In addition, the head coach of the French biathlon juniors had cut up a French flag at the Junior World Championships in Soldier Hollow (USA), which ended on Sunday, in protest against the previously imposed Russian flag ban and glued it to the Russian wax cabin, which only had found out about their starting ban at the World Championships.

“I’m sorry I voted for Martin on the NOC committee and that such great athletes turned out to be shitty people,” Pidruchnyi wrote. The five-time Olympic gold medalist, who was elected to the IOC Athletes’ Commission at the Beijing Winter Olympics, wrote in response on Instagram: “I understand your anger and sadness but do not allow you to offend anyone for disagreeing with what his is brother said! In case you forgot, my name is Martin and I haven’t done an interview lately!”
