Elena Valletta: Grigory Sysoev / RIA Novosti
The President of Federation of ski races 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 it in interview “to Komsomol truth”.
“I think it’s long been recruited. Even when he worked in Canada. One person this plan is not to come up,” she said, talking about the actions of the informant WADA and the evidence he gave in court. “Grisha, I know for many years. He is not quite healthy people, says Vyalbe. — A man who tried to commit suicide himself stabbed, it’s says a lot about his sanity.
12 Feb Rodchenkov said on the American television channel CBS about the geography of doping violations. According to his calculations, more than twenty countries are actively using illegal drugs in the training of athletes. “We have sinned. Sports nothing to do with it. There are always 10-15 percent of incorrigible people,” he said.
The WADA investigation, based on the testimony of Rodchenkova, resulted in the removal of the Russian team from participation in the Olympics. Participation in the Games-2018 will only accept athletes who have received an invitation from the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The “purity” of the athlete is not the final criterion of the admission of leaders of the Russian team Viktor Antonov, Anton Shipulin and Ustyugov Sergei have not received invitations without explanation. None of them had ever suspected anti-doping rule violation.
