Why do kids play sports now? Biathlete of the Russian national team – about the suspension
September 23, 2022
Biathlete of the Russian national team Natalia Gerbulova spoke about the development of sports during the period of exclusion of domestic athletes from participation in international competitions.
“I want the sport to not disappear now. It’s sad, of course, but if this suspension situation continues, why would kids go in for sports? Okay, we, biathletes and skiers, we can participate in three cycles of the Olympics, but what about gymnasts, figure skaters? They have one Olympics to show a good result. Our young men and juniors will not be able to see what we saw – the junior world championships, the winter and summer youth Olympic Games. This is very sad, very offensive and unpleasant. I believe that sport should always be, regardless of what is happening in the world. I hope and believe that it will not be for long, ”said Gerbulova in an interview with the correspondent of the Championship, Angelina Nikolaeva.
The full interview with Natalia Gerbulova can be read at the Championship tomorrow, September 24th.
