Member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Adam Pengilly left disappointed with the acquittal of the court of arbitration for Sport (CAS) against the Russian athletes accused of doping at the Games in Sochi. His words leads to “bi-Bi-si”.
“Liars and thieves allowed to prevail. CAS failed. We need to reconsider attitude to the leading managers of sports and the legal system, as the largest fraud in the history of the Olympic games and state-supported doping are punished slightly,” said Pengilly.
February 1, CAS acquitted 28 Russian athletes accused of violating anti-doping rules at the Olympics in 2014. Their appeal was granted, and the decision of the IOC to their lifelong exclusion from the Olympic games cancelled.
Pengelly — Vice-President of the International Federation of bobsleigh and skeleton. The functionary is of the opinion that in Russia there is a state doping system. Before the Olympic games in 2016, he urged to exclude from the competition all Russian athletes.
