Slovenia: We don't need a 'Cold War' in sports — European Olympic Committee Pres.

«I think it's very bad if politics would be decisive in sports and I do not think that we need in sports or anywhere else the atmosphere of Cold War,» stated Janez Kocijancic, the President of European Olympic Committees, during an interview in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana on Monday. Kocijancic was commenting on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board's decision about... Еще Russia's participation in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018, which is expected to be made on Tuesday in Lausanne. «I can't see a possibility that the Olympic games would be universal and at the top level of the quality without the biggest country in the world,» he said, adding «I think that the Russian Olympic Committee and Russian authorities did a lot to conduct honest and just investigations.» Twenty five Russian athletes have been banned since the beginning of last month for alleged doping offences. So far, 1,240 doping samples have been taken from the Russian national team.
