SOT, Sergei Shubenkov: «Truer words were never spoken! Of course, there is little disappointment, but I'm glad I have a third medal of the World Championship in a row.»
Russian athlete Sergei Shubenkov received a hero’s welcome at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport on Wednesday, after winning a silver medal in the 110 metre hurdles at the IAAF World Championships in London.
Shubenkov performed... Еще under a neutral flag as the Russian National Team is still banned by the IAAF due to doping allegations.
The medal winner said it was «weird» not to see the Russian flag at the awards ceremony. However he went on to say that «the rest was exactly the same. We were training with all the same equal conditions, which we would have had if we had been a team, a real team. And the competition took place in a regular mode.»
This marks the third consecutive time Shubenkov has won a World or European Championship medal in the 110m hurdles.
