Serious financial losses resulted in the removal from the Olympic games in Rio and other athletes. Participation in the Games could bring some earnings to our athletes. Some even refused performances in major tournaments for tournament preparation, which could not affect their material well-being.
This week it became clear: 67 Russian athletes at the Olympics in Rio not going. Doubts appeared in November last year – after the report of the world anti-doping Agency and the scandal. Sports arbitration court rejected the claims of all the athletes who appealed against the suspension from competition by the International Association of athletics federations. As an exception to the Olympic games allowed only Darya Klishina – long jumper. long trains in the USA and passes control there. Of course, athletes are upset and depressed. And at the end of the working week was announced about the suspension and the whole team of the national team of weightlifting. In short, doping scandal went too far.
34-year-old Yelena Isinbayeva admitted that until recently, hoping to go – still, after these Olympic games she has planned adequately to finish career. And the prize for first place is rather big. The athlete predicted a “gold” for which PoE she would have received at home the award in the amount of 4 million rubles. With regard to advertising contracts, Isinbayeva and with them it’s not as good as a few years ago.
In 2013 he expired her contract with the Chinese network of shops of sportswear Li Ning – athlete has received $1.5 million annually. In the best years Helen was advertised and Lady Speed Stick deodorant for $500 thousand. At the end of 2015 athlete launched his own brand ISINBAEVA, which produces branded poles, starred in advertising of the project “Open the juice!”.
Like a collapsed dream Yelena Isinbayeva about the last Olympics
“New requests from the standing brands have not been reported, – has shared with “StarHit” surrounded by athletes. – Except that offered to advertise any gadgets – for 50 thousand euros. But Isinbayeva has requested a minimum of 150 thousand and the contract was never concluded.
“We are all devastated, depressed – says “StarHit” colleague of Elena’s team Olga Mullin. – Of course, knew what was going to refuse, because politics is now stronger than the mind. But it was still very painful. Soon going on vacation – somewhere at sea. The TV won’t even fit and the Olympics I will not watch!”
About the same set most of the other athletes. Many of them, by the way, did not get the prize money and lost their planned income.
“I’m due to all of this, not only miss the Olympics, but also the European Championships, and Diamond League world series – shared with “StarHit” Sergey Shubenkov, world champion in run on 110 meters with barriers. – We will demand compensation. I’m upset, but parents and a wife I support. Mom calm, but the Pope is configured expressive – swears, like, all bought. As for contracts, I have they were – with “Nike” and “Red bull”.
