On March 3, 2023, the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) extended the ban on the participation of athletes from Russia and Belarus in international competitions.
“We have already missed all the qualifying stages for getting a license for the Olympics. For us to get to the Olympics, a miracle has to happen. But why do we need such a path if they don’t want to see us there, if the attitude towards Russian athletes is like that?! I don’t understand what’s the point of going to the Olympics,” Dalaloyan said.
