Double Olympic biathlon champion Olga Zaitseva responded to Trondheim Mayor Kent Ranum’s statement that local authorities do not intend to allow Russian athletes to participate in the World Ski Championships.

Earlier, the mayor of Trondheim expressed the position of the local government, which does not intend to allow Russian athletes to compete. Trondheim will host the next World Ski Championships.

“Whatever their position, it remains that way. » Why is he expressing it again? It’s clear they won’t let us in. There is nothing new here, the circus continues. We realized a long time ago that we weren’t allowed anywhere. It is clear that they are all violating the Olympic Charter, all the Olympic principles. This will continue until the people there in Europe come to their senses, until they raise their heads and open their eyes. They are not yet acting of their own free will and are following the instructions of another state. They are essentially a captive state. Unlike us, they do not constitute an independent state. But let them obey like their master’s dogs.

— So they are acting on instructions from the United States?

– I think so. Certainly. Are they making this all up themselves? This is why Israeli athletes are invited. “All this constitutes a double standard,” Zaitseva told .

Russian skiers have not participated in international tournaments since March 2022, sanctions were imposed by the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS).
