Russian figure skater Adelina Sotnikova, who reported a failed doping test after the 2014 Olympics, commented for the first time.
In particular, he claimed that the media misinterpreted his statements. The athlete stressed that the journalists decided to make a scandal out of nowhere.
“Why did you turn it upside down and inflate it yourself? Neither then, nor now, the international doping control system had no questions for me. Then the sensation did not occur, sorry.
And finally: no one will take away the main thing from me! Sochi-2014, minutes on the podium, the Russian anthem, the eyes of the fans and an incredible feeling – the feeling that I performed adequately for my country! – wrote the figure skater on the social network.
It was previously reported that the Republic of Korea Sports and Olympic Committee (KSOC) will ask the IOC to investigate Sotnikova’s allegation of a positive doping test in 2014.
