“Whenever a regular meeting will be held, I think we will be allowed to participate in international competitions” – skier Korostelev

Skier Savely Korostelev told that he believed in the admission of Russian athletes to international competitions whenever regular meetings of international sports organizations took place.

Russians and Belarusians have been suspended from competitions under the auspices of the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) since March 2022 due to the situation in Ukraine.

— Do you continue to follow the World Cup? They say that without the Russians there is no intrigue there.

– Certainly. It is a world championship after all. We’ll have to go there one day. Therefore, you need to understand who is responsible for it.

– So you see this from the point of view that the return is near?

— For me, it’s not a return, but rather a beginning.

— Do you sincerely believe that Russian athletes will soon be allowed to compete internationally?

— Rather, not faith, but positive thinking. Whenever there is a regular meeting, I think we will be admitted. But if they say “no,” there’s no hard feelings either. After all, in this case nothing changes,” Korostelev told .
