President of the Russian Olympic Committee Stanislav Pozdnyakov said that he hoped for the restoration of the rights of Russian athletes in international tournaments. This site reports sports.ru.
Thus, the head of the ROC is confident that Russian athletes will again be able to compete under their own flag and anthem.
“I am absolutely sure that the clouds will dissipate, justice will prevail,” Pozdnyakov said.
He called the development of the continuity of generations and the transfer of experience to young athletes the main task for the entire committee. Such an experience, in his opinion, young athletes will remember later for many years to come.
“It is important for young athletes to communicate with those who have already achieved great success in the Olympic arena,” the head of the ROC emphasized.
He also stressed that it is not customary for his department to divide everyone into “friends” and “enemies”, because everyone who respects Olympic values is friends.
Earlier, the Russian Olympic Committee commented on the decision of the IOC to exclude Russia from the Olympic Games-2024.
