Russian world champion is furious: 'It is disgraceful'

on Monday ruled out the WADA Russia for all competition in four years.

The decision does not fall in good soil with the triple Russian champion in the high jump Mariya Lasitskene.

On his Instagram profile, under a story raging she is over the decision:

"It is embarrassing for the practitioners to be alone."

Mariya Lasitskene became world champion in the high jump in 2015 under the Russian flag, but in 2017 and 2019, she became the world champion under the neutral flag, and she can now look forward to more championships under neutral flag for Wadas judgment.

the Decision comes as no surprise to the performer, who had predicted where it was headed:

"I was never in any doubt that it would end like this. I didn't believe in the stories that everything would go perfectly fine. But what happened today is shameful. It is embarrassing that the athletes are alone with their struggle, sportslederne just trying to protect ourselves with words and not with deeds," writes Lasitskene on his Instagram story, before she continues:

"What should I do now? I struggle and get my voice to be heard. I have never had any plans to change nationality and will not do it now. I will show that Russian athletes live, even when they compete under a neutral flag," writes Mariya Lasitskene.

Outside Russia, there has however been a joy to trace over Russia's harsh judgment.

the Danish minister of culture, Rasmus Prehn (S), wrote the following in an email to B. T. on the sentence:

a basic prerequisite for A strong global anti-doping system is that there will be crackdown on those who violate the international anti-doping rules, regardless of who it might be. It is good that WADA has revealed the new scandal, and that the truth is coming for the day. And it is positive to WADA in the light of the gravity of the case will activate the strictest penalties,"

the Penalties from Wada concretely means that Russia will miss the OLYMPICS in 2020 and the winter OLYMPICS in 2022. The exclusion, however, will not affect Russia's EM-participation to the summer, because the country is qualified and the host country for the finals. In addition to the OLYMPICS-the exclusion, so that means today's decision, that Russia not be allowed to attend the football WORLD cup in 2022, writes English Sky Sports.
