Head of the Russian Wushu Federation: “It is true that we refused to participate in the World Championships without the flag and anthem of the Russian Federation.  At the BRICS Games, we are building a new sporting reality”

President of the Russian Wushu Federation Gleb Muzrukov on the air of the program “Everyone for the match!” » said that the decision to refuse to participate in international competitions without the Russian flag and anthem was correct, and also noted that the BRICS Games would help build a new international sports reality.

The BRICS Games will take place from June 12 to 23 in the capital of Tatarstan.

– I think it was the right decision to refuse to participate in the World Championships without the flag and anthem of the Russian Federation. We were offered to compete under the flag of the European Union, but we decided to refuse; all athletes supported this proposal. “We are building a new international sports reality,” Muzrukov said on .

Also before the start of the BRICS Games, athletes of the Russian Wushu team, two-time world champion Sandra Konstantinova and world champion Pavel Muratov, spoke out.

– We are in excellent shape, we have been waiting for these Games for a very long time, we have been preparing for a very long time, with perseverance and responsibility. Our sports festival begins. I hope that we will raise the flag of our country very often and listen to the Russian anthem,” Konstantinova said on .

– The atmosphere is still as combative as ever. The team is in great shape. We trained together and prepared for the training camp for three weeks before the BRICS Games. “Everyone is in good shape, everything is going well, the mood is for victory,” added Muratov.

Broadcasts of the BRICS Games will be carried out on the channels of the Match sub-holding, as well as on streaming platforms.
