“I was a victim of racism” – The Cuban Montalvo responded to the insults of the Russian coach

Recall that the incident occurred during the fifth and decisive match of the Super League final in Kaliningrad between Lokomotiv and Uralochka. During the time out, television cameras caught the moment when Voronkov gives instructions to his volleyball players. Even the mentor says the following phrase: “Why are you catching this monkey again?” Meaning Ailama Montalvo.

“Yesterday at a gala dinner with teammates, coaches and club staff, I found out from a fan that I was a victim of racism in the Russian Super League final. Then I carefully watched the video, where the words of the head coach of Lokomotiv about me were clearly heard. I can only say that I have no problem with it, even with him (the coach) who treated me so disrespectfully.

I know who I am, what color my skin is and I am proud of it. I am not ashamed. I love people for what they have in their hearts, and not for the color of their skin, nationality or anything else. His words about me didn’t hurt at all, because the problem is that a person in search of results has lost control of his insatiable ego and insulted another person. This only shows your lack of basic moral values ​​and professionalism.

Should I have responded more harshly? Yes. But I don’t want to return evil for evil, I don’t allow myself to sink to such a level, I am more than that. I declare with satisfaction that the words of this gentleman did not make me stop and stop doing my job. He defeated him in this final morally. With this post I do it again. Finally, I want to thank all the club staff who took a firm position on this issue, my teammates and coaches for their support, as well as everyone who wrote to me,” Montalvo wrote on his social networks.
