Kabaeva has also shared his attitude to this difficult situation.

      “Yelena Isinbayeva had every right to beautifully complete his career. And was ready for it. The fact that she was not allowed to compete at the Olympics is not just injustice, it’s a complete mess! To prevent the net from the point of view of doping athletes to compete only because in the team there are those who have been convicted of reception of the forbidden preparations, – it’s beyond good, evil, and common sense. This is the real barbarism. And hard assessment in this case is justified because the functionaries who took the decision to ban, well aware that high performance sport is an absolutely unique thing,” shared the celebrity.

      According to Kabaeva, in sports, in any case should not impose a collective responsibility. Such actions she described as monstrous. “It’s all the same that to forbid Mozart to participate in the concert which he was preparing for several years, just because another musician before the performance broke the rules of training…” – said the star in its position.
