“Tasoev did not ask to receive gold, he accepted as a man the initial result at the World Championships” – judo coach

russian judoka Inal Tasoev he did not blame anyone for a mistake at the world championships and did not ask to be awarded gold, he accepted the initial result of the tournament like a man, coach Mikhail Rakhlin told . the athlete, president of the Turbostroitel judo club.

Earlier on Friday, it became known that the International Judo Federation (IJF) reviewed the results of the last match of the World Championship in the over 100 kg category, in which Tasoev lost to three-time French Olympic champion Teddy Rinse. In extra time, the Russian laid the opponent on his back, but the attack went unmarked. The IJF conceded the error, stating that “points for Tasoev’s counterattack could have been awarded”, and ended up awarding gold to Tasoev and Riner in that fight. The world championship took place in May in Doha.

This is space news! Justice prevailed. I am happy that reasonable and professional people work within the International Judo Federation. It is good that the Russian Judo Federation initiated this problem and brought it to an end in a very diplomatic way. I would like to note how worthily Inal himself perceived this final, how he perceived his result. After the final, Inal said: “I did my best. My job is to fight and win. Then I will be stronger.” He didn’t blame anyone for it, didn’t ask, didn’t swear. He accepted this result masculinely. The inner strength in him is even greater than the outer strength.

Inal is from the Ossetian school of judo, he works with Irbek Aylarov. A year and a half ago, he came to see me in Saint Petersburg and told me that he wanted to play for the Turbostroitel club, so that I could help him, support him and participate in his preparation. Inala prepared Aylarov more, but we work with him as a team. Everyone is responsible for their own area of ​​work, only a team can do a great job,” Rakhlin told .
