French biathlete Martin Fourcade said that he would discuss with his lawyer the possibility of filing a lawsuit against Olympic champion Anfisa Tool. The word athlete leads TASS.
According to Fourcade, it really hurt the word of the Russians that he receives medical support, which supposedly allows him to show good results. The Frenchman has stressed that he never took performance-enhancing drugs, and had not received therapeutic exemptions. “Never saw her, but she said about me in the Russian press. Think this is wrong,” said Fourcade.
The threat of court is hanging over the Tool because of the remarks voiced in interview “to the Soviet sports”. “Great athlete, great talent, but still some kind of medical support is received,” — said about Fourcade former biathlete. In response, Fourcade on Twitter suggested the presence of former athletes of the diagnosis: “I Hope not all former athletes fall into dotage. It happened”.
Fourcade is a five — time Olympic champion. French biathlete 11 times world champion and seven times won the overall world Cup standings.
Reztsova became three-time Olympic champion. At the Games in calgary, representing the USSR national team, she won gold in ski racing. Also on account of its two Olympic gold medals in biathlon in 1992 and 1994, respectively.
