President of the Federation of Cross-Country Skiing of Russia, three-time Olympic champion Elena Vyalbe suggested that the former head of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory Grigory Rodchenkov was recruited while working in Canada. She told about this in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda. Related materials 19:29 – February 9th “I think he was long ago recruited. Even when he worked in Canada. One person can not come up with such a plan, “she said, reflecting on the actions of the WADA informant and the testimony that he provided in court. “I know Grisha for many years. He is not a very healthy person, “says Vialbe. – A man who tried to commit suicide and stabbed himself to himself – it’s because it says a lot about his sanity. February 12 Rodchenkov told in the air of the American CBS television channel about the geography of doping violations. According to his calculations, over twenty countries actively use prohibited drugs in training athletes. “We are sinners. Sports has nothing to do with it. There will always be 10-15 percent of incorrigible people, “he said. WADA’s investigation, based on Rodchenkov’s testimony, led to the withdrawal of the Russian national team from participation in the Olympics. Participation in the Games-2018 is accepted only by athletes who have received an invitation from the International Olympic Committee (IOC). However, the “purity” of the athlete is not the final criterion for admission – the leaders of the Russian team Viktor An, Anton Shipulin and Sergei Ustyugov were not invited without explanation. None of them was ever suspected of violating anti-doping rules. More important news in the Telegram channel «The ribbon of the day» . Subscribe!
