“All doping tests in my entire athletic career were negative, and all of them I handed in strict accordance with the rules. I have nothing to justify to them. And the fans, I’m sure, for a long time all understand. A shame that WADA (World anti-doping Agency – if) uses the international Federation to solve their political issues”, – quotes the words of E. Ustyugova “Match TV”.
“To be honest, I’d do it all spat, everything is clear with this story. I for myself and my family know that all my medals clean. And we are just another party banned for some ridiculous unsportsmanlike criteria. But spit can’t, because behind the guys we won the relay in Sochi (Alexey Volkov, Dmitry Malyshko, Anton Shipulin – if). Spit on them have no right,” – said the athlete.
“I will defend myself. If necessary, the courts. Fortunately, there are people who always supported us, who told me that their not leaving,” said Ustyugov.
Earlier media have reported the names of the athletes, which the IBU has informed about the beginning of the investigation into possible doping violations. Among them, Evgeny Ustyugov and Svetlana Sleptsova, Alexander Pechenkin and Alexander Chernyshev.
According to media reports, Ustyugov accused the Russian biathlon Union (RBU) that SBR is not going to support in this matter, and he intends to consider other possible independent appeal against the charges.
In addition to the men’s relay at the Olympic games in Sochi in 2014, Ustyugov wins mass start at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.
