“I would be one of the solutions in the positive or negative direction – that is, if we deprive the world Championships like athletics, so we were under neutral flags. Because then there is no point in running. What is it then? Glow on TV and earn some points? I never wanted” – quoted Shipulin “Kalashnikov Media”.
As reported, the international biathlon Union (IBU) refused to restore the full membership of the Union of biathletes of Russia.
“IBU Congress voted against the submission of the Russian biathlon Union for full membership in the IBU. The result of the RBU shall remain a provisional member of the IBU,” – said the press service of the IBU.
In December 2017 RRF was restricted in his rights because of doping scandals with Russian athletes. The result was drastically reduced by the application of the Russian biathletes to the Olympics in Pyeongchang. Among those who couldn’t take part in the Games in 2018, was Shipulin.
“I’m from this dirt already very tired since the Olympics, with these tolerances, nedopushchenie. One side has already learned to ignore this situation, on the other, of course, it is unpleasant. Pull some extra emotions, creating some extra hassle,” he said on Friday.
Previously, IBU informed the Russian biathlon Union that four Russian biathletes have violated anti-doping rules, and he promised to investigate. Later sports, the media published the names of the athletes, which the IBU has informed on the beginning of investigation into possible anti-doping violations. Among them, Evgeny Ustyugov and Svetlana Sleptsova, Alexander Pechenkin and Alexander Chernyshev.
According to media reports, two-time Olympic champion Ustyugov accused of SBR that the Union does not intend to support in this matter, and he intends to consider other possible independent appeal against the charges. The athlete, whose words are quoted “Match TV”, reported that rejects the accusations of the IBU anti-doping rule violation, and intends to appeal in the courts. Ustyugov has said that all doping tests in his career were negative.
