The newly minted Commission member of the IOC athletes Yelena Isinbayeva forgave those who did not let her go to the Olympics.
Yelena Isinbayeva collected at the Olympics in Rio press conference, where he thanked all the athletes who gave their votes and helped her become a member of the athletes ‘ Commission of the IOC. Now Elena will continue to protect the rights of athletes, but in a new way. And stressed that the rules for all athletes needs to be the same: it is for this she will now fight.
In General, everything was waiting for some sensational statements that it was, for example, will leave the sport, offended. But Elena is above all this.
— Thanks to everyone who came to support me at the press conference. Congratulate our national team on water Polo, which won the bronze medal. I am here today in a different incarnation. By the way, today is the final in the women’s pole vault. In the sector of the stadium you won’t see me, ” said the vaulter during a press conference in Rio – I won’t be able to compete for the gold medal, the reasons you know (Elena Isinbaeva, and the entire Olympic team of Russia in athletics was not allowed due to doping scandal to the Olympics – approx. Wday.ru). I want to clarify: I wasn’t allowed at the Olympics, not because I had doping problems. All my victories are clean. And for twenty years I proved it. All my samples were negative.
The IAAF had questions for our Federation. And I was a victim of this situation. Life is complex and round. We compare it with the boomerang. Arriving in Rio, I said, “Never will forgive you for the fact that I was wrongfully removed from the Games”. But being here changed my point of view: “I’m not the judge and not God.” If the President of the IAAF and its members believe that they acted honestly, let it be on their conscience. God will judge them.
Then thanked all the athletes who almost unanimously gave their votes for Yelena Isinbayeva – two-time Olympic champion and answered the questions of journalists which concerned mainly the doping scandal.
Immediately after the press conference in Rio Yelena Isinbayeva posted on his page “Vkontakte” the video, called “Yelena Isinbayeva. The final leap.” Your post she commented: “This jump concludes my career as an athlete – and opens a new stage in my life. I’m not giving up. I’m going on.” 30 minutes final jump Elena looked more trigatti of thousands of people.
