Olympic champion in speed skating and State Duma deputy Svetlana Zhurova assessed the likelihood of Russians refusing the conditions of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for admission to tournaments. Her words are quoted by Championship.com.

“I believe in our athletes. I am sure that they will not go against the country. Thomas Bach provokes our guys, ”said Zhurova. She added that if one of the athletes nevertheless condemns the actions of Russia, then this will go down in history.

On September 30, Bach spoke about the participation of Russian athletes in international competitions. “Those who distanced themselves [от ситуации на Украине]should be able to compete under a neutral flag,” he said.
