The President of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Philip Craven in an interview with play it phone prankery promised to make everything that Russian athletes were not admitted to the next Olympic and Paralympic games.
Craven’s conversation with princedom Alexey “Lexus” Stolyarova were published in the framework of the “call” of the NTV channel that aired in the far East, reports “Interfax”.
The head of the IPC stated to his companion who introduced himself as head of the national anti-Doping Agency of the USA (USADA) Edwin Moses, that the Russians should not be allowed to the winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in 2018.
“In my opinion, they should not participate in the Olympics in South Korea, you need to make sure they didn’t get there. I agree with you completely. We are determined and will continue to maintain this morale,” said Craven.
He noted that the IPC is on a tougher position towards Russia than with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and its President Thomas Bach, who had tried to pressure him on this issue.
“Don’t worry, for our part, we will firmly stand by your position and to support all those who understand that Russian will not be able to be admitted to the Olympics until you accept all the rules until you show that they are a clean nation, not clean athletes, namely, a pure nation,” said Craven.
During the conversation, Craven also admitted that there is no “traditional evidence” of the existence of the state support system of doping in Russia, but “working on it” and the second part of the report of Richard McLaren on this topic needs to produce a bombshell.
Recall that the reason for the removal of the entire Paralympic team of the Russian Federation from the Games of 2016 was the report of the independent Commission of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) under the leadership of Richard McLaren on the state support program of doping in Russian sport, followed in 643 cases from 2011 to 2015.
