No one will answer. For the first time in my 20 years of professional career, through
the court, I have to win the right to participate in the Olympics. Sorry for those of our
young and promising athletes, which is already deprived of the right to participate in
The world Cup this year… the feeling that the IAAF ordered to prevent
