Athletistic / Athletics. Russian athlete and Olympic high jump champion Maria Lasitskene said she could not accept missing the Olympics. Like other Russian athletes, she will not be able to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris (France).

It is worth noting that Russians participating in other sports were allowed neutral status. But this does not apply to track and field athletes.

“It’s impossible to accept this. I don’t understand my state of mind regarding the Olympics. As a sober person, I realize that it will be impossible to go to the Games in Paris. At the same time time, “I can’t let this situation go. It’s probably very stupid,” Lasitskene told reporters.
