“The region’s task is to provide equipment to the athletes. The question is not for us” – Gulyaev about Kulizhnikov’s race in a sweater

“The region’s task is to provide equipment to the athletes.  The question is not for us” – Gulyaev about Kulizhnikov’s race in a sweater

President of the Russian Skating Union Nikolai Guliaev told that issues surrounding the provision of suits to athletes were regional and, in the case of the world record holder Pavel Kulizhnikov it should be under the control of the Federation of the Krasnodar Territory.

Kulizhnikov previously said that at the second start of the Russian Championships in Irkutsk his last suit tore, so he ran the 1000m in a jacket and could not compete for medals.

—Who is responsible for the combination in this case?

— This is the task of the region, not the Russian national team. He presented himself in combination with the Krasnodar region, which he represents, this is a question that is clearly addressed to the representatives of the region. If he was competing in an international competition and had nothing to wear on the ice, that would raise a question for us, but otherwise, no. And of course, it’s not about the athlete either. His task is to run and the region must provide him with equipment,” Gulyaev told .
