Mamiashvili: “The lion’s share of international federations would vote for the admission of Russians to the Olympic Games without restrictions”

President of the Russian Wrestling Federation Mikhail Mamiashvili on the air of the show “Loud! on expressed confidence that the majority of international federations would support the admission of Russian athletes to the Olympic Games without restrictions.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced on December 8 that it would grant neutral status to Russian and Belarusian athletes who successfully qualified for the 2024 Summer Olympics. Russian athletes will be able to perform in Paris without a flag , anthem and other national symbols. The IOC banned the participation of athletes associated with security forces or who had expressed support for the SVO.

— How did the IOC announce the decision, in what mood do you live with this thought?

“This follows controversial recommendations announced by the IOC approximately two years ago. The IOC is looking for an opportunity to get out of the situation it has put itself in. There is no mention of these recommendations in any federation charter or statute. It was not the international federations or the sporting community that made the decisions, but a separate group of people belonging to an understandable community. But I don’t think that the decisions taken by the Vatican, controversial to say the least, were accepted by the flock. Probably, the decision would have been a little different depending on the desire of the herd on these issues. Identical sentiments and perspectives within the IOC can be traced here.

— If the decision had been taken by the IOC Athletes’ Commission, would it have been different?

– Certainly. I am convinced that the majority of international federations would vote for the admission of Russians without restrictions,” Mamiashvili said on the air of the show “Loud! “. on .
