Skier Bolshunov offered to receive the Order of Merit to the Fatherland

Political scientist Anton Khashchenko on the air of the program “There is a theme!” on proposed to reward the triple Olympic champion in cross-country skiing Alexandra Bolshunova Order “For Merit to the Fatherland”

Previously, the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) failed to recognize Bolshunov as the best athlete of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, awarding the award to South Korean short tracker Hwang Dae Hong. He won the 1500m and silver in the relay. Bolshunov won three gold medals in the Chinese capital, as well as silver and bronze.

– It is clear for what reasons Bolshunov did not receive this award. I just looked at Alexander’s awards and titles and I don’t see him with the Order of Merit for the Fatherland. They could have given it to him,” Khashchenko said.

“There is also a proposal for all our winter athletes to come to an agreement with an African country that does not participate in the Winter Olympics, and for everyone to come out under the flag of that country,” added the political scientist.

Bolshunov, 25, holds the Order of Alexander Nevsky and the Order of Friendship.
