Skobrev: “I have no right to criticize Semerikov for his decision to settle in Uzbekistan”

Olympic medalist Ivan Skobrev believes that he has no right to criticize Danila Semerikov for his decision to join the Uzbek national team.

Semerikov informed the Russian Skating Union about this. He was the first Russian speed skater who, after Skobrev, managed to win a medal at the World Championships over a distance of 10,000 meters.

“It is a shame that our athletes do not yet have the opportunity to compete on the international stage. I think everyone suffers from this situation. The sport itself, designed to unite people, is losing. We can only hope that soon our guys will be able to compete with the strongest.

I have no right to blame him for this decision. I’m not calling for moving to other teams, but I don’t see the point in saying it’s wrong, criticizing and banning people from moving to other teams. The sporting age is short, every athlete dreams of performing as well as possible, during the most serious competitions and as often as possible throughout their career. I hope everything works out for him. I want to continue winning medals at World Cups, World Championships and setting records,” Skobrev told .
