Quote Of The Day
“We went to this, prepared this situation, because we understand that we have a lot of problems at the bottom [of athletics in Russia]. Strengthening of doping testing at regional level competitions was our initiative. Our suspicion that the doping situation hasn’t improved in all regions has increased even more. But I cannot say that the athletes have withdrawn from the competition because they used illegal drugs until the relevant documents have been received.”
