I believed that the position of the athletes ‘ Commission of the IOC and the IOC: “to protect clean athletes of the world and defend their rights, regardless of their nationality, skin color, ethnicity, language and so on, even if it is only one person from the country…” will be shown in action, but alas… I resent the words with deeds… What is left of the Olympic principles, from the spirit of the Olympics, the idea of the Olympic games?!
