowed in. It gives the impression that IOC leader Thomas Bach "wants to stifle Russian sport or provoke a boycott." Final list on SaturdayThe IOC had excluded the National Olympic Committee of Russia from being warned against systematic doping. Proven doping-free Russian athletes are only allowed to compete under the neutral flag in the competitions from 9 to 25 February at the invitation of the IOC. The final list of eligible Russians should be published on Saturday. Sports lawyer Michael Lehner still expects "no lawsuit" of the stars. Due to the shortness of time, he does not see any chance for athletes to claim their right to start in the "normal way" at the sports court CAS. From 30 January, however, there is the possibility to call the ad hoc commission of the sports court. "That would be the safest procedural way for them." The sports lawyer expects agreements at the highest level. "Sport policy, I think that Thomas Bach and Vladimir Putin have headed down to a very specific scenario, you could call it a deal." He could therefore "not imagine that there is a go-go for individual athletes from the Russian side, now to the Invitations to fight, "said Lehner the German Press Agency. Until Wednesday, it was unclear whether athletes pull against the outreach in front of the CAS, as 42 IOC lifelong Russians currently do.

Ricco Groß renews criticismAlso Ricco Groß, the German coach of the Russian biathlon men, attacked the IOC violently and demanded a public statement for the supposed off of relay Olympic champion Anton Schipulin. "On the one hand, the Biathlon World Federation says that everything is OK and he can start in the World Cup. On the other hand, the IOC says that everything is not all right and that he can not start in Pyeongchang. For a public reason must be called, "said Gross the news portal t-online.de.Sexschnellerlauf world record holder Juskow was shocked. "IM clean. I was always honest, "he revolted on the Dutch TV channel NOS. "I have been tested hundreds of times." Juskov won the world title three times between 2013 and 2016. By 2008, he had been blocked by the Russian Federation, because he had consumed marijuana. Kulischnikov had already been allowed to pursue the games in Sochi because of doping only from afar. After his two-year suspension, he won the 2015 and 2016 World Cup title over 500 meters, in 2016 over 1000 meters and in the sprint four-in-hand. As the first speed skater, he broke through the 34-second sound barrier over 500 meters in 33.98 seconds and holds the world record. The day before, the IOC had stated that he had no reasons for the expulsion of Russian athletes. Among others, the six-time short-track Olympic champion Viktor Ahn, the top-ski cross-country skiers Sergei Ustyugov and Ruslan Sakharov and figure skating Olympic champion Xenia Stolbowa were not invited. Minister of Sports Pavel Kolobkov announced legal and financial support for athletes who are not allowed to travel to South Korea. (AP)
