PRC president Pozdnyakov described Russia’s participation in the Olympic Games-2024 as a priority after passing the election
MOSCOW, December 20 – RIA Novosti, Pavel Levkovich. Organization head Stanislav Pozdnyakov said that the Russian team’s participation and qualification for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris is a priority for the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC).
At the end of February, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended, as a preventive measure, that international sports federations should not allow Russian and Belarusian athletes to compete due to the situation in Ukraine.
“We see what the politicization of sport has led to. Pierre de Coubertin argued that sport makes our imperfect world better. The foundations are crumbling.”
Previously, the head of the US Olympic Committee (USOPC), Suzanne Lyons, advocated the admission of the Russian team to the 2024 Olympics in Paris without the national flag. The Asian Olympic Council (OCA) has called for making it easier for athletes from Russia and Belarus to participate in competitions under its auspices. The Olympic Summit urged the IOC to review the OCA’s initiative on the participation of Russian athletes who comply with the Olympic Statutes and do not violate the sanctions.
