The head of the Russian Ski Racing Federation (FLGR), Elena Vyalbe, called an unacceptable condition for the performances of athletes in a neutral status. Her words are quoted by Match TV.

“If it will be with the requirement to sign a declaration in which the athletes will have to actually renounce the country, then this issue will not even be considered,” she said. Vyalbe considers it possible to participate in tournaments under the flag of the International Ski Federation (FIS) or FLGR.

On September 22, the FIS hinted at a possible return of the Russians to tournaments. “We are not talking about holding competitions in Russia, but about the participation of athletes in federation events and World Cups,” said Michel Vion, Secretary General of the organization.
