the Swedish biathlon star Sebastian Samuelsson said last season out loud what many biathlon people didn't dare or didn't want to.
– the problem I have is that the country, which does not have a functioning anti-doping organisations and the World anti-doping agency, Wada will not give permission for testing, is given to organize the world cup competition. I'm not going to go there, Samuelsson said in aftonbladet's case.
Comments spread like wildfire last season, but the swede would not have ever believed, what kind of anger cascade as a target he had.
It has been scandalous and repulsive, Samuelsson said the evening paper on Thursday in Slovenia.
He said he had received hundreds of hate messages.
the Russians were going to kill me, they say me stupid and claim I was using doping. I think it's unfair reaction to what I've been trying to talk to.
I Want a clean sport. I am sure that the Russian athletes want it. Another important message is that all athletes have to leave the race on the same line. I don't want any of that, what they have in Russia been, Samuelsson replied and pointed to the Russian systematic doping scam, inter alia, in sochi during the olympic games in 2014.
Slovenia Pokljukassa were some Russian fans in attendance. The swede got through without a care of their health.
– I'm not scared, but it's not a nice situation to read in the morning the first email, where someone announces his desire to kill me.
Wada restored the powers of the Russian anti-doping activities Rusadan in September.
I Hope in the future Russia could be biathlon races, but not their situation still not good. Rusada is involved in Wada, but the Moscow laboratory has not passed the requirements. A lot of things have to happen before you can be competitive in Russia, Samuelsson line.olympic jackpot
the Swede rose to the public consciousness last season when he came out of nowhere and win the olympic games in pursuit of silver and a message in gold.
my Life has not changed much, it still twice a day I work out and I'm in the camps. Of course the media has more interest to me, and the swedes more expectations.
